While I was pregnant I had a little bit of a love affair with bananas and peanut butter, okay, a lot of bit of a love affair. (sometimes twice a day)
Banana’s are basically a staple fruit in our house. They are pretty cheap and an easy grab and go fruit filled with Potassium. But if you’re anything like me there is usually two or three stray bananas that haven’t quite made it to someone’s stomach yet; and they start to look not so pretty. Well, that’s what I had going on this week. So I decided to make some banana bread.
This Paleo Banana Bread is the perfect healthy start to a day and works great along side any latte. 🙂 You could add a little flare to this bread by adding some toasted coconut. Enjoy!
