Skinny Strawberry-Banana Bread



1 cup mashed over-ripe bananas
1 1/4 cup gluten-free flour (Pamela’s was used for this recipe) *recipe is Paleo if paleo-friendly grain-free, gluten-free flour is used
1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup or coconut sugar
2/3 cup coconut milk (lite or whole will work)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup finely-chopped fresh strawberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a blender or food processor, beat together the bananas,gluten-free flour, arrowroot powder, sweetener, vanilla, baking powder, coconut milk, coconut oil, and cinnamon together.

Stir in chia seeds. Allow to sit for 5 minutes while the chia seeds thicken the batter. Add the finely chopped berries to the batter and stir them in gently.

Spray a 24-count mini loaf tin (or 36-count mini muffin tin) with nonstick olive oil spray. Spoon batter into baking tin.

Bake for 8-12 minutes, or just until the center of each muffin springs back when touched lightly.

Remove and cool.

If desired, drizzle more coconut cream & chia seeds over cooked loaves. Serve and enjoy!
