The Dairy Free Gluten Free Banana Bread that doesn’t taste DF GF!
Each time I make this people can’t believe this is dairy free and gluten free!
One time I forgot to “warn” the people I was serving what looked like “normal” banana bread that it was actually dairy and gluten free. They didn’t even notice the difference! That’s how good this is!
A word of caution… coconut flour has lots of good fiber in it. Yes, there is such thing as too much of a good thing. Drink lots of water and start out with just one or two pieces of bread the first day.
Oh, these can be made into muffins too!
