Even though you would think banana bread would have to actually contain bread, this Free People recipe is for gluten and grain-free banana bread. This alternative is ideal for those with dietary restrictions as well as those jumping on the bandwagon.
The skillet banana bread recipe calls for overly ripe bananas and natural sweetener like agave nectar, honey or maple syrup. Instead of traditional flour, the grain-free banana bread uses coconut flour. You can also add your own healthy ingredients like cocoa nibs, coconut flakes or nuts.
While this recipe is great for those avoiding gluten, other popular dietary restrictions are not addressed. For example, this is not a vegan recipe as it contains eggs and potentially honey. People with nut allergies also should avoid it.
