Grain-Free Banana Bread

Grain-Free Banana Bread

You can make this banana bread as smaller loaves or as muffins (silicone muffin liners work extremely well) and wrap them individually to give as gifts. Just adjust the cooking time depending on the pan size.

Chopped nuts make this grain-free bread even more delicious, and we’re sure berries or chocolate would make nice additions as well.
