Banana Pecan Bread

bananabread1

What do you do when the high for the day is a whopping 22 degrees, the roads are covered in ice and you have been told by the local authorities to just stay home?

Why you bake, of course!

As we were getting moving this morning, my husband saw me grabbing the three very ripe bananas we had left in our counter dish…immediately he says “Don’t throw those away! Make banana bread!!”

Little did he know that is exactly what I had in mind.

I love that this recipe makes a full loaf.

Most gluten-free recipe’s, especially the grain-free kind, call for a smaller loaf pan. Not this one! For this one you want a traditional 9x5x3 loaf.

The bake time was a little long but the end result was a beautiful, golden, sweet loaf of bread.

With our annual cleanse beginning on Monday, I won’t be doing a lot of baking over the months ahead.

Even so, this nice warm treat is really the perfect way to begin your new year. High protein, high fiber, no refined sugars.

Go for it!
