Mildly Sweet Banana Bread – Paleo, GF, Dairy-Free

I definitely have a sweet tooth, but it doesn’t always require satisfaction from something with an exaggerated sugar content.  Sometimes, a mildly sweet, comforting flavor is exactly what I need.  This banana bread gets all of it’s sweetness from just 2 mashed bananas.  Before realizing how bad of a match gluten and I were for each other, I used to like bran muffins.  I would say the sweetness of this banana bread is comparable to one of those, but with a banana flavor.  Oh, and butter!  It has a nice buttery flavor.  You really don’t need to spread butter on these babies because the flavor is already there.

Ingredients:

2 ripe bananas

4 eggs

1/2 cup butter

1-1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk

3/4 cup banana flour

Directions:   Preheat oven to 350′ and grease a 9″ round pan.  Puree all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.  Pour in pan.  Bake for 35 minutes.  Allow to cool completely before turning out of pan.

I’ve had several recipes using banana flour lately.  I was nervous to use it at first, but I’ve been so pleased with it.  So far, I consider it to be the closest grain-free flour to regular, white, baking flour that I have used.  To each their own, as I’m sure there are others who would disagree, but I must say it is worth trying.  I’ve had so much success with it!
