Who doesn't love a good banana bread? Well this one is one you are sure to enjoy with a nice cup of coffee or as an alternative breakfast or snack option for your or the children.
Free from gluten, dairy and refined sugars this yummy banana bread is sweetened with just ripe bananas and a tiny bit of maple syrup meaning you can enjoy it without worrying about being naughty! And who doesn't love a righteous treat which you can fully enjoy but without guilt?!

Banana Bread
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 ripe bananas
6 eggs
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1/4 cup of coconut oil (melted)
1/ tbsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt

Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a bowl sift the coconut flour and add in the salt and baking powder.
In a blender (I used my nutribullet) blend the bananas, vanilla extract, maple syrup and eggs until smooth.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until well combined.
Add the melted coconut oil and mix to incorporate.
Pour into a well greased loaf tin and bake for 45-60 minutes checking every 5 minutes after 45 minutes as cooking times will vary depending on your oven. A skewer should come out clean from the centre of the tin.
Remove from oven and cool before serving.
