Sometimes when you want a sweet treat for breakfast or you want to bring something to a brunch party that will still be 'healthyish' and make you look like a superstar . . . YUP this Banana Bread is that. Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Refined sugar free it's a winner and I might have almost eaten the whole loaf in one day with the help of my family, I'm not mad about it! Try this and let me know what you think!

Preheat oven to 350.
Mash up bananas with a fork until they are a paste
Whisk Eggs and add to bananas. Combine all wet ingredients and stir together.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients and stir to distribute salt/ baking soda & powder
Mix wet & dry ingredients until combined.
Place parchment paper in a bread loaf pan (my trick is to put a little coconut oil in pan and then place parchment on top so it sticks). Place batter in pan and put in oven for 35-45 minutes. (Mine took 35 minutes, I like mine a little bit gooey in the middle).
Option to sprinkle more nuts or chopped bananas on top before or after cooking. Also my favorite to make it sweeter is to sprinkle with sea salt flakes (or sea salt!)
This can be made with 2 flax eggs and turns out great!
I have been stirring in 1/3 cup chocolate chips into ours and making into muffins.
