      Hi Lori, I am sorry you didn’t like this banana bread recipe but as someone who enjoys baking breads I can’t say that I am surprised. Banana bread is one of my all-time favorite treats so when my sister-in-law talked me into trying the Paleo diet I was adament that she help me find a “Paleo-approved” banana bread recipe. The two of us experimented and came up with this recipe. When I first tasted it, it tasted nothing like the traditional banana breads I am used to baking with sugar, butter, flour, etc. But I had to remind myself that those ingredients are not part of this diet and I had to adjust my taste expectation accordingly. Overall, I’ll agree with you that this banana bread does not entirely taste like traditional banana bread but considering the confines of this diet this recipe is as close as one can get.
      * The only change I can suggest you make is to use almond flour instead of coconut flour since within the Paleo diet these two gluten free flours can often be used interchangeably.
