Well, here I am, in 2012 trying out vegan recipes to see how my body responds to being egg-free for a while. So far, my body is responding well. Maybe it's all the Vitamin D I've gotten. Or maybe it's the beautiful French music I've been listening to (songs like 'La noyee,' by Carla Bruni... beautiful). Or maybe it's the presence of love in my life. Whatever it is, has put my in a mighty fine mood.

So, without further adieu...
Vegan Banana Bread (Grain-free)
2 small bananas (ripe but not previously frozen)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 dates (about 5)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 cups almond flour (I used unblanched)
1/2 cup pecan flour
1 tbls tapioca flour
1 tbls baking powder
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Add the bananas, water, olive oil, vanilla, dates and maple syrup in a good processor. Puree.
Meanwhile, combine the almond, pecan and tapioca flour with the baking powder.
Add the liquid puree to the dry ingredients and stir well. Lastly, add in the apple cider vinegar and mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.
