Banana Bread Healthy Style
Not only do I love bananas but I love banana bread! Recently at a family party there was homemade banana bread and it was delicious! However, just thinking about the butter, sugar and flour make me cringe a little! lol! Thankfully, I stumbled upon a healthier version that is also paleo friendly (I believe?).
Instead of butter and flour I substituted coconut flour and coconut oil. I used all natural peanut butter but you can use any nut butter. Confession: my son helped me out and he added some Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips – these are vegan, soy & dairy free so I still count it as healthy! You can leave them out if you wish but they do make a good addition!
My little helper!
The bread came out so moist that the bottom stuck a little to the pan. It may not look picture perfect but it was delicious!! Everyone loved it! Freezing some for later too!
*4 ripe bananas
*1/2 cup natural nut butter
*4 Tbs coconut oil, melted (organic refined if possible)
*1/2 cup coconut flour (or almond flour)
*1 Tbs cinnamon
*1 tsp baking soda
*1 tsp baking powder
*1 tsp vanilla extract
* Preheat Oven to 350
*Mix the bananas, eggs and nut butter. Add coconut oil and blend together well in a blender.
*Add in coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and blend together.
*Pour the batter into a loaf pan (I sprayed mine with coconut oil spray) and bake for 35-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center to see if it comes out clean.
* Let cool then flip your pan over onto a cooling rack.
*Enjoy!! Taste’s even better warm!
