This recipe is delicious and is the perfect alternative to traditional banana bread as it is free from white processed sugar, white flour and dairy.
 
In 2007, I decided to reduce the amount of grains and gluten I ate. As a result I did miss little treats here and there, so I started to bake my own healthy cakes and treats. 
 
Paleo recipes appealed to me more than body-building recipes while searching the net, since they only contained whole food ingredients. I have never been an advocate or fan of artificial sweeteners or just looking at the nutrition panel. To me, the ingredient listing is most important.
 
As most people know I get really excited about new ingredients and when I got some new ingredients from Banban I had to get baking.
