Paleo Coconut Flour Banana Bread (Paleo, Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Grain-free, Refined Sugar-free)

Hi friends,

I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free baking more and more and although it is a lot harder to get good results, I am loving it! I find gluten-free flours have a natural sweetness to them and require less sugar to make the baking taste good. For example, this bread used 0 added sugars (minus the chocolate) and still tasted SO SWEET to me thanks to the SUPER ripe bananas. That’s definitely key.

However, some of that has to do with my taste buds too. I find the more clean I eat, the more sensitive my taste buds are to sugar. Over time (a long time!) I find myself needing less and less sweetness to feel satisfied. However, I’ve included some maple syrup in the recipe, if you’d like to add it in!
