Grain Free Banana Pecan Bread

This past weekend I was looking for something to make and glanced over at the ripening bananas. BINGO. Banana Bread! I have always loved banana bread growing up, even the instant kind that came in a box which didn’t even require the use of bananas. (A big red flag for fake food!). Of course I know better now than to eat those “instant quick breads”  which are made up of refined flour and sugars, artificial flavors, emulsifiers and preservatives. However, I still wanted to create a bread that used minimal ingredients and was easy to make!  After quickly glancing through various recipes for some inspiration, I was able to create this easy gluten-free, grain-free, real food delicious banana bread! I used coconut flour which is naturally gluten-free and a great alternative to wheat and other refined grain flours.

Enjoy!
