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)
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.
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!
