Banana Bread

Sticky and gooey banana bread gets better over the day or two after its baked
I took this recipe from the internet a while ago, and made a few tweaks to it over a few iterations of baking it, the original had walnuts in it as well, no thank you! If you can hold off eating it for a day or two after baking, it gets gooier and stickier though I'm lucky if the loaf lasts a day or two, let alone not being touched until then....

    This recipe looks awesome!!! Since I don’t use grain flour, do you think almond or coconut flour would work well as a substitute? Thanks!

    I'm glad you like the look of the recipe, unfortunately I don't have any experience with substituting different flours. You could try somewhere like though to ask that question =)
