Yesterday I noticed that there were 3 very dark brown bananas sitting in my fruit bowl at home. I love banana bread, however, after moving my diet away from grains, namely wheat/gluten as well as changing to not eating dairy products, traditional banana bread didn’t really fit well into this diet.


So, I decided to make an innate diet, grain free, dairy free banana bread!banana bread
