Here is my next recipe recommendation, though I’m cheating a little cause I didn’t just discover this. But I did find it and have made it and wanted to review it.
You can find the recipe here, on the Civilised Caveman website. Its the baby of George, my favourite caveman, even if he is sporting a horrible beard right now (beards are NOT sexy, fellas… not EVER). George has so many amazing recipes and his food photography certainly does get the saliva glands going. Whenever I am looking for a ‘paleo version’ of anything, I head for George’s site first. He’s pretty rock-solid in terms of providing easy, tasty, realistic Paleo recipes. Speaking of…
This recipe is such a ‘go to’ in our household. I loved Banana Cake pre-Paleo and so when I found myself with a few very ripe banana’s I went looking for a Paleo version.
I’ve tried a couple of different ones, I’ll be honest there is another one that’s almost as good, but this one is definitely my favourite. Its a perfect snack food and can become a dessert also, if you’re so inclined (which we frequently are.)
So making this bread is super, super simple. Its essentially two steps – blend your ‘wet’ ingredients, add your dry ingredients. Even I can manage two steps! Then bake.
The bread that you end up with is moist, flavoursome and sturdy. The loaf is compact (about 23 x 7 x 5 cm’s) but that helps me with portion control! The other brilliant thing about it is that with a simple addition (cocoa) you can have chocolate banana bread. Another variation we often do is that instead of the loaf tin, I spoon the batter into a muffin tray and it gives me 12 perfectly sized, yummy muffins. Perfect for snacks, lunches or dessert.
OK, so they aren’t the giant, puffy topped muffins you’ll get at McCafe… BUT they are guilt free. Even when we go one step further and add Paleo chocolate ganache. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…!
So do yourself a favour, head over to George’s website and and check out this recipe and his many, many other brilliant recipes.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day out there – thanks for reading!
