Gluten-Free Banana & Walnut Bread

Oxygen Magazine recently posted this recipe for Gluten-free banana and walnut bread. They said that “walnuts provide healthy fats that improve fat metabolism.”  Add this with the coconut oil and you are eating a ton of healthy fats!  Oxygen also said, “Bananas contain resistant starch, which studies suggest nudges your body to use up fat for energy instead of carbs.”

    Thank you for a new recipe for my family to try. My son, age 8, has a wheat allergy, so finding tasty foods he will like is not as easy as some might think now that more and more gluten free recipes and items are being made available. This we will have to try.
