Paleo Banana BreadNothing better than warm banana bread on a cold night.  I love pastries and baked goods but I try to avoid processed sugar and flour. I want my food to be nutritional AND indulgent.  You can imagine how happy I was to discover almond flour, which is high in protein with iron and a great alternative for those avoiding carbs. Tonight I made my favorite paleo banana bread with a twist by adding more bananas and blueberries, here is the recipe:
