So while I’m still on this bread kick…
The other night I sent out a mass text imploring my family and friends to help me figure out something creative to do with the bunch of mushy bananas sitting on my kitchen counter. I almost threw my phone into the wall when every single one of them came back with, “Banana Bread!” I mean, no sh*t, you guys. No help at all. But I still love you.
I kinda went middle ground on the idea for this recipe but started adding some random stuff and before I knew it I had a batter chock full of spicy, sweet, fragrant goodies. At the very least, the smell of this baby in the oven was worth it even if the bread itself had been terrible. But Holy Crap, you guys. I still can’t decide if it’s more sweet or savory, but who the hell cares? Put some butter and honey on this biyatch and go to town!
1/2 c Coconut Flour
1/2 c Ground Flax
1 t Salt
1 t Baking Soda
1 T Curry Powder
1 t Cumin
2 t Cinnamon
4 Really Ripe Bananas
1/2 c Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/2 c Pine Nuts
Whisk the dry ingredients together. Mash the bananas and beat in the eggs. Add the dry ingredients bit by but to the wet ingredients until well blended. Fold in the coconut and pine nuts. If you so desire, add 1/2 c Raisins as well…I reallyreallyreally wanted to but didn’t have any on hand.
Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
