Paleo Banana Bread with walnuts and cinnamon

Paleo Banana Bread with walnuts and cinnamon

Delicious, moist, with cinnamon and crunchy walnuts banana bread!

  • Delicately sweet, thanks to ripe bananas – although without sugar;
  • Gluten-free and low-carbohydrate – thanks to almond and coconut flour;
  • Wonderfully moist – without the addition of fat;
  • High protein (almond flour and eggs) and improving metabolism (cinnamon);
  • Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, thanks to the addition of walnuts.

Banana bread is very popular in United States.

Its recipe is based on ripe bananas, wheat flour, eggs, sugar, vegetable oil and baking soda.

The walnuts, pecans or dried cranberries, or chocolate chips, are often indoors.

 

I propose you a much lighter version, without gluten, sugar and extra fat.

The taste is phenomenal, and most importantly extremely nutritious!

Recently this is my breakfast hit 🙂

Adding nut butter (almond, peanut or cashew) and fresh fruit is addictive!

Try it and you will not regret it 🙂

Good news for people on the diet:

Bread is low in carbohydrates, contains sugars only from bananas.

It is rich in dietary fiber, which speeds up metabolism, just like cinnamon.

It contains omega 3 acids, which are the source of walnuts. This is undoubtedly one of the components of the “superfoods”.

Walnuts

Protein Mini Snickers – 100% natural, 0% sugar

Protein Mini Snickers – 100% natural, 0% sugar

Can the original give way to a healthy, low-carb, sugar-free and full protein version of the popular bar?

What’s more – these bars can be eaten without remorse, and even for the health and slim figure 🙂

The base and main ingredient is natural vege powder protein.

At present, we have a very large selection of vege proteins: soybeans, peas, hemp or rice. They can be a great base for preparing both “dry” and “sweet”.

I mostly go for hemp protein, which is characterized by:

  • High amino acid content (provides all 20 kinds of amino acids) whose ratio is similar to that of animal protein;
  • High content of fiber;
  • High content of iron, magnesium and zinc;
  •  Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids;
  • The fact that it is easy to digest.

This is a great alternative to animal protein for vegans and for people who need or want to increase the supply of amino acids in their diets without resorting to animal products.

Snickers can not run out of peanuts – thanks to them we have such a characteristic taste.

Peanuts are not actually nuts, but belong to the group of legumes. However, it was accepted, they call it nuts because they ripen underground.

 

What makes peanuts stand out?

  • They are very rich in protein – in 100 grams there is about 26 grams!

This is the record among nuts in terms of the content of vitamin B3 (niacin).

Feeling tired, stressed and suffering from insomnia? Also your skin is not in the best shape?

Eat peanuts! It’s a great natural niacin supplement.

  • Although they contain a lot of fat (almost half of their content), mainly in the form of monounsaturated and unsaturated fatty acids, they are eaten in reasonable amounts to help with weight loss and “metabolism”.

Therefore, even when you are on a diet, you should eat a handful of nuts or a teaspoon of nuts butter (in its natural form without salt, sugar and earlier frying in vegetable oil).

  • Folic acid, vitamin E, phosphorus, iron and magnesium are another of their nutritional benefits.

 

  • Popular peanut butter (without added sugar and vegetable oils) can be used to prepare desserts, sauces and dips. Great combination as a supplement to porridge or used as a grease on whole grains toasts with fresh fruit or jam also tastes good 🙂

 

Protein Snickers must have a “caramel”.

Dried, unpeeled apricots will be perfect.

Extremely rich in beta carotene and iron, will provide beautiful, bright and radiant skin and energy.

The top of the bars is real and sugar-free topped with raw cocoa.

About the properties and benefits of raw cocoa (in reasonable quantities) you can read HERE (click).

I will mention only that thanks to the high content of magnesium, when you eating – feel the tide of happiness and joy 🙂

Recipe Notes

For occupancy: Peanuts (natural, without salt and not fried in fat) After preparation, cool the bars and eat straight from the fridge.

They taste the best!

Good to know:

Despite the many advantages, peanuts also have disadvantages:

First of all: they are very strong allergens, which means that even in an allergic person, anaphylactic shock can occur.

Therefore, food law regulations require food manufacturers to mark products where they can potentially be found.

Second: peanuts, which are inadequately stored, often mold and may produce strong toxins called aflatoxins (which have a damaging effect on the liver cells).

To avoid this, you should buy good quality peanuts, pods and tightly packed.

Third: Despite the content of healthy fats, peanuts are high in omega 6 and low in omega 3 (ratio 20: 1).

We must remember that our diet is predominantly omega 6 fatty acids, mainly derived from vegetable oils.

In order to balance the supply of omega 3 fatty acids should be included in the diet organic fatty sea fish, cold pressed linseed oil and walnuts.
