I made this Almond Flour Banana Bread to snack on this week and really liked it. It's gluten free and sweetened naturally with mashed bananas and a little honey, if you're into those sorts of recipes (I am). (  

This article about enjoying being a working mom was very interesting to me since generally being a working mom is portrayed in a stressful light. (

  1. I've made a similar beef sirloin tips and gravy recipe that my dog ended up loving more than my family (lol).

    I'm interested in the almond flour banana bread, but almond flour in our grocery stores are expensive!

I don't know how people that need to eat gluten-free do it! I have heard that it's more budget friendly to purchase items like almond flour online and in bulk but I haven't tried it yet. I have another banana bread recipe with more traditional ingredients that we absolutely love--I'll try to make that an upcoming post! It's based on this recipe: but doesn't used refined sugars.
