Mmmm... Banana Bread.

Paleo Banana Walnut Bread
Just another stormy day here in New England -- a nor'easter complete with rain, snow, and strong winds. It's definitely a day to hunker down inside, stay warm, and bake something yummy and comforting for the boys... and you can't go wrong with bananas and walnuts, right out of the oven. So good.

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2-3 TBSP honey (I've also used maple syrup)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf pan with waxed or parchment paper, (so it doesn't stick to the bottom. In a mixer, blend all of the wet ingredients, (vanilla, coconut oil, eggs, honey). Add mashed bananas and mix well. In separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients, (coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon.) Add to mixer and blend well. Stir in chopped walnuts.

Spread into loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until golden brown and cooked through the center. Mmmm...
