Banana Bread

IMG_4700.jpg

When my daughter walked in & saw this loaf of Banana Bread on the counter, she was so excited!  Banana Bread is one of those classic things that's great to have as an afternoon snack with some hot tea or served along side some scrambled eggs with breakfast.  It's a perfect thing to take on a car trip or send to school.  

Plus, inevitably, I always have a few extra, over-ripe bananas laying around, so it's nice to have something to do with them besides using them in a smoothie.

This bread is a snap to mix up & stores nicely in the refrigerator for a full week!


Banana Bread

ingredients

wet ingredients:

3 large, very ripe bananas
4 eggs
3 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

dry ingredients:

3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

*you will also need a smidge of oil to grease the loaf pan

optional add ins:
1/3 cup chocolate chips or chopped pecans

directions

heat oven to 350.

in a medium size mixing cup or bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together. 

in the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the bananas, maple syrup & avocado oil until bananas are mostly blended {it's ok if there are small chunks of banana}

then add in the eggs, vanilla & apple cider vinegar mixing just until eggs are completely combined.

add flour mixture into the bowl & blend on low-medium speed until totally mixed, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.  if desired, add in nuts or chocolate chips now.

in a glass loaf pan, grease the sides & bottom of the dish, then cut a rectangle out of parchment paper the size of the bottom of the pan & lay it on top of the greased bottom.

pour the bread batter into the pan & bake 40-45 minutes, until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.
