I love banana bread. So last week, when I had some overripe bananas that were perfect for banana bread, I decided to try my hand at making some. I came up with this recipe, and it turned out pretty good! My boyfriend and I went through the loaf in two days. A lot of banana bread recipes called for 2-3 bananas, but I like my bread really banana-y, and I found that adding the coconut flakes gave it a little texture. This bread is really moist, so if you’re looking for a drier bread that you can easily spread butter on, this isn’t it. I have also made this with Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, and that was delicious as well! So here it is for anyone interested:
- 2 cups Almond Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- 4 Ripe Bananas mashed
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 1/4 cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
- Optional: 1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix almond flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and coconut flakes together in a mixing bowl.
In a seperate bowl, mix together the bananas, eggs, vanilla, honey and coconut oil.
Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, and stir together until dough is moistened. If you are opting for the chocolate chips, add those in now and stir.
Pour dough into a greased 9x3 loaf pan.
Bake banana bread in the preheated oven until brown and crisp around the edges, about 45 minutes.
Hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave me any comments if you have tried it, this is my first baked goods recipe.
