Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11).
This portion of the Lord’s prayer is a wonderful reminder to ask and praise God for His perfect provision. I celebrate the goodness of our Lord with this sweet, nutty, flavorful, moist cake labeled as bread. You will be amazed with the taste of this bread that is free of refined sugar, gluten, and dairy. I’m dancing in celebration already!
Enjoy this recipe for breakfast, a snack, or even as dessert (delicious with a dollop of coconut yogurt on top). You can’t go wrong with this banana nut bread or the recipe. My results with my recipe are consistently delicious every time. (I love consistent results.)
Are you ready for today’s tasty star of sweetness?
This is an informative article showing 7 Wonderful Benefits of Banana (and ideas for how to include the fruit in your daily diet).
When disease hits, God taps you on the noggin and says, “Hello?” “Wake Up!” “Take Notice! I am doing a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:19)
That verse has consumed my mind lately. (What is God up to?) Also, the word relevant keeps cropping up somewhere along each day. I don’t know what it all means, but I’ll let you know as soon as I figure it out. What does that have to do with banana bread? Not sure of that either, exactly, except that this new banana bread thing has added a new joy to my eating style.
Learning to cook again in a different way – a healthier way – is hard at first. If you are struggling to change to a healthier eating style, there are now no worries about healthy sweets! You can enjoy many health boosting treats that taste deliciously sweet with no refined sugars, gluten, or dairy (if that’s an issue for you). Eating the right sweet foods no longer comes with a “don’t touch!” warning label (and easy with an end to sugar addiction). You don’t have to feel guilty indulging in unhealthy treats because replacing them with healthy options is very easy with the right recipes.
I was shocked by how tasty this banana bread was when I replaced the flour in Dani Spees’ original Best Healthy Banana Bread recipe with my Gluten-Free Flour Blend – Soft and Fluffy!
You could also use Trim Healthy Mama Gluten-Free Flour Blend* if you are limited on time. I replaced the sweetener in Dani’s recipe with Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet*, and I added chopped fresh pecans to the top of my loaf before baking. Yummy!
I can tell this will be a regular around my house when we have visitors. It tastes as good as any “regular” banana bread like I made before restoring my temple. Here is the printable recipe with my changes for your convenience.
