Banana Nut Butter Bread

This recipe shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to put together & makes 4 small loaves which SHOULD last you quite some time!  You can always freeze one or two of the loaves.  WARNING – this recipe is not super sweet so I paired it with organic raw honey.  This bread makes a great Sunday morning breakfast, muffins for the week or just something different for your recipe book.

1 cup organic peanut butter or almond butter (I used peanut butter this loaf)
1 cup coconut flour OR almond flour (I used coconut flour)
2 large or 3 small brown, spotty bananas
2 eggs
1 t aluminum free baking powder
1 t aluminum free baking soda
1/4 cup or so of raw coconut
Big sprinkle of cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 F.

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients & mix untl the bananas are no longer visible chunks.  Pour the batter into the oiled loaf pan (or muffin tin).

Bake for approx 30-40 min, until the center is done.  Let the bread cool before removing from the pan.
