Foodie Friday: Paleo Banana Bread

The most frustrating thing about buying bananas is that you can eat maybe 3 and then they start getting black spots.  Then no one touches them.  They turn black so you think you’ve wasted 2-3 bananas.  So what should you do?  Make banana bread, of course!!


And this banana bread recipe from Gutsy by Nature is so moist!

She uses coconut flour and tapioca flour as the starch and honey as the sweetener.  Where do you get coconut flour and tapioca flour (aka tapioca starch)?  I got mine at Sprouts.  But you can also get it a Whole Foods or if you can’t find it anywhere, is a great place to go for uncommon ingredients.

It followed the recipe exactly (except I added 1/2 cup walnuts for texture), and it came together very quickly.  I baked mine for 55 minutes, and it was perfect!  I had two pieces topped with some grass-fed butter as soon as it was cool enough to touch!

Y’all should definitely give this paleo banana bread a try!  If you don’t want those black bananas to go to waste, peel them and freeze them in a zip-loc bag.  Once you are ready to make some banana bread, let them thaw and use them like that!  Works just the same!

Let me know how you like them!
