Once Upon A Thyme – Coconut Flour Banana Bread


This banana bread is made with coconut flour which is extremely high in fiber. Compared to regular flour, coconut flour contains four times the amount of fiber, more healthy fats, and is lower in carbs. Coconuts are high in manganese, a mineral which is crucial for bone health and digestion of protein. Since there’s no sugar, but a small amount of honey in this recipe, it’s imperative to use overripe bananas for sweetness. Double the recipe and freeze the banana bread slices in an airtight container for a quick but nutritious breakfast idea.
