almond pulp banana bread

gluten free, grain free, dairy free and refined sugar free banana bread

We love banana bread and recently I have been trying to create the perfect gluten free, grain free, dairy free and refined sugar free loaf. As well as tasting great I was also after a texture that was light and fluffy.

We have two little boys who can be picky eaters from time to time so I am delighted to announce that this almond banana bread passed the Liam (our eldest) taste test. It was also the best way to use up the almond pulp in my freezer left over from making almond milk. This recipe uses two batches of almond milk pulp.

I have also been on the hunt for a breakfast alternative for the boys from their regular toast with honey or Vegemite. Something that is packed full of natural goodness and can fill them up with protein for their morning expeditions. This almond banana bread is the perfect addition to our breakfast rotation.
