Benefits of Baking with Coconut Flour

This banana bread recipe is a delicious low-carb version of the very popular quick bread. It gets its traditional fluffiness from almond and coconut flour instead of all-purpose or wheat flours. There are actually a lot of health benefits to baking with coconut flour (besides being a low-carb substitute).

1. Coconut flour is actually very high in dietary fiber and can also help lower cholesterol levels. A 100 gram serving of coconut flour actually has 39 grams of dietary fiber, while the recommended daily amount for adults is between 20-35 grams.

2. It is also filled with healthy fats. Coconut flour is made from pure, dried coconut that is blended into a fine powder, so you keep all of those healthy fats that are found in coconut flesh. 

3. Coconut flour packs a protein punch! Each 100 gram serving of coconut flour contains 19.3 grams of protein, which is far more than other flours.

This sounds lovely! I still love my carbs, but I would totally eat these.

I love that this recipe is also low on gluten. I don't eat gluten free, but I try to limit my gluten intake. This sounds like a great banana bread recipe that would work with my particular diet.

We love banana bread in our family. The addition of nuts really takes it to a new level. Would it be possible to reduce the number of eggs in the recipe, as we are also watching our cholesterol levels? Could egg whites be substituted, or partially substituted?

That's a great question! We haven't tried replacing the eggs in this recipe, so we can't say for sure that it'll work. If you do try it, please let us know how it goes! Here's an article about different substitutes you can use for eggs:

I love banana bread. Thanks for the recipe!

Can I use eggbeaters instead of the eggs?
