Paleo Baking with Banana Flour

Natural Evolution Blog Posts-1_TJP

THANKS TO GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE FLOURS, IT’S NOW SUPER EASY FOR CONSUMERS FOLLOWING THE PALEO DIET TO ENJOY FRESH, HOME-MADE BAKED GOODS.

Natural Evolution’s Ultimate Gluten Free Baking Flour (made from green Cavendish bananas) is an innovative wheat flour substitute. Using it in cakes, bread or in nearly every baking recipe is a healthy alternative to satisfy a carb craving.

Green banana flour is not just paleo friendly
and gluten free, but also offers
great health benefits due to the
green banana resistant starch found
in the product.

Not bananas about the flavour of banana? Not a problem! Natural Evolution’s banana flour doesn’t actually taste of bananas, instead it’s almost flavourless, with a slightly nutty, clean taste.

To harness the flours nutritional benefits, it’s easy, just choose a wheat flour recipe and simply add 25-30% less banana flour than wheat flour, try a recipe from the Natural Evolution recipe page, or share the below recipe! We were lucky enough to have this delicious date loaf made for us by Natural Evolutions lovely owners Rob and Krista Watkins – it disappeared off the plate faster than a cave man running from a t-rex!
