Almond Flour Banana Bread, Lower Carb, Gluten Free, Wheat Free
Hi my name is Lisa.
Welcome to HomeMade Healthy.
Today we’re going to make banana bread
with almond flour.
So this is really great for those gluten free diets, low carb diets.
It’s a good way to get something sweet without the carbs.
So what we’re going to do is we’re gonna break
3 cage-free eggs into the mixer.
I gotta tell you, I love my stand mixer. It’s the
best. It makes whipping really easy.
Well, you don’t want to do that.
No harm no foul.
Okay, now we put our whipping attachment on
and you’re just gonna beat these for a
couple minutes to get them frothy.
Okay next, turn off the mixer Lisa.
Next we’re going to add in are mashed
So what I like to do is,
as bananas get brown and we don’t eat them all,
I take the skin off and put
them in the freezer.
Then whenever I’m ready to make a recipe,
I just take about and let them thaw.
You just want to mash them up
until they’re kind of soupy.
They’ll get mixed in really well.
You poor that right in.
Now bananas are naturally sweet.
We won’t need to add a whole lot sweetener
with this recipe.
So we’re gonna add the rest of the
Now coconut oil,
as it gets cold hardens. So you wanna make
sure your eggs are at room temperature or
you can warm up your coconut oil.
My eggs are at room temperature.
So we’re gonna add our 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
1 tablespoon of vanilla.
1/8 of a teaspoon of Kal stevia.
This is the stevia I use.
It’s really good.
It’s not bitter.
People who aren’t on a low carb diet or
aren’t on a Paleolithic diet don’t
even know that it doesn’t real sugar.
Okay so we’re gonna put all that in and
we’re just gonna,
oh, but don’t forget or sour cream.
1/3 of a cup of sour cream.
We’re just gonna mix this until its mixed well.
Then we’ll just add in the other ingredients.
Nothing too fancy with this.
Just make sure it gets nice and incorporated
before we start adding in the dry ingredients.
That’s pretty good.
Okay next we’re going to add
a half a teaspoon of Himalayan salt and
1 tablespoon of baking powder.
2 cups of almond flour.
I use Honeyville Farms.
This 5 pound bag is like thirty five dollars.
Which is much cheaper than if you try to
buy at the grocery store or one
of the specialty stores.
So we’re just gonna put in
our 2 cups of almond flour.
We’re just gonna mix it
slow it first to get it all incorporated.
Then we will speed up a little bit.
Now I like to scrape down the sides.
When you work with a mixer you know you
just don’t have to do that sometimes.
Then I’m gonna add in, you can use walnuts,
I really like I roasted salted pecans.
So I’ve chopped up some of those.
About a half a cup. I’m gonna add those and in.
Then mix it one last time.
Then we’ll be ready to go in the oven.
I have an 8 by 4 loaf pan.
I find in the smaller size loaf pans
it doesn’t rise as much as traditional bread.
So it makes it feel a little bit taller
when it’s a smaller pan.
Alright it is ready to go in the oven.
Those banana bits wanna stick.
Here’s what it looks like.
Yum! Smells good! (sing songy)
Okay. just gonna pour it in the pan.
This is going to take about 45 minutes
to an hour in the oven.
Depending on how fast your oven cooks.
Just check on it. When you enter
a toothpick or a knife
in the middle of it and it comes
out clean then it’s ready.
You wanna preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Alright let’s get the last bit.
This stuff is so good you
don’t wanna waste any of it.
And the nice thing with
these recipes is that with
this one you could use to make
Instead of putting it in loaf pan right now you
could could just heat up the griddle.
Or heat up a cast iron skillet and
make some pancakes with these.
They would be good.
But this is my favorite banana bread recipe.
Okay so once you have it in the pan,
you got your oven preheated, you’re gonna
put it in for 45 minutes.
It’s been about 45 minutes since we
put the banana bread in
and it looks beautiful.
I can’t believe that doesn’t have any grain.
Awesome. Okay you’re supposed to let it
by now you guys know I’m not very patient.
I can’t wait.
Look at that.
I love banana bread.
Alright we’re gonna take a
little piece off the edge here and blow on it.
So I don’t burn my tounge.
Mmmm. It’s just like mom made.
Slather some butter on that.
