The recipe we want to share with you is actually a paleo banana bread, which means it’s made with simple, unprocessed ingredients. Sounds amazing, right? Let’s take a closer look!
Not only is coconut flour banana bread considered paleo, but it’s gluten-free too! This is a great option if you’re serving a mixed crowd that may include people with a variety of dietary restrictions.
- 1 cup Honeyville Organic Coconut Flour
- 2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Bananas
- 4 Eggs
- 1/2 cup of Melted Butter
- 5 tbsps Honey
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Chef Tess Wise Woman of the East Spice
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tbsp Vanilla
Start by preheating the oven to 300 degrees.
Next, rehydrate the bananas by soaking them in a small container of water. Don’t forget to pat dry the excess water.
Because this loaf can be sticky, you’ll need to line your pan with parchment paper, so that it’s easy to remove from the pan after baking.
In a mixing bowl combine bananas, honey, butter, vanilla, and eggs, and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl mix coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and Wise Woman of the East Spice.
Finally, combine the wet and dry ingredients, taking care to mix well until evenly combined.
Press into the baking pan. Pop in the oven for one hour and fifteen minutes. Allow it to cool for ten minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
More About Paleo
You may have heard the paleo diet referred to as ‘the caveman diet.’ This is because a paleo diet focuses on only consuming ingredients that can be hunted or gathered. So it replicates the kind of diet our ancestors would have had. The idea is that this type of consumption is easier for the body to manage, and reduces the intake of sugars and other processed foods that are associated with unhealthy lifestyles.
If you are considering following a paleo diet, make sure that you talk to your doctor first. It’s important to ensure that you’re receiving adequate nutrition based on your lifestyle and health goals.
