We’ve been following a paleo way of life for a couple of weeks now, and are feeling the benefits of a cleaner way of eating. I have not missed bread as much as I thought I would, which is good, as carbs like bread do not get along with my metabolism at all.
Because a paleo diet really cuts down on sugar, I’m finding that the natural sugars that I get from fruit, are crazy sweet, and I know it can’t be because we’ve bought really ripe fruit! There are times though, when I know I will need that treat fix, and I found a recipe online for a banana bread that I thought would hit the spot.
It does call for some special ingredients like coconut oil, almond flour and coconut flour, but we managed to buy these without a problem here in the UK. Using non-wheat flours means that this is a gluten free banana bread, so perfect for those of you with an intolerance to gluten. It had a nice hit of sweetness, without being overly sweet, and the almonds gave the bread a nice crunch. It kept well for a couple of days. I thought it tasted its absolute best, just warm out of the oven!
