Cozy Banana Bread Recipe and A “From Scratch” Cookbook Review
Prep time
Total time
Recipe from the cookbook: From Scratch
Serves: 1 large loaf
  • 5 extra ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup raw milk
  • 6 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sprouted whole wheat flour (rice flour or freshly ground hard red winter wheat works too)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • (optional: I added 3 pastured eggs to mine so it would rise really high, but this is not necessary if you want to make this recipe egg free)
  1. Blend the wet ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then, gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  3. Pour the dough into a generously buttered loaf pan.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for about an hour, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Remove to wire rack to cool.
  6. Serve with a smear of butter, it is better for everyone that way.

  6. Patty White says:

    I am gluten-free, so what other flour would you suggest?  I have almond, coconut, brown rice, millet, and buckwheat.  I do hope one of them, or a mixture, would work because it sounds so yummy!  Thanks.

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      I have several recipes for this using almond and coconut flour. Just search coconut flour banana bread (upper right hand corner is the search button) or simply type in banana bread and they will all come up.
