    I have a ratio question

    I have this awesome banana bread recipe that I would like to convert Primal. Can I replace the standard flour with coconut or almond flour as the same ratio.... ie 2cups flour = 2 cups coconut flour? Everything else in the recipe is primal, bananas, eggs, butter, salt and I am going to omit the sugar and add an extra banana. What do you all think? I have never tried baking primal yet, but if it can benefit my kidlets well and the mr. and I why not right? Everyone loves banana bread here and I would love to have a nice warm slice with butter on it

    I have no clue, but I have a question if you don't mind the sub-topic...

    are these primal baking recipes actually healthy? In what amounts? I'm sure they're better than conventional stuff, but I have a PB aversion to all things "cake" or resembling such ... I'm pretty ignorant on the subject which is why I ask.

    I would check out some pre-exsisting recipes for primal banana bread. My impression of coconut flour, due to it's density, is that it is not as simple as 1:1 with flour.

    eh. I'm with you on avoiding the replacements, but based on her ingredients the worst thing is the fructose in the banana. As long as this isn't being a breakfast every morning then it doesn't seem bad at all.

    thanks everyone!!

    Iniquity...first...I don't know if you remember your post about NJ/PA I am originally from Morris county area...so close neighbors, now I live in the lehigh Valley of PA...
    2nd...I wouldn't bake this everyday, I am thinking this is more for a comfort replacement now and again, you know, just like Marks, coconut pancakes.

    lcme thanks I will check it out.

    Yeah it is basically like 4 bananas and it makes 2 whole loafs so you are really talking minimal amounts of bananas in 2 whole loafs of it too. I mean you would be eating less than a 1/4 of a banana in a 'serving'

    I wasn't trying to pass judgment, I just wanted to know if coconut flour alone could turn something you wouldn't normally consider into a go-to dessert or something. I'm sure they're tasty, I like banana nut loafs at starbucks but haven't had one in AGES... for obvious reasons.

    I am not so sensitive today LOL (referring to that crazy post yesterday about the brownie)....no offense taken I know you weren't passing judgement.

    Well if south and warm....NorthCarolina is a great place to live and MUCH MUCH cheaper. We have family in Georgia too, but quite frankly it is too hot and humid there for my taste. I would love to move more west, but we have too much family in the tri-state area it would get way more expensive traveling to and fro etc. I thought I could never live out Jersey, but now I can't imagine moving back...too much traffic...2 weeks ago it took me over 3 hours to drive from my house to Woodcliff Lake for my cousin's shower...it should have been an hour 20 minutes...it was insane being stuck on route 80 all that time!! I can't do it anymore, been gone too long, love my country rolling farmlands
