It’s all about almond this month! And for those of you who are into gluten-free food, Gen’s Almond Flour Banana Bread recipe is one to look out for.
It’s banana bread (my greatest obsession!) and it’s made with almond meal instead of the usual wheaty-type of flour. Almond meal! I mean, it’s not even something I would think about in a banana bread. So again, Gen has opened up my eyes to the various possibilities of food that I don’t usually think of.
And that is why I love this challenge. And her. For being such a nut! I mean she did not even use butter in her recipe. How? And I mean her being a nut in a good way, of course.
There’s only 1 problem about her post though. She did not leave any pictures! Urrrrghhhh! It pains me because I’m dying to see how her almond meal banana bread turned out. I mean, is it a little brownish? Is there a little crack on the top? Can you see the “little black strings” you’d see in a typical banana by-product?
But now, all I know is this:
It’s easy and the prep is ridiculously quick – throw everything into the blender, mix, transfer to pan, bake. Done. Okay, I’m sold. And it tastes soooo good! If almonds, or bananas, or both, are your vibe, do this. Try it, enjoy it and feel zero guilt
But I’ve got imagination and just thinking about the mixing, the baking and the aroma from the baking filling my house with that one bite on a soft piece of the bread is enough to make me drool and bake myself some!
