Grain-Free No-Added-Sugar Banana Bread

bananabreadI had a lot of bananas hanging around yesterday, from a long, busy, smoothieless week prior, and they needed to be used before they over ripened. Hence this banana bread, which is so moist and delicious, it’s as much a dessert as it is a wholesome breakfast.

This bread has no added sugar, but relies on the ripe bananas for its sweetness. It’s also gluten free.

Here you go!

Ingredients

  • 5 ripe bananas mashed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of real salt or sea salt

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas
  • Add eggs, almond butter and vanilla and stir gently
  • Melt butter and add it to the egg mixture and gently stir again, don’t over mix
  • In a separate bowl, combine hazelnut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and sea salt
  • Combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir until batter is smooth
  • Pour batter into a very well greased loaf pan
  • Bake 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
  • Allow bread to sit for about 30 minutes before slicing
  • Slice and serve, warm
  • Refrigerate over night if you want to serve it the next morning
  • Enjoy!
