By far one of the best smells in the house for me is of banana bread baking in the oven. But for many of us, not being able to eat grains means we can’t eat bread — or does it?
My grandmother passed down her famous banana bread recipe to my mom who then passed it down to me. It was one of the first things I made when I moved out on my own. However, when I diagnosed with chronic ulcerative colitis, all things grain, dairy and sugar were off the table. So there went my cherished banana bread and the family memories that came along with it.
Thankfully, I stumbled across many grain-free options for cooking and baking (usually Paleo recipes) and a lightbulb lit up. I could still make recipes that satisfied not only my cravings for favorite childhood foods but my new autoimmune disease requirements. I found and tried several grain-free banana bread recipes, but none of them really wow’ed me. Then I realized that they simply didn’t put enough cinnamon (and a dash of nutmeg) in them — some of the secret ingredients that were in my family’s recipe. So I begin iterating on the ones I found online combined with my grandma’s recipe, and voila, the perfect grain-free cinnamon banana bread recipe!
