Bread makes life better. It just does! Typically, the Paleo diet doesn’t allow bread, as regular bread carries a lot of grains and some dairy (which are two big no-no’s on this diet). However, we can get a little tricky and make our own bread…making it 100% Paleo approved! I love that in the Paleo Diet we can find substitutes to some of our favorite foods and don’t need to compromise.
This deliciously satisfying Paleo Banana Bread with Blueberries will definitely stop your bread cravings. It’s soft, sweet and very nutritious!
The berries added to this bread are wonderful for you; blueberries have a ton of antioxidants that will help you fight against free radicals that may cause cancer; they also are a rich source of fiber and vitamin C, which will keep your digestive system healthy and keep your immune system strong. I am a sucker for berries; they are nature’s gift to us!
Hope you like this little bread as much as I did, you guys! It goes super well with a hot beverage, so enjoy it with your favorite cup of tea (by the fire) on those snow-filled days!
