Sweet Treats | Almond Flour Banana Bread

Do you have that one thing that your mom or dad or grandparent used to bake that reminds you of childhood?? Banana bread is one for me! 🙂

Lately I’ve been working really hard to balance my hormones and I know that grains & dairy definitely are disrupters of that (more on that here)!! BUT I really wanted to make some banana bread the other day – it was cold out and I was just really craving some baking! SO i found this fantastic recipe here and it was so good i had to share it with all y’all!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups almond flour (made from blanched almonds, not almond meal)
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 small extra ripe bananas, equal to 1 cup mashed/pureed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or coconut)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips, plus more for topping

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a 8×4 loaf pan with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In medium bowl add almond flour, tapioca flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. In large bowl whisk together mashed banana, eggs, oil and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Pour dry ingredients into large bowl of wet ingredients, using spatula to stir. Then fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan, topping with more chocolate chips.
  6. Bake banana bread for 20 minutes uncovered, then add foil for the last 15-20 minutes of baking to prevent the top from browning too quickly. Mine took about 40 minutes!
  7. Allow bread to cool in pan for 15 minutes before lifting from the parchment paper to remove bread. Slice into slices and ENJOY!
