Delicious primal banana bread

This recipe is super easy to prepare and is seriously yummy and guilt-free. You don’t find those three adjectives together in the same sentence very often.  I baked these little tea time goodies for the first time today and they went down a treat with the family. I would think that they would work pretty well in the kiddie’s lunch boxes too from the way my two girls devoured them.

They took only 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake. So it was only 30 minutes from start to finish. You can find the non-standard ingredients at your local health store, Dischem or Wellness Warehouse.

  1. Hmm did our primal ancestors really have access to ovens, coconut oil and bicarbonate of soda…? 😉

    • Nope they didn’t, but I am just trying to help myself and others to do what we can to hunt and gather in our modern world. If our good choices outweigh the poor ones we stand a greater chance of being healthy.

  2. Delicious!! Just made them with apple and dried blueberries and they turned out fab. Thanks nix
