Gluten and sugar free banana bread

Oh yeah, avoiding gluten and sugar means so many yummy opportunities! I heard about banana bread earlier, I was even lucky enough to try an original South African recipe out made by my South African friend. I think I stayed over at their place that night, we may had some How I Met Your Mother for dinner with Zsofi after little Alex went to sleep, and then Jermaine in the morning baked banana bread for all of us.
They are both very good cooks, it is so not fair that they gain weight as we do since I am cooking on a daily basis. al It may be a slight difference in the portions we eat (still not fair though), or as they have the cutest and most handsome 3,5 year old boy running around 24 hours a day, they may work out enough to stay fit (and we got fair play in this case of weight gaining vs eating delicious). But back to my banana bread, so it is gluten free, sugar free and still, amazingly delicious. Seriously, try it out!!


  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour (I bought ground almond in Lidl)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 gluten free baking powder (7 g)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup honey (optional, I did not add it)
  • 2 bananas mashed

Every recipe states that you need to mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, but I never do. This time I did, and I want to believe it added an extra to its special texture. First mix the dry ingredients in a big bowl, and then in a separate smaller bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Combine the two and add the bananas. Mix until well combined. Bake on 180 celsius for 50-60 minutes until the center is firm.

This is the baked banana bread:


We ate it with home made jams, butter and danish cheese:
