There comes a time when you buy bananas and then leave them to sit in the fruit basket until you notice that the object that was once yellow is now a heavily spotted mess. For me, this is an every time event. It can be quite the predicament at first thought because I don’t really know anyone that could eat a banana that utterly goopy and enjoy it. You would have to pretend that it’s just an incredibly sweet and banana-ey tasting plate of cauliflower mash.
Gross, and that will that never ever happen. I don’t suggest imagining it either. Although at this point I suppose it’s inevitable that you would imagine it because I keep bringing it up. I’ll stop with my incessant ripe banana escapade talk and move on to the plus side of this. The plus side is that there is a specific law set in place for those who do things like letting there bananas sit there to get ot the point of mushy ripening. That law would be that you are required to make banana bread at that point.
See you don’t even have to make the decision to make it because it’s required. Have you got really ripe bananas? Great now make banana bread and be a happy camper. All joking aside though I really am quite happy with the way this banana bread turned out. In the words of my mother “oh my god this tastes like actual banana bread…” Well of course it does, that was the idea mom.
I don’t want to sound snooty and would like to say that this may just be the best Paleo Banana bread out there, but I’m not certain it would be right to say that. Especially seeing as I haven’t tried any of the other grain free or Paleo banana breads on the internet. But believe me when I say this is incredibly delicious, it’s one of the most moist, tender and satisfying baked goods I’ve ever had the pleasure to pull out of the oven.
I brought a loaf to school to share with my friends at lunch (which they all raved about and had no idea that it was Paleo banana bread that they were eating) but the people who didn’t get any but were in the classes before lunch were searching around the room trying to figure out where the scent was aerating from. Several people actually started to become frustrated wondering and asking why it smelled so good and where it was coming from. Being the sneak I am I only smirked and let them be confused. It was quite odd though, I’ve never seen people get so frustrated over a good smell because they couldn’t locate where it was coming from.
Maybe it was because they knew they weren’t getting any. I think I’ll have to bake up some more and bring it to those classes another day so they can at least taste it after having to endure that torture. Just try not to do what I did and share it with the people who might start to look around to figure out where that wonderful aroma is coming from or els
