Free-style, nutty banana bread

IMGP1940I’ve got a confession to make: only one of my kids actually likes this bread. As it happens, she absolutely loves it, and so do I, but the point is that if your children are not big fans of banana bread, this particular variation may not hit it big with them.

That said, if banana bread is a welcomed guest in your family, as it is in a half of mine, then by all means give it a try!

What I like particularly about this recipe, apart from the amazing main ingredients, namely bananas, eggs, almonds and coconut flour, is that you can free-style customize it by adding your favourite things, like chocolate chips, crushed nuts or dry berries.

Our pet version includes cacao nibs and cranberries.

Another great feature is olive oil which substitutes butter to provide a neat sweet for dairy intolerant kids. And it stars nut flour, a convenient gluten-free alternative to the regular one.
