Crave Worthy Grain-Free Banana Bread

When I decided to try cutting grains out of my diet, thanks to the Whole 30 plan, I thought I would have to say goodbye to some of my favorite comfort foods, like bread. My family was not happy either, since I am the baker in the family, and love to make cookies, banana breads, and other treats.

Recently I started experimenting with re-making some of our family favorites using paleo and grain-free flours. This banana bread is at the top of my list for “you won’t miss the grains”, and the recipe is requested by friends every time I serve it. The bananas and the yogurt keep it super moist, and I love that the sugar content is pretty low. I have also made it using Lakanto, a sugar alternative made from monkfruit, that works pretty well.

GRAIN FREE BANANA BREAD

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar (or sugar alternative)

2 eggs

1/3 cup yogurt

1 tsp vanilla paste

3 1/2 bananas

1 1/4 cup almond flour

1 1/4 cup paleo baking flour

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 tsp baking soda

Walnuts or chocolate chips (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Blend the butter and sugar together until smooth. Mix in eggs, one at a time.

Mash the bananas and add to the butter/sugar/eggs along with the vanilla and the yogurt. Mix well.

Add the flours, salt and baking soda, and nuts (if desired). Mix until combined.

Pour into a greased pan (I use a loaf pan), and bake on 375 degrees for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

ENJOY!! And get ready to make more, this disappears pretty quickly in my house!
