Gluten Free Blueberry Banana Bread with PB Swirl

blueberry loaf

 

Who doesn't love banana bread? Even the smell that circles the room when you bake it is intoxicating. It is the kind of baked good that can bring back memories for any one! Memories such as the banana bread grandma used to make or the banana bread you ate while driving Road to Hana in Maui. I love banana bread, but I needed a way to make it macrobalanced. This version uses higher protein flour such as almond flour and uses no refined sugar. It has a subtle sweetness  but yet little bit of savory flavor from the peanut butter swirl. I hope you enjoy! 

Recipe

-1/2 cup almond flour

-1/2 cup coconut flour 

-1 tsp. salt

-3/4 tsp. baking powder
