Banana bread is a moist, cake-like bread that is a made using ripe, mashed bananas. This is my aunts recipe that I have altered to make the perfect banana bread for my diabetic husband. I have perfected this recipe over the years and make it frequently and it always disappears fast. It’s super moist and makes a great breakfast on-the-go. When your counter is filled with overripe bananas, don’t let them go to waste. Instead, it’s time to get baking! When little brown spots start to appear on the yellow peel, it’s an indicator that the banana is becoming sweeter, and stronger in aroma. Over-ripe bananas never go to waste in our household.
This banana recipe leaves us wondering why almost all recipes for banana bread contain excessive amounts of refined sugar – bananas contain natural sugar that provides sweetness and several essential nutrients. This delicious version of banana bread is vegan and gluten free, making it the perfect guilt-free treat. It’s also made using a mixture of almond meal and buckwheat flour – creating a nutty and full flavor that deliciously compliments the banana.
