Gluten and Sugar Free Banana Bread

4 May

banana-breadNow that its coming into winter in our part of the world – its time to get baking!

Time to crank up the oven & start enjoying the comfort foods of winter.

There is nothing better than Banana Bread warm straight from the oven smeared with homemade butter & a little chia & raspberry jam – its worth braving the cold just to be able to enjoy this yummy bread.

The Bread is dense & super moist, it has the texture of a heavy banana cake, but isn’t too sweet – try it you will like it 🙂

This Banana bread recipe is super easy & can easily be Vegan adapted by swapping the honey for 2 t stevia or 3 T coconut sugar & the eggs for an additional 3T ground chia seeds & 9T of water.

This recipe can be used as your basis for all sorts of sweet bread experiments, we have added chocolate chips & raspberries to ours, made a blue berry version & made a vegan version using pineapple juice instead of water for our egg replacement for a tropical bread. The sky is the limit so get experimenting & have some fun in the kitchen!
