Banana Bread (gluten free)

 Banana Bread (gluten free)

There is something magical and comforting about banana bread served lightly warm and toasted. This is my gluten free version from my book Purely Delicious. It’s yummy on it’s own or topped with a little ricotta + honey.

What’s great about it

Bananas are a terrific energy food and a great source of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. They add moisture and sweetness to baked goods, which means you can reduce the amount of sweetener and oil considerably. Almonds are packed full of protein + heart healthy  fats that  are kind to your arteries and can help lower cholesterol as well as keep blood sugars stable. This makes a nice change from typical store bought and cafe style banana breads that are generally high in refined white flour, sugar and saturated fats. I love using  macadamia nut oil when baking, it’s  a delicious source of monounsaturated fats that can help support good health and wellbeing. 

This delicious recipe can be found in my cookbook PURELY DELICIOUS
