Spiced Banana Bread {Paleo}

Apparently the most googled baking phrase during the quarantine is “how to make banana bread” and I ironically made paleo banana bread today without even knowing that!  I’m here to share the recipe with you in case that’s what you’re trying to figure out during your time at home! I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite primal cookbooks: Primal Cravings.  If you like the texture, feel free to adapt the recipe to make whatever flavor you like!
Spiced Banana Bread
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
2 mashed, ripe bananas
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
Preheat oven to 325F, and line small loaf pan with parchment paper.  Combine the wet ingredients.  In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and pour batter into loaf pan. Bake until the edges are golden and middle is cooked through, which is about an hour.  Let it cool in the pan before removing.

Strawberry Banana Breakfast Bowl

We have all probably heard about acai bowls at some point in our life, and they are super tasty!  However, acai is not the most convenient ingredient to get ahold of.  The concept of a smoothie in a bowl topped with goodness is not one that must be reserved for acai.  This is the same concept with more readily gained ingredients.  Drink it through a straw or eat it with a spoon, the power is in your hands.
Strawberry Banana Breakfast Bowl
1/2 frozen banana
4 frozen organic strawberries (part of the dirty dozen!)
1/2 an avocado
1 heaping Tbsp of gelatin (Great Lakes is the brand I use)
1 tsp maca (for hormone balance)
almond milk
4 walnuts, chopped
Place the banana, berries, gelatin, avocado, and maca in the blender and cover the ingredients in almond milk or coconut milk until you can see bits and pieces peaking above the milk level.  Blend until smooth.  Top with chopped nuts and eat like a bowl of cereal!  But way healthier and more homemade.
