Banana bread is one of my favorite baked goods, right after lemon cake 🙂
This paleo version is as moist and delicious as the regular one, but has fewer carbs, no refined sugar, and it’s gluten free.
I normally don’t eat any baked goods, since they are high in sugar and carbohydrates. However, when I decide to treat myself and enjoy something moist and fluffy with my afternoon coffee or tea, I always bake it myself.
I use gluten free flours, natural sweetener_ like honey or 100% maple syrup_ and of course, I am not getting any vegetable oil, artificial preservative, colorant, etc.
I also found this a great strategy to consume fewer sweets. Baking is more time consuming than just picking up something already made at the store. It works for me!
I hope you enjoy making and eating this banana bread!
