Brown Butter Banana Bread made with Coconut Flour and Honey




Today, I finally got out my Canon to take a real photo. As it turns out, I am still in need of a crash course on photography in general, not to mention food styling! The recipes are still pretty quality, though. I can vouch for that! This one especially. It tastes very similar to banana bread made with all purpose flour and brown sugar. To me, that is a huge success. It's moist and extra delicious with some grass fed butter slathered on top.

Brown Butter Banana Bread
1 loaf

1 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 very ripe bananas
4 eggs
6 tbs butter, browned in a sauté pan
4 tbs honey
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of ginger and cloves if you like

- Preheat your oven to 300 and line a loaf pan with greased parchment paper (I actually ran out and used well greased foil as a liner and it worked just fine!)
- Combine the first three ingredients in a small bowl. Mash the bananas, add in the butter and honey to incorporate and whisking constantly, add in the eggs (just in case your butter is still a little warm, you don't want to scramble the eggs.) Toss in the spices and the dry ingredients to stir until smooth. Pour into the pan and bake for about an hour and fifteen minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before removing from the pan for at least ten minutes.

  1. The phrase "grass fed butter" made me smile...I imagined a lovely little flock of butters, grazing happily on a sun-drenched hillside in northern Vermont.

    Hope you're adjusting to life in NYC! My cousin-in-law and his wife moved there from Idaho ~4 years ago, and after getting kicked in the face (proverbially) a few times and getting back up again, they have grown to love it...
