Adapted from comfy belly via peanut butter runner, this banana bread is nicely sweetened with agave and moist from the almond meal. Its gluten and dairy free too! You can easily make it with 2 bananas leaving the one off the top. —i.m.

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

So now that I've prepared the batter and thrown this banana bread in the oven... how long is it supposed to bake for?
