Paleo Banana Bread

Announcement:  If you are getting this via email either via my new newsletter or Feedburner it is because you used to subscribe to Delishhh Food Blog, which is now Carrots & Spice Food Blog.  If you no longer wish to get this email you can unsubscribe below.  If you are getting this via Feedburner I suggest you move over to my new newsletter you can subscribe right here.

I am back!  This food blog site used to be Delishhh but it did not feel like it fit me anymore nor did I like that I was competing with Microsoft food site Delish.  So I have changed the name to Carrots & Spice.  It fits much better and I am going to focus on Healthy Recipes for Busy Family.  I work full time, have a family and try to juggle it all.  How do we still eat healthy home cooked meals?  Well I will be sharing my recipes, my shortcuts, and my tricks.

My family is mostly Paleo some Gluten Free and sometimes we will have diary too, so many of the recipes will be Paleo or Gluten Free or even Dairy Free but I will always provide alternatives and options.  On top of that husband is diabetic I will also always consider low sugar or no sugar and low glycemic foods.

It has been very busy since I wrote this blog last, life just took over.  That doesn’t mean I stopped cooking or writing recipes.  I have a whole notebook full of them and I really missed sharing them with you.  Recipe creation and cooking never stopped but I really missed bogging about them, so I am very excited to be back.  I will also work to update the old recipes so they reflect Paleo or Gluten Free lifestyles but they will not go away.

The other new things that will be coming shortly is a store.  I will link to the ingredients in recipes and products I choose to use in my kitchen.  Paleo or gluten free products and also no toxic kitchen cookware and or appliances that I use and like the best.

My first recipe I want to share with you is this fabulous Banana Bread.  I honestly make this weekly to have in the house as a quick snack and it is Paleo and dairy free.  If you can tolerate dairy I recommend using the butter vs. the coconut oil instead.  This banana bread is truly bullet proof, you can’t mess it up.  You also exchange some bananas for squash as well.  During the fall I do half banana and half squash.  I also recommend the bananas to be rip because they are sweeter but they don not have to be.   Another great thing about the bread is that is very diabetic friendly.

Glad to be back and can’t wait to hear from you! I am always open to suggestions.
