The GOOD Stuff!!

Last night I was home and it occurred to me that I haven’t baked in a very long time. So I figured I would put my apron on and surprise my husband. I was debating between brownies and blueberry banana bread. Of course I could not decide so I went with both! 🙂

As much as these may look unhealthy they are 100% healthy and guilt free. YAY!! After filling my house with the amazing smell of baked blueberry banana bread and brownies and having them approved by my mom and husband, I knew I had to share. I hope you enjoy these yummy treats!!

All the ingredients I used were organic. Remember always have fun especially when baking yummy goodness and feel free to make any substitutions you would like!!

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 3 eggs (organic free range)
  • 2 tbs spiced rum (regular rum with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg)
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or raw honey)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Optional Topping:

  • 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate smaller bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients.
  4. Slowly add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix with a hand mixer.
  5. Fold in your blueberries with a silicone spatula. Be careful not to over mix and break your blueberries
  6. Spray your pan with coconut oil
  7. Pour your batter into the loaf pan and distribute evenly.
  8. Sprinkle your combined coconut sugar and cinnamon topping over the top of your bread. (This step is optional)
  9. Bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown and a knife or toothpick comes out cleanly when inserted into the center of your loaf.
  10. Let loaf cool for about 10 to 15 minutes unless you are like me and cannot wait to try a piece!
  11. Once your loaf has cooled down or once you are ready to eat it, slice it and share!
