Banana Bread (No Sugar Added)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 small/med very overripe bananas or 3 larger ones, mashed well
  • 4 large eggs room temp
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted and cooled to almost room temp
  • 1 3/4 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • Optional 1/4 cup of coconut sugar and 1/2 cup of almond butter. See bottom of post for instructions

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Whisk together all dry ingredients and set aside. 
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a medium loaf pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and mashed bananas, then vanilla and coconut oil until well combined.
  4. Slowly stir the dry mixture into the wet (don’t use an electric mixer – you will overmix the batter and prevent it from rising properly) just until moistened and no visible flour remains.
  5. Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the loaf pan resting on a wire rack, then remove using the parchment paper to help you, slice and serve.

Not about the sugar free life?! 
Feel free to add 1/4 coconut sugar in with the egg mixture. 1/2 cup of almond butter would also be great to add here. Fold in some DF chocolate chips and nuts too!
