Ansley’s almond flour banana bread

My six year old granddaughter Ansley loves to cook.  Back when her dad and the rest of my kids were younger, I was still a 350lb food addict who knew zero about nutrition.  I feel like I am getting a do-over in the healthy department with her.  She is really developing a love for cooking.  We did our own tweak of a banana bread recipe my best friend Tammy found.  We added a few things and took out a few and this is the result!  This is the first loaf of bread  Ansley made!  No sugar or wheat products used! Low carb and healthy!

Here is the recipe:

1/2 cups Kerrygold or any grass-fed butter at room temperature

2 eggs at room temperature

1 cup of Stevia or Splenda

3 medium bananas mashed

2 cups of almond flour

1.5 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 cup ground flax seed

1 cup of walnuts (optional)

Ansley mixing the butter and eggs and Stevia

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to  350 degrees and grease and flour a bread pan.

In a bowl mix the eggs, butter, and Stevia until smooth and creamy.

Add the mashed bananas and stir together.

Add all the other ingredients except for the walnuts  and mix  together well.

Fold in the walnuts

Pour the mixture into the bread pan and bake for 60-70 minutes until golden brown and the center is dry to a toothpick.  Ovens will vary.  Let cool for 5 minutes then remove from pan and place on a plate to cool.

Enjoy!

My Ansley had a blast making this and it has become a weekly favorite in our house!  Loaded with protein and fiber and nutrients and very low in carbohydrates and sugar!

I am also a former 350lb food addict who is passionate about healthy living. I am a firm believer in the science and research that proves that sugar fake toxic "Frankenfoods" and excess carbs are the root of most of the illness we see today. Metabolic syndrome is taking over as the leading cause of preventable death in this country. I believe we all need a balanced lifestyle that includes eating well and eating lots of plants and lean proteins as well as moving our bodies and keeping our minds and hearts strong. I also believe in having good quality gut health supplements to provide what our bodies need that we just do not get due to environment and dietary reasons. I truly believe we are raising a generation of kids addicted to sugar and setting them up for a lifetime of disease and advocate limiting sugar and fake processed food consumption in children.
