Paleo Banana Bread

chocolate-chip-banana-bread

I’ve been trying various grain free banana bread recipes to try to find the perfect one and I think I’ve finally found it. This is a bit of a mix of various recipes I’ve found online, it is moist, delicious and filling. If you add chocolate it is a little treat but it is just as delicious with nuts instead of chocolate and it can be made leaving out the honey and the bananas sweeten it nicely, it is just a little more decandent with the honey.
