Simply Delicious Paleo Banana Bread

I am always looking for new baking recipes so that I can satisfy my sweet tooth! This recipe is simple, delicious and does not cost very much. Almond flour has become a staple in my diet as the paleo diet does not contain any wheat flour. This bread is so moist because of the eggs, oil and honey it is great for your morning breakfast or in the evening as a dessert with a nice cup of tea! The oil really gives the bread a moist texture. I use grapeseed oil by President’s Choice. The MOST IMPORTANT part of this recipe is making sure you mix the egg whites until you form stiff peaks. Check out this video on how to ensure you have the right consistency. 

This banana bread is best when it sits overnight as the bread becomes thick and easy to eat. 
Try it out…. you will not be disappointed!
