Blog Series: Power Breakfasts for Supercharged Mornings - Paleo Banana Bread
This recipe is definitely one of my favourites. I've always been a big fan of a banana bread breakfast. I, like most other people, assumed it was a healthy(ish) choice but one bite told me this definitely tasted too good to be true.
Many years ago while working in a corporate position, I'd have a slice of toasted, buttered banana bread and a coffee for my daily mid-morning snack. I gained around 2kgs in 1 month despite this being my only change. And so it was confirmed, banana bread is really just cake with another name!
However, it does not have to be this way!
The incredible caramel/banana taste and soft buttery texture comes mostly from the banana. You really don't need flour, added sugar or any other nasties. This pure, paleo-style, flourless banana bread is divine served alone or warmed slightly and spread with butter. I love it plain with a cup of my trusty green and jasmine tea.
I hope you enjoy!
4 organic eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 cup of dessicated coconut
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
Optional: You could add 4 teaspoons of coconut sugar, maple syrup or stevia if you prefer a slightly sweeter taste.*
Place all ingredients in to a food processor or blender and blend until forms a smooth batter.
Pour the batter into a loaf tin, lined with baking paper to prevent loss from sticking.
Bake on 180C for 30-40 minutes.
You will know when this bread is cooked as the top remains liquid until the very end. When the top is golden and firm, remove from the oven and test by pushing a butter knife from the top to the bottom of the bread - if the knife comes out clean then the bread is ready, if not place back in the oven and repeat after 5-10 minutes.
*I add 4 teaspoons of organic granulated stevia at times, othertimes I enjoy it with only the sweetness of the coconut and bananas. I'd suggest trying both and seeing which way you prefer it. If going for the sugar option then be sure to serve this with a protein source such as Almond Butter or Tahini.
Until next time, stay deliciously healthy.
