Then there are recipes like this one, where everything is just a little too moist, a little too soft, despite attempting to bake them longer. I suspect one culprit may be that I adapted this paleo recipe by substituting Splenda for the honey, but I was so concerned I'd throw off that moisture balance that I added milk. Completely unnecessary.
Not to mention that bananas are so high in carbs and sugar, it isn't like this recipe ends up being very low-carb the way that many coconut flour recipes do. Ah well. It wasn't awful, and I thought the coconut on top was tasty too.
"Primal" Coconut Flour Banana Bread(original recipe from SparkPeople, my notes in parentheses)
- 2-3 ripe, mashed bananas (I used 3, should have gone with 2.5)
1/3 c butter, melted
2 tbsp honey (I used brown sugar splenda and added a bit of milk)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup nuts (optional)
DirectionsCombine bananas and melted butter. Mix well. Add eggs, [honey], and vanilla and whisk until eggs are combined.
In separate bowl stir together dry ingredients. Add to wet ingredients. Add nuts if using and stir in.
Transfer batter to greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. (I made muffins and baked 23 minutes.)
Serving Size: makes 1 loaf (or 16 muffins)
