Maple Pecan Banana Bread

Well, it's certainly not paleo... but it certainly is good ;) And, good thing brown rice is one of my 'exceptions' when it comes to not eating grains. While I don't eat it often, it's nice and comforting every once in while.

I have this love hate relationship with maple. Trouble is, my taste buds love it but my brain tells me "No it's sugar! Hate it!" OK- it's sugar but it is one of the more friendly sugars. Actually, it's borderline good for you (I know, right?) I'm talking about 100% pure maple. You can read more about that here.

Now, on with the baking...

Maple Pecan Banana Bread

2 1/4 cups brown rice flour
1 tbls arrowroot powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
Dash of sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup maple covered pecans (I get these from WF foods- you can also use plan)
3 eggs (organic cage-free)
3 ripe bananas
1 tbls vanilla
1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil

In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mix all of the wet ingredients together. In a medium size mixing bowl, blend the dry ingredients. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet until the bread dough forms and then fold in the nuts. Coat a bread pan with coconut oil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, at 20 minutes cover the bread and then bake another 15 minutes. 

Yep, that settles it. I love maple. 
Enjoy ;)
