Megan’s Side Notes:
I wish they made air fresheners with the scent of a freshly baked loaf of banana bread. When a bad day comes along, baking banana bread just seems to make everything better. Cheap therapy really.
Anyway – Every time I bake banana bread, it is a different recipe depending on what I am craving that specific day. Sometimes, I like more of a sweet- desert bread. Other times, I need a light, nutritious bread for a fast breakfast or snack.
This recipe is the best of all worlds, and provides delicious nourishment to the body. Best of all, it is made out of coconut flour! I get the comfort of banana bread without gluten and sweetened by raw honey. It’s the little things I’m telling ya;)
1. Omit the honey/maple syrup, or add more- depending on the sweetness you are craving.
2. Tastes wonderful with a coconut oil/honey spread or even almond butter and cinnamon.
Dr Jockers Comments:
I have always loved banana bread! This is a lower carb, grain-free version and I like to omit the honey/maple syrup and add in 1 tbsp of liquid stevia or keto maple syrup instead.
Coconut flour is rich in good fiber that helps the microflora to flourish in your intestinal system. Grass-fed butter or ghee and coconut oil are rich in good medium chain fats that improve immune function and reduce inflammation throughout the body.
This is an excellent bread to bring to a party or get together and an especially helpful recipe for the holiday season when you smell banana bread everywhere! Enjoy!
