This banana bread is the perfect way to use up your over-ripe bananas!  We always seem to have tons of super ripe bananas around the house – one minute they are green and the next they have gone way past yellow 🙂

My mom never cooked all that much when I was growing up, but she loved making banana bread!  I remember having it a lot as a kid and getting super excited waiting for it in the oven.  She always added walnuts and chocolate chips, so to me no banana bread is complete without them!  I should really ask her for her recipe of it as well!

I wanted to make a healthier version, and used coconut flour as the base because we got a giant Costco-sized bag of it that I need to use up.  This can be used with flax egg or regular egg, so just a preference for what you would like.
