Paleo Banana Bread

Throughout the year my mom use to always make banana but bread for our family. Not to mention my mom hates bananas, however somehow she managed to make "THE BEST" banana bread!!! Since the better homes recipe is not as healthy as I would like it to be, I decided to make a healthier version for my babies.

The kids absolutely love it! They think it's cake! I cannot complain if they want to eat it either because it's healthy and sugar free!!!

If my picky son will eat it, it's definitely a winner!!!

Ingredients:
4-5 bananas, ripe and mashed
1 cup coconut flour 
6 eggs 
6 tablespoons coconut oil or coconut butter, melted
1/3 cup Greek yogurt (I used fagé)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of sea salt

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees ºF. Grease a 1 pound loaf pan.

Combine all ingredients for bread and blend until thoroughly mixed. Continue blending on medium speed for 1 minute to allow coconut flour to soak up the liquids.

Pour batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Allow bread to set and cool slightly before removing from pan. Slice and enjoy topped with a dollop of sweet & creamy maple nut butter!
