I know you are going to say, banana bread again?  oh yes, my dears! although there are a bunch of recipes out there that I have been tested and made some of them, I only want to to make it more healthy, with more fiber, protein, good fats, some anti-inflammatory and antioxidants spices to enhance the health, refined sugar-free, vitamins, and minerals, it`s very savory and moist at the same time, sounds good to you? I don´t know if I have to call it bread or cake, the tiny slice leftover that I have in my fridge taste better than yesterday.

You know that when you work with coconut flour, you need to have the right proportions to the dough does not crumble when it`s finished, so I did my variations to help it comes together and I really love it. Did you see it?  is absolutely amazing! 😍

  15. 1 scoop collagen protein

Mash the ripped bananas with a fork, then add the lemon juice and stir well. Set aside.

In a bowl beat the eggs with the seed egg, then add the rest of the wet ingredients until well mixed.

Into another bowl, throw the rest and dry ingredients, stir well.

Mix gradually the dry ingredients into the wet, until you have a thick dough without lumps Wait between 5-10 minutes to the coconut flour absorbs the liquids.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake between 50-60 minutes, or until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes clean, it`s cracked and golden.

Take it out of the oven, let it cool at room temperature.


Salted Date Caramel:

How to do it?
Making Salted  Date Caramel (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Whole30, Refined Sugar-Free).jpg
Soak the dates in warm water.

Then add them to a food processor with the warm water, coconut milk, salt, and oil. I recommend to put the warm water first, then add one by one a tablespoon of the coconut milk until it reaches the desired consistency, if you add more milk than I told here, it will be lesser thick.

Process scraping the sides as needed, until you have a smooth texture.

Set aside until the bread is done and cooled.

Spread it over the bread, if you want, sprinkle salt over it, at this point you will want to take a slice, believe me, I totally understand you, but it `s better if you let it sets into the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Store it in an airtight container up to one week.

Enjoy! 💪😋

Notes: When I mean very ripped bananas, they were almost black with a creamy inside texture that I put into my fridge so that they do not spoil, they are sweeter than the yellow ones.
I let here the 2 nutrition facts of the banana bread and the salted date caramel, you decide if you want it like that, or prefer to do only the bread.


1 scoop of the Collagen Protein is about 11 gr protein, divided by 10 slices = 1.1 g more of protein in one slice, so the result is 5.1 g of protein in each slice of this bread, but when you sum the salted caramel bread you will have a total of 6 g of protein in each one.


The recipe makes 10 slices.
