Blueberry Tahini Banana Bread
Not sure if I have made this confession before... but I only buy bananas so that I can let them get too ripe and then make banana bread. I just don't like eating a banana plain. I like them on yogurt bowls, smoothie bowls or oats, but I rarely eat those things since I've transitioned into more of a paleo style of eating. That said, I do love a warm slice of banana bread with a cup of coffee. I like to have it with my afternoon coffee because in the mornings I usually practice IF and drink bulletproof coffee. You can read about that here.
A few weeks ago on my Instagram stories, I shared a question asking my followers what they wanted to see more of on my IG/blog and I got a few requests for grain free options that are also nut free. This is pretty hard since I find cassava flour to be the best-tasting grain free flour, BUT I made this recipe with cassava flour and it is pretty darn tasty.
I love the combination of tahini and blueberry in this banana bread because it creates a more subtle sweetness. Tahini is nutty, but I find it to be a more subtle flavor profile than a PB or cashew butter. The blueberries in this are Wyman's frozen blueberries and I randomly found them at a corner market in my neighborhood and they are MY FAVORITE. They are so sweet and packed with flavor even though they are shockingly tiny.
