Banana bread is a staple in our house. We get bananas free from our church’s food ministry so I always have an abundance. My favorite banana bread recipes are Organic Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Soaked Banana Bread. Or, at least they were…
Now that we are grain free (at least for January) I needed a grain-free alternative. I wasn’t about to waste overripe bananas. I found a grain-free banana bread recipe over at my friend Kristen from Rethink Simple’s blog that is amazing! I asked her if it would be ok to modify it for my blog and she said yes! Yay! Now there’s a new banana bread in town!
I’ve made this grain-free banana bread 6 times in the last week-and-a-half. I kid you not! I am serious about getting a recipe perfect! I used Kristen’s base recipe for things like flour, eggs and baking powder amounts but revamped it because I wanted to add some ingredients.
When working with coconut flour you have to make sure you have enough liquid. Coconut flour is very fibrous and quickly absorbs the liquid that is added to it. If you don’t add enough, you will have a very grainy and rather unpleasant end result.
I’ve been obsessed with adding gelatin to everything lately! I like to use Gelatin Hydrolysate for recipes that don’t need to be “gelled”. It adds nutrients to whatever it’s added to. You’ll see it pop up in many of my more recent recipes.
As always, there are links within the recipe itself to where you can easily purchase the ingredients.
This Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is my new favorite recipe! It is very moist and not overly sweet. I have to make two loaves for it to last into the next day with my hungry crew!
Be nourished. Be happy.
