This recipe is AMAZING (in my opinion)! Dear hubby wasn’t as much of a fan, but he really likes banana bread with LOTS of sugar and LOTS of chocolate chips. So this recipe certainly isn’t the “banana cake” that he likes! I still thought it was so good and I’ve made it twice this week! The kids really like it too! We had an overabundance of over ripe bananas and this was a great use for them! I’ve had so many recently that I think I have two gallon sized Ziploc bags in the freezer full and ready for smoothies! I didn’t want to add to the overcrowding issue in my freezer and was determined to find another use that tasted great!
This recipe was sent to me from a friend the Holistic Mom’s Group. This group has been amazing for me! They are so supportive and so many of them have restricted or creative diets as well! There are always recipes and food ideas going around on the email loop! I’ve also been able to gain valuable information regarding health, childrearing, medications, chemicals, additives, plastics and more than could ever be listed! This group has been amazing and a GREAT source of information! Ladies, you know who you are! THANK YOU! I highly recommend joining a group if there is one in your area. To find out go to the Holistic Mom’s website and check!
So back to the banana bread! This recipe is from a Paleo Blog that I was alerted to. There are a lot of other great wheat free, gluten free recipes for breads on this blog as well that I’m hoping to try in the near future!
So give this one a try. Have a cup of tea in the afternoon when kids are resting, pull out a good book and enjoy a toasted slice of paleo banana bread! Mmmmm!
Paleo Banana Bread Recipe
3 eggs, separated
5 tbsp honey
4 tbsp olive oil
2 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cups almond flour or finely grounded almonds
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Cream the egg yolks and honey in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
Add the oil, vanilla, mashed banana, cinnamon, baking soda and almond flour and combine well.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Fold egg whites into the banana mixture to pull it away from the sides before gradually folding the rest of the egg whites into the mixture.
Line a loaf tin with Pam and pour the banana mixture into this.
Place in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
