Ingredients

  • 2 large overripe bananas about 1 cup mashed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Lemon Glaze

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a 8.5"x4.5" loaf pan with parchment paper with the ends hanging off the sides.
  • Mash the bananas, and combine them with eggs, ghee, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Add coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt, and whisk together until fully combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven, and cool for 30 minutes.
  • Use the parchment paper to remove the bread out of the loaf pan, and cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • While the bread in cooling, make the lemon glaze by combining all its ingredients together in a small saucepan and heat over the lowest heat until completely melted and liquified. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of warm water to thin it out.
  • Drizzle the lemon glaze over the bread and garnish with lemon zest, if desired.
  • Slice, then serve.
  • This lemon banana bread will keep for 1 week chilled in an airtight container.
