paleo vegan tahini [nut-free] banana bread

dsc_1015.jpg BANANA BREAD. can it get any more classic? i’ve been wanting to create my own banana bread recipe for a while, & i finally did it!  it’s free of all the following: gluten, grains, dairy, soy, nuts, refined sugar.  when it came out of the oven, i just had to sample it before i even took these photos, & trust me when i say this — my BANANA BREAD has been LANDED. it’s fluffy, dense, moist, full of banana flavor, & completely heavenly. let’s get to it!

banana bread is just it. it’s amazing by itself; it’s amazing spread with ghee or nut butter, crumbled into a yogurt parfait, made into french toast… the possibilities!! they are endless!! you can take it above & beyond or simply have a slice of it, and on it’s own, it’s beyond good.

now let’s make it!!

start by sifting the 3 flours together — the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour.  the ratio 3:2:1 is a perfect flour substitute; on their own, they don’t exactly allow the right rise, fluff, or texture for a bread.  so… MAKE SURE THAT YOU USE THE COMBINATION + SIFT THEM TOGETHER!  set the flour combination aside.

mash the bananas, 3-4 [depending on size] to get to ~ 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas.  to the bananas, mix melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, tahini, vanilla extract, yogurt + water, & flaxseed.  mix those until they are combined!

take your pre-sifted flours, and add baking soda to the flour mixture.  add the flour + baking soda to the rest of the ingredients, & stir to combine!

pour batter into oiled/parchment-lined bread pans.  i used 2 small bread pans & split the batter evenly, but you can easily make 1 large loaf; just bake for longer time!

bake the 2 small loaves for ~40-45 minutes on 350F, or until a toothpick comes out clean!  SLICE + ENJOY~!

*once cooled, i sliced one loaf & put it directly into the freezer in an air sealed bag.  this way, later on when the first loaf is gone, i can take out one slice at a time whenever i want it, without having to defrost + refreeze the entire loaf!*

spread ghee or nut butter on your slice, or dip it in an egg and fry up some french toast; even throw a slice into a yogurt bowl… your own SLICE OF HEAVEN AWAITS!
