Banana bread brings back memories of being a kid and comfort for me. Not only does it taste good, I makes my kitchen smell awesome!!
- 3 ripe bananas
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbs honey (you can add more if you like it sweeter. some of the sweetness of the batter will cook off)
- 2 cups of almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
I think this is easiest done in a food processor because it creams the banana really nicely. If you do not have one, just mix the first 5 ingredients in one bowl creaming the banana as much as you can. Mix the remaining 4 ingredients except the walnuts in another.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet then fold in your walnuts.
If you have a food processor, process the first 5 ingredients together first until it becomes nice and creamy. Add the remaining four ingredients and pulse several times until well incorporated. Next add the walnuts pulse once or twice.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan. I added some walnuts to the top of the batter then put into a pre heated 350 degree oven. Bake for about 45 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean it is done. If not give it 5 more minutes or so. This was my first time making this and I started with 30 minutes and had to add 5 minutes 3 times. If your oven runs hot either reduce your heat to 325 or check the banana bread at 35 minutes or so.
I ate mine smeared with some grass fed butter. Yum, yum yum!!!
