The bread is super simple to make. It only has a few ingredients and can be put together in just minutes. It tastes great right out of the oven and also is wonderful the next day and beyond.Use ripe bananas for sweetness

Start by mashing some very ripe bananas.  Using ripe bananas means that you don’t have to add a lot of sugar, or even honey or maple syrup, since the bananas are already sweet. I used a potato masher and just went to town on them.batter for banana bread recipe

7 eggs get added along with your choice of oil.  This recipe works with coconut oil, too, but I used clarified butter since I had some on hand and I wanted a richer taste than the coconut oil has. A bit of pure vanilla extract adds to the flavor too.

The coconut flour, sea salt and baking soda get whisked together and then added to the banana mixture. Then be patient for about five minutes to give the coconut flour a chance to thicken.

(The batter will look watery at first but don’t add more coconut flour. It will thicken as it sits.  Too much flour and the bread will be dry!)Paleo banana bread ready to cook

The last step is to mix in the chopped walnuts for a bit of crunch and pour it into a loaf pan.Loaf of gluten free banana bread
