Aunt Debbie’s Paleo Banana Bread

Print

My Aunt Debbie’s banana bread is the best ever. It’s the bread that filled my childhood snack times and the only banana bread I’ve ever truly enjoyed. I managed to recreate a paleo version of that bread, using cassava flour. While tapioca flour is a starch extracted from cassava root, it’s not to be confused with cassava flour which is made using the whole cassava root. Some suggest it can replace wheat flour 1:1 in traditional recipes. In any case, I’m off to enjoy another slice of my childhood favorite…

Further Food Commentary:

I love the use of Cassava flour in this recipe as it is unusual but a wonderful gluten free substitute for those out there who can not tolerate gluten. Cassava is very high in fiber, contains some protein and is low in fat. This recipe is full of fiber, low in sugar and uses ghee which is clarified butter that even most lactose intolerant individuals can tolerate. What a delicious recipe full of many rich yet nutritious ingredients!

      Thank you! I buy it from my local African specialty store, Chez Kausar, but it’s also available online (such as Otto’s Naturals cassava flour). I hope that helps!
