Wholesome Paleo Banana Bread
Paleo Banana Bread
I just love Banana Bread as a healthy breakfast, snack option or lunch box option and this paleo recipe is made with 100% natural and whole foods making it nutrient rich as well as delicious. Make sure you use ripe bananas for optimum nutritional value. Bananas have been linked to preventing cancer and asthma, lowering blood pressure, improving heart health and promoting regularity. They are also high Vitamin B6, Manganese, Vitamin C,Potassium, Dietary Fiber, Protein, Magnesium, Folate, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin A and Iron. The other ingredients are also rich in protein, dietary fibre, vitamins, good fats and other essential nutrients. This recipe is great for gut/digestive and heart health, cholesterol lowering, weight loss and general well-being. Guaranteed to please the fussiest eater, this Paleo Banana Bread is additive/preservative free, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and yeast free.
4 ripe bananas (plus an additional for decorating)
4 organic eggs beaten
2 cups almond meal
5 teaspoons raw organic honey
1/2 cup raw organic coconut oil
1/4 cup chai seeds
1/4 cup walnuts (optional)
1 1/2 tsp allergy free baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 squeeze of lemon juice
Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius on bake.
Grease bread tin with butter and coconut flour or baking paper.
Mash bananas in a mixing bowl. Add coconut oil, vanilla, eggs, honey and baking soda. Squeeze lemon juice on top of baking soda to activate. Add chai seeds, almond meal, cinnamon and walnuts. Stir until mixed well. Pour into bread tin. Slice a banana and place on top to decorate.
Bake in oven for approximately 40 minutes until golden brown and the skewer returns dry when inserted into the centre of the bread. Remove from oven and let cool. Serve as is, with butter, honey, jam or homemade icecream. Enjoy!
