Think, Read, Cook

Because no single way of eating works for everybody.

The Thing from the Cave… Is Delicious


Looks like ordinary banana bread, doesn’t it? Moist, delicious banana bread, in two flavours – cinnamon, and double chocolate with chips. Okay, the photo could be better.. but don’t you think these are excellent examples of what a superior kind of ordinary banana bread is like?

Heh-heh-heh. Shows how much you know.

This banana bread is made entirely without grains. No wheat, spelt, kamut, rice, corn, rye, barley. Not only that, but there’s no sugar, no honey, no sweetening of any kind – not even Icky Sugar Substitutes. And I have to say, it’s the best banana bread I’ve ever tasted. My husband, and even my son who’s not too keen on bananas, say the same.

This recipe for Paleo Banana Bread comes from The Civilized Caveman, otherwise known as George, whose delicious recipes and cheerful personality make his blog a delight to follow. (No, I don’t know the guy, but click on this link, visit his site, and you’ll feel as though he’s an old friend.)

A note of caution: the banana bread is made with nut butter, so if you’re nut-allergic, stay away from it. Otherwise, it’s bananas and coconut flour and eggs, and not much else. It’s dead easy to whip up in the food processor, and full of nutrition – unlike regular banana bread. If you don’t have a 9×5-inch loaf pan, split the batter between two smaller pans; the first time I made this, I put the lot into an 8.5×4.5-inch pan, and the middle didn’t cook. But the edges were so delicious that I was spurred on to try again.

Go for it – you won’t miss the grains, or the sugar.
