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!
ohhhhh my goodness. the lemon blueberry combination. i almost have NO words for the heaven that it is… but i’ll try and give you an idea of how legit incredible this bread is. i first thought of this idea becuase i wanted to make something that has a more vibrant flavor than the typical breads — banana, zucchini, pumpkin. those are all delish in a warm + comforting way, and i wanted this new bread to be brighter & lighter. i seriously chose this flavor combination as my effort to WILL spring into action. enter: LEMON.

OKAY. it’s here!! this will be the first bread recipe that i’ve tested & successfully created for my blog! i’ve been wanting to make something like a banana bread, but without the bananas; which would make it just bread. but i didn’t want to make just bread! [shouts to @aeengels12 for the inspiration for a sweet potato based bread – this one’s for yaaa.] i wanted the flavor to be neutral in terms of not having fruit or cinnamon or any nut butter, & the reason for that was because i wanted to be able to put whatever toppings on it without clashing or overpowering any flavs!
one of the main reasons i wanted it to be neutral was becuase i recently discovered a new type of jam [just fruit preserves, no sugar] & immediately knew i needed a base for a THROWBACK CONCEPT. i used to eat this legitimately every single day for lunch in high school….can you guess? PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY, ANYONE? except that peanut butter isn’t paleo & jelly is sugar-filled, SO… now that i’ve discovered that all other nut butters are heavenly in their own regard and this new raspberry fruit spread from [@TRADERJOES], i’m determined to bring back PB&J.
i tested it with my family + a few others [@chelsboyle, @jozlow], & after batch 2 — which turned out to be just what i was hoping to create — it’s ready for you!
