Okay, I think that banana bread has been getting a lot of popularity lately. Yes, it does have a great smell. Taste, is also good... I will not deny that. But wait till you try this Papaya Bread! Sounds a bit crazy but trust me, THIS. IS GOOD.
Papaya, a very tropical fruit and that just as banana tress, they also grow in the same type of weather. My grandma has some papaya and banana trees in her house and that's amazing! That place is just amazing, she grows all sorts of vitamin C rich foods such as; lemons, limes, grapefruits, oranges, tangerines, guavas, chiles, papayas, avocados and bananas.
Actually I found my love for papaya one time I has in her house! With a papaya smoothie, it changed my mind and opened my mind to a whole new world (dramatic? me? nah!). But know if my turn to change this up.
BYE BANANA BREAD, HELLO PAPAYA BREAD!
This amazing fruit has loads of goods inside, it's a source of vitamin C as I mentioned and it also known for the digestive properties. It turns out that papayas a a source protelitic enzymes, such as papain and chymopapain, these have an antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties.
In this recipe we are sticking to the basics of banana bread, simple ingredients! We are using all paleo friendly and low carb ingredients in this recipe. And instead of banana, well, we are using papaya. Once it's in a pureed consistency it works just as banana.
Some other ingredients inside this recipe includes:
Granulated Monk Fruit
Ghee or Coconut Oil
Super basic, and for the caramel I used Vanilla Ghee from Gold Nugget Ghee and Vital Proteins Cacao Caramel Latte, two scoops. Perfect addition of gut nutrients (amino acids from Vital Proteins Collagen) and healthy fatty acids from the ghee. Also easier to digest!
To keep things sweet I used granulated monk fruit as my sweetener. The old classic that never fails and my personal favorite, use code PURELYHL for Lakanto's discount. This applies to all products on their website.
