Shayna Banana Bread Recipe (GF & Sugar Free)

Ingredients for Banana Bread:

  • 1 cup organic freshly grind almond butter (unsalted)
  • 1 cup mashed, very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 whole organic eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine Celtic salt or sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon organic Pumpkin Pie Spice*
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of organic alcohol free vanilla extract
  • Optional dark chocolate chips (not sweetened)

Ingredients for crumble topping:

  • Organic banana chips (**home made or store bought). Very chopped
  • 1/3 cup very chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup very chopped pecans
  • To make a good crumble, make sure they are chopped into smaller pieces!
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons organic alcohol free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon organic coconut oil (melted)

*Note: You can make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice by using 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg instead.

For crumble topping:
Put chopped pecans, walnuts and banana chips into a bowl- add a touch of melted coconut oil and vanilla extra. Toss until evenly coated. Set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350F In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix until a smooth batter is formed, folding in the chocolate chips last, if desired.

Pour mixture into a non stick bread pan. Then add crumble evenly over the top!

Bake for 30-45 minutes at 350F use the old tooth pick trick! It is easy to check a cake or bread for doneness by using the toothpick test. Just stick a toothpick into the center of your banana bread, If there is wet batter still on the toothpick , it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your cake is done!

Let cool in pan- then remove & enjoy :)

**Homemade banana chips recipe:
To easily make baked banana chips, arrange a single layer of banana slices (better if ripe bananas) on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and squeeze lemon juice over them. Bake your banana slices at 175 °F (79 °C) for one hour, or cook thicker banana slices for up to 3 hours. Let your banana chips cool!
