Banana Bread is an all time favorite but is usually made with refined flours and sugars. This healthier version uses coconut flour and almond flour and natural sweeteners.
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup almond flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon pure stevia (like Kal brand), if desired
3 very ripe bananas
1 tablespoon Grade B maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
8 pitted dates
12 free range, organic eggs
½ cup melted coconut oil
In a large bowl, mix flours, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and stevia (if using) and set aside. Put all of the remaining ingredients, except coconut oil, in a VitaMix and blend on low-med speed until well mixed (do not mix on high speed as it will heat up the mixture). Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir to incorporate. Add coconut oil and mix well.
Grease two loaf pans (use stoneware or glass – no Teflon) with coconut oil and dust with coconut flour. Add batter equally between the two loaf pans.
Bake at 350 for about 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
