Gluten-Free Banana Blueberry Loaf

This gluten-free banana loaf is low in sugar and a great addition to a clean eating, or healthy gluten-free diet.


3 yrs ago, I started a working in a popular natural food market, here in Ontario. I really loved working there and I learned so much about nutrition and healthy eating. Back then I was not ready to make the commitment to healthy eating. I loved sugar too much. Over the last few months, I started an exercise regime and being more aware of the food choices I was making. I stopped drinking soda, I tried to cut back on sweets, I rarely buy processed foods. It has been a difficult road, but being more conscious of what I am putting into my body is getting easier. 


As I said I LOVE sugar and anything sweet. I don't drink coffee, because I would have to put way too much sugar into it, to make it palatable. If the amount of desserts on this blog is any indication, it's safe to say I love my sweets, LOL. So I've started researching how to bake with ingredients that are healthier. I'm trying to use nut flours, instead of wheat flours. Some attempts have been total flops, but this latest one is delicious. The loaf is tender and is sweet without being loaded up with refined white sugar. Cinnamon is a said to help lower blood sugar and all the ingredients used in this recipe are pure and unrefined.




Gluten-Free Banana Blueberry Loaf

2 cups almond flour/ almond meal
1 Tbs cinnamon 
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp fine pink sea salt
2 Tbs Raw honey
1 Tbs vanilla 
1 tsp almond extract
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
4 eggs (at room temperature)
1 C blueberries
2 bananas, mashed
1/3 C raw almonds, roughly chopped
1 tsp coconut oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your loaf pan with coconut oil and set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, add the almond flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda; mixing until well combined.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, vanilla and almond extracts, apple cider vinegar and eggs.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients; until well combined. Fold in the mashed bananas and blueberries. 

Pour into your prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with chopped almonds.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and the center of the loaf springs back when lightly pressed.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends.

With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
