I can’t take credit for this healthy banana bread recipe, I didn’t come up with it. It was given to me by a friend. And they didn’t come up with it either, so I pretend it’s from some amazing grandma somewhere from way back when.

Who knows.

So if I’m pimping out your great grannies banana bread recipe, I’m sorry.

What I do know, is that this banana bread is awesome!

There’s no refined junk flour, or sugar, and unlike most “healthy desserts,” this one doesn’t rely to heavy on nut butters on flours. To much nut butter and/or flour can start to skew your Omega Fat ratio (fats involved in inflammation).

If you’re used to eating Snickers bars, Ho-hos, and donuts, this might not be sweet enough for you.

Consider adding a tablespoon of raw honey, or maple syrup. If you’ve been refraining from excess sugar (like you should be trying to) your palate has probably adjusted, and the natural sweetness of the bananas should be sufficient!

Did I mention this is SUPER SIMPLE! That might be the best part. I love simple recipes like this.

Banana Bread

  • 3 Large Ripe Bananas
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 4 Tablespoons melted Grass Fed Butter (Kerrygold is a common brand)

  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of salt (leave out if nut butter is salted)
  • Walnut pieces (optional) Add after you blend the batter. Mix with fork

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Throw all the ingredients into a food processor or blender. Blend till smooth
  3. Transfer to a Greased 9×5 or 7×11 pan.
  4. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. I have a convection oven so I was on the 3o minute side.

If your palate hasn’t adjusted to lower sugar foods, throw a pat of grass fed butter, and drizzle with raw honey, or maple syrup!
