Banana for Banana Bread

I have been trying for months to perfect an oat flour banana bread recipe. I think I finally have!

I have always lived banana bread, nothing beats the smell as it bakes and turns from batter to bread. And the oats, well those who k ow me, know I live oatmeal. Why not combine them, plus the health benefits of oats.

I make my own oat flour, by pulverizing steel cut oats in my food processor. I make small batches at a time to keep it fresh.

2 eggs
3 bananas, very ripe
1/4 c brown sugar
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 c oat flour
2tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray and loaf pan with cooking spray (sides and bottom).

Mix eggs, bananas, brown sugar, and coconut oil until well combined.

Carefully add in flour, xanthan gum and baking soda/powder, mix to combine.

Add in vanilla and mix.

Pour into loaf pan and bake 45-55 min or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Cool 2 minutes in pan then carefully remove.



Trader Joe’s Find

I went shopping recently at Trader Joe’s and found a new to me product, gluten free white corn tortillas. So what better day to use them in a dish than Cinco de Mayo. I topped these tortillas with fresh veggies and my dad’s homemade salsa. What a delicious dish! I recommend these tortillas, so go pick them up at your local Trader Joe’s!
