Ok, it’s not really just for climbers, and you can eat it in other places besides at climbing areas, but this banana bread is staple crag food for Seth and me because it’s filling, mildly sweet, and it has a good amount of carbs, protein, and fat all in one package. And it’s very portable. We make large batches of it (this picture is a quadruple batch), freeze large pieces of it separately and then just take one of the big pieces with us to the crag and let it thaw out on the way up.
This is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free, but definitely not flavor-free. This is good stuff 🙂
Banana Bread Recipe for Climbers
Combine the following into a bowl with a mixer (or your hands like I do):
4 ripe bananas
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut butter or almond butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Pour into a bread pan or a pie dish (whatever you prefer) and bake for about 25 minutes (or until a butter knife poked into the middle of it comes out clean) at 375F. Makes 8 slices.
