Recipe: Healthy Banana Bread - Rezept: Gesundes Bananenbrot

This banana bread is amazing! I've been making it for a few weeks, and it's gone by the time I remember that I want to take a picture of it for my blog post.

I'm not even sure how I found it anymore, but here's the link to Dairy Free Chick and the original recipe post:

What makes this banana bread healthy is that it has no added sugar, coconut flour is used instead of regular flower, and it doesn't even include dairy (not that I think dairy isn't healthy). 

The first time I made it, I really wasn't so sure. The consistency of the dough is really different from baking with regular flour. But once I took the first bite (when it was cool) - I fell in love! Since we've pretty much eliminated all bread and wheat from our diet, breakfasts have been really hard for me some mornings. I go workout early, and don't have time in between to fix breakfast. Sometimes I don't even go home, and even though I love the egg muffins, they just taste better warm... Plus, the no sugar thing is really not that easy either... 
But once I discovered this recipe... well, let's just say, it really has helped!

I eat it for breakfast, as a snack, or have a little slice in the afternoon with a coffee! Josh, my husband, loves it too! He actually has breakfast if we have some banana bread in the house. He likes to have his with milk (or a protein shake). 

So here it is:

Recipe: Quick Lunch Salad - Creamy Tuna and Bean

So, the other day I got home from work around noon and I was really, really hungry. I didn't have any leftovers, so I got creative.
I've made bean and tuna salads before, but not the creamy kind, but I wanted something a little different.

It's not very pretty, but tastes pretty good

Let's hope I still remember everything I put in:
