    Can I have this as part of DSP?

    Yes Elham , all ingredients are dsp approved. I would count 2 slices as 2 proteins and 1 carb. The bread is very filling.

    Looking forward to that post Halle. Please include info on where it might be best to buy it….for a competitive price. Options aren’t that plentiful for some. I’m guessing you might have an online source? As always, thanks for your encouragement & genuine passion to help people cook healthier (and stay sane). :))) Darn those gluten free flours!

    Just made this. The texture is very close to regular banana bread. I don’t usually like the coconut flour too much, but this is good. I must have a sweet tooth because I want it to be sweeter. Maybe some steviva next time?

      @KristyGuilfoy Try adding 1-2 tbsp of raw honey, that would even improve the texture some more. Glad you enjoyed it :)

    Hi Halle ~ I have an overabundance of zucchini right now and was wondering if you have tried to “sub” it for the bananas in this recipe.

       @PattyinMo i have not but I think you could.  You might need to add a bit more honey to compensate for the sweetness of the bananas.  If you try it please share how it turned out :)

    Does anyone know where I can find a calculator that would show fiber content / net carbs?  Thanks.

    Not sure what I did wrong but the bread came out brown on the outside but very wet inside and when I transfer it to a plate it fell apart :(

      @AmandaDPrice oh no!! What was the brand of coconut flour did you used?

         I put it back into the oven for 10 min and its not as wet.

        @AmandaDPrice wilderness families is a great company but I have never used their coconut flour before. Sounds to me that there might not have been enough coconut flour. Coconut flour can be tricky to cook with at times.

        @hallecottis  @AmandaDPrice
         I took it out of the oven and the outside is almost black :( inside stick a bit gooey but not as bad.  I will see what it looks and tastes like once it is cooled.  Needless to say my pan is going to need a soak.  The smell of it cooking was delicious but somehow it just didn’t turn out.

    Thank you for the recipe:)) it was awesome! I made a few simple changes ( ran out of eggs so I used flax seed{ground} and I used 3T of honey instead of 1T. My kids loved it also so I shared on Pinterest!

    What would be the equivalent in using whole wheat flour instead?. Thats all i have, and i sould lkke to bake it today. Thanks for the wonderful recipes.

      The recipe would change all together.  You would need to use less eggs and more flour.  I am not sure, you would have to experiment.  I would start with using only 2 eggs and start with 1 1/2 cup of flour and work your way up until you get the consistency of a batter of banana bread (probably close to 2 1/2 cups would be my guess).  I’d also add about 1/2 tsp of baking powder.  See how that works and let us know how it worked :)

    Can I use molasses instead of the honey?

    I did these as muffins with 1/4 C Chocolate chips added. SO GOOD!

    I added a tablespoon of flaxmeal, chia seeds and sunflower seeds, 1/2 c. carrots, and some dried cranberries. What great texture!!! But the flavor was awful!!! With 1 T. of honey, I can see why. Next time I make this recipe, I will add Xylitol. I needed to bake the one 5 x 9 loaf 20 extra minutes. Thanks for sharing all.

    This looks GREAT!! I wasn’t sure when to add the walnuts? So I just added them with the flour, and sprinkled on top. Is that what you did? Thank you so much!!!

    i just made this and it tastes so good, but just falls apart. it’s so crumbly, not at all the consistency of real banana bread. did i do something wrong?

      Have you ever worked with coconut flour before. It has a different texture, and this is what you are most likely experiencing.
