Banana Bread has always been one of my absolute favorite things! It is also really easy to put together and smells wonderful. I will probably be posting a couple different versions of banana bread since there are many combinations that work with flours and sugars etc.
This particular recipe was found online from the skinny twinkie site. I had a TON of bananas going ripe and needed to use them, so I looked through a ton of recipes to determine which was the best. I found this one and what really set it apart was that it has no sugar additives…only bananas and honey! Not only is it Gluten Free, its also Dairy Free. Hooray! Keep in mind that because this recipe is lower in sugar its not quite as sweet as your typical banana bread. Also, the original seemed to be lacking a bit with salt (only 1/4 teaspoon didnt taste salty enough to me.) I use coconut oil in this instead of butter. If I used salted butter I probably wouldn’t need to increase the salt amount. I usually get this brand of brown rice flour or this brand, both great! Make sure to check out the comments there is some great add ideas that people came up with! Enjoy!
