5 Ingredient Banana Bread

Healthy 5 Ingredient Flourless Banana Bread

Gluten has been a hot topic recently. Many people have gluten sensitivities, Celiac disease, and other digestive problems. There is much debate going on as to whether or not gluten really is the culprit and the root cause of these problems. I am not a gastroenterologist or a gluten specialist, but what I do know from my own personal experience, is that over-consumption of gluten causes me to feel bloated, fatigued and an overall lethargy that I can’t shake.

All of those symptoms are alleviated when I eat more fruits, veggies, lean meats and less dairy and gluten. This may not be the case for everyone, but it is for me. As a result, I have become increasingly interested in recipes that have less gluten.

This recipe is a simple 5 ingredient flourless banana bread. It is quick and easy to make, and totally scrumptious.
