Best of Elf on the Shelf 2

I'm in deep with Elf on the Shelf. I look at photos online for at least 30 minutes a day. Is there a helpline for this? Well, I am enjoying it and my child's reaction each day, which is why I do anything anymore. Check out these ideas.

Recipe: Gluten-free Banana Bread

This recipe is as easy as pie, or banana bread. This is my first gluten-free recipe. Give it a try.

4 ripe bananas, peeled
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
6 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix dry ingredients (flours, salt, baking soda, and walnuts) in a large bowl.
3. In a medium bowl, smash bananas with a fork, then add oil and eggs. Mix until smooth.
4. Pour dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
5. Use olive oil to grease a loaf pan.
6. Pour batter into pan (9.25 x 5.25 x 2.75 inches) lined with parchment paper and brushed with olive oil.
7. Bake for 50 minutes.

Slice into the loaf and drizzle a bit of honey on top before serving. Or, you can cover a slice with sweet fruit.
