So, I’m in the worst mood. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m mid-pilot or if it’s because of the terrible dream I had last night where Los Dos were kidnapped and I had to scale these really high SHELVES. Anyway, when I feel like this, sometimes I just need to HATE-BAKE - where I take out all my negative energy on making, then consuming large amounts of fat and sugar. Sadly, while my husband is getting in amazing shape through Crossfit, my post-partum body continues to resemble that of a pre-pubescent boy with an estrogen imbalance (read: flat chested and inexplicably dumpy hips.) Crossfit is super annoying and I’m pretty sure it’s a cult, but it does seem to work. Especially if you adhere to the ridiculous “paleo” diet they want you to go on. The paleo diet does not normally account for hate-baking, but I found a way around it that satisfies my hate-baking urges without making me even more squishy.
I present to you PALEO BANANA BREAD. (Kill me now. But also, make me thinner.)
2 Cups Almond Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup butter, melted (next time I will remember to try using my coconut oil! but for whatever reason, which I don’t understand, butter IS “paleo-friendly.” gross.)
2 very ripe bananas, mashed (add more for sweeter bread)
Mix dry ingredients, mix wet ingredients, then combine together and pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350.
