Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 3 bananas yields 8 nice pieces

Ingredients

  • 3 bananas, smashed
  • depends on how many bananas used coconut flour
  • liberal amount chia seeds
  • 3 eggs, raw
  • roughly 2 tablespoons ghee, slightly melted
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, ground
  • vanilla extract, to taste
  • coriander to taste, ground
  • a pinch or two of salt

This was all experimental but worked out well

  1. I started with three very ripe bananas--peel was black. I smashed them in a large mixing bowl and then added coconut flour until the mixture was a bit on the dry side but mixable. Then I added three eggs. I may not have needed that many eggs but that's what I used. After mixing in eggs, mixture was a bit overly wet so I added some more flour to make it a little dryer than cake batter. I then added a liberal amount of chia seeds to add nutrients but also to guarantee the bread wouldn't be crumbly. Then I added the vanilla and spices. Feel free to use whichever spices you prefer.
  2. I added no sugar or any other sweetener because the mixture was already thoroughly sweet enough from the bananas alone. Why anyone adds sugar to banana bread, I don't know. Coconut flour may have its own sweetness also, unlike regular wheat flour.
  3. The cooking time will depend on how much you make. If you use more bananas you will need more flour and eggs etc. which will take longer to cook. Usually I go by smell; if you can smell it baking, it's time to at least check to see if it's done baking (poke bread with a butter knife. If it comes out clean, it's done). I think I cooked my bread for about an hour.
  4. Don't forget to grease and flour your baking pan before putting in bread mixture! I used butter to grease my ceramic pan (glass would work fine I'm sure) and floured it with the coconut flour. The bread came out of the pan just fine.
  5. This bread has a light taste, not overpowering. It's somewhat dense. It's also very moist, which I like. It would probably be good with honey or almond butter. It's quite good on its own too.
