Oh how I love the site of overripe bananas! Overripe bananas taste amazing in smoothies, or this “milkshake”. I also love them in any kind of baked good. Now with this delicious grain-free banana bread, I’m sure we will be buying bananas by the bundle, just waiting for them to get dark spots.

Tip: If you have bananas that are overripe and you don’t have time to make banana bread, you can mash them up, then freeze for later. Just defrost before using and they will bake up beautifully!

This banana bread is everything banana bread should be. It is lightly sweet and moist. It is also packed with protein from all the eggs and coconut flour. It makes a delicious breakfast or snack! My 2-year-old asks for “nana cake?” all the time. I’m happy he thinks it is good enough to be considered cake. Another great thing about banana bread is you can mix in a lot of different things to spice it up. I personally love the chocolate chip/walnut combination. This is another one of those recipes that tastes so good, people are honestly shocked is both gluten and grain-free.
