Some of You Were Asking...

What does one DO with Almond Flour?
How can it be made into something edible?
One of the answers to those questions is ~
Almond Flour Banana Cake.

But, that is not the ONLY answer.
There are so many more things that can be done with it ~
I hope to share another favourite with you soon.

But, for now...
this recipe is a good place to begin.
No grains. No dairy.
No sugar (except honey).  Intrigued?

Oh, and did I mention that it's so healthy
you can eat it for Breakfast??
What are you waiting for??

~ Almond Flour Banana Cake ~
Slightly adapted from the book

3 cups Almond Flour
(not coarse meal)

3 eggs, beaten

1/3 cup honey
(preferrably raw and liquid)

1 tsp Baking Soda

3/4 cup mashed bananas
(very ripe) ~ about two medium

1/4 cup melted butter
(if you are eliminating dairy,
coconut oil would substitute nicely)

Measure the Almond Flour and Baking Soda
into a large mixing bowl.
Stir to completely mix in the Baking Soda.
In another bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry
and stir until combined.

Spread batter evenly into a greased 8 inch square baking pan.
(I use a glass pyrex dish)

Bake at 350* F until done (about 30 to 40 minutes) ~
Check at the 30 minute mark...mine takes 35.
When done, the top should spring back when touched.

It goes quickly from done to overdone...watch closely.
It also is easy to underbake...don't do that either!
It's not too difficult, really. ;-)
Somehow, I don't think I'm very reassuring!
But, please believe me...LOL! :)

ENJOY! Without any guilt.

Many Blessings, Camille

**One thing to note ~
Almond Flour will go rancid if it's not stored properly.
Keep it in a sealed container in the fridge
or freezer for long term storage.

Dear Nadine ~ It packs a nutritional punch...apparently very good for you. It's a good alternative to wheat in this recipe. :)

Dear Lisa ~ You were one of the ones who was asking...I am glad it will work out with the supplies you have on hand. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Dear Connie ~ I had never heard of it before this diet we are doing...interesting, isn't it? We are liking some of the things that can be done with it. :)

Dear Raeann ~ You make me smile my friend! Well...maybe your almond flour is meant for doing this! ;-)

Dear Cinnamon ~ I'm sure you would find it to be a good option for your family...and a nice change of pace for variety. :)

Many blessings,
