Healthy Paleo Banana Bread

Banana Bread is probably one of my all-time FAVORITE desserts, as well as a favorite among all of my family & friends.  However, it’s often filled with dairy and loads of unnecessary processed ingredients, which is why we think of it as a sugary treat rather than a nutritious snack.

Because I love it sooo much, I sought out to give it a healthier twist, and after numerous trials, I created a (might I add: DELICIOUS) recipe without any added sugar or junk, to make this dessert into a healthy snack!

Personally, I do not follow any specific dietary restrictions other than no dairy (because I’m lactose intolerant), but I do always try to eat foods that fuel me for my day and makes me feel

This recipe is also friendly with most allergens, so that all of you can enjoy!  This loaf is free of gluten, dairy, processed sugar, and made with all the most natural and delicious ingredients!

I love to eat a slice in the morning, for breakfast, snack on some throughout the day, or of course as dessert! It’s great for curbing those sweet tooth cravings that always tend to kick in between lunch and dinner, and best part?? It had NO added sugar!

Enjoy this recipe, and if you make it, don’t forget to tag me @bitesbyhay and use the hashtag #bitesbyhay so I can see!

Ingredients

Wet:

2 large bananas mashed

2 eggs*

1/4 cup egg whites**

1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups almond flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 sliced banana

slivered almonds

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In two separate bowls, combine the wet and dry ingredients, then pour one into the other and fold.

Transfer the mixture into a non-stick baking tin (I used 8.5” x 4.5”) and add the sliced banana and slivered almonds for toppings, or feel free to add any other toppings you would like.

Bake at 350F for ~35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy!
