It's the perfect day for me to post this delicious gluten free and refined sugar free banana bread recipe from Dr. Axe. My husband was surprised when I told him there was no flour, sugar, or oil in this recipe. It's really that delicious! It's not vegan since it uses honey and eggs, but if you go to Dr. Axe's original recipe and read the comments, people offer some great suggestions for substitutions.
I divided the batter between 2 loaf pans, but if you want a taller loaf, just use one pan and cook it longer.
And just for fun, here's a link to a foodie holiday calendar so you can keep track.
Dr Axe's Banana Bread (Gluten Free / Refined Sugar Free / Oil Free)
Adapted from Dr. Axe
1 -2 loaves
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup cashew (or other non-dairy) milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon pink salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan (or 2) and line with parchment. I used coconut oil for this.
In a bowl, combine eggs, banana, honey, syrup, milk, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
Combine the wet with the dry and stir well. I added walnuts at this point.
Place the batter in the pan(s) and bake for 20-30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Bake longer if using only 1 pan. Allow to cool before serving. I thought it tasted even better the next day.
