One of the recipes I’m asked for most is a gluten-free or paleo banana bread. So I figured I may as well hop on the self-isolation banana bread train.
Banana bread is one of the recipes I remember always making with my mom when I was little. While delicious, that recipe uses the classic white flour and white sugar — two ingredients I recommend my clients stay away from.
A lot of my acne clients are dealing with digestive issues. Remember, gut health is the foundation to clear skin. It’s actually the first thing I work with my clients on in The Clear Skin Solution.
For many, avoiding grains of all kind is an important part of healing the digestive lining. And in that case, the pre-mixed gluten-free flour blends are usually off the table as they are mostly rice or sorghum-based. Instead, I have them use a combination of grain-free flours/starches in their recipes, like:
In this paleo banana bread recipe, I used both almond flour and arrowroot starch. These guys keep the bread super moist but don’t crumble apart. Enjoy a slice with my homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte or Red Velvet Latte.
