We moved to Maui in June. We originally expected to be here just for the summer and return to Austin, but have enjoyed it so much, that we decided to stay. One of the things that I love most about living here is the abundance of fruit dripping from the trees. We have 2 kinds of bananas, guavas, star fruit, orange and tangerine trees on our property and avocados next door.
Bananas are our highest coveted fruit because we use them in so many of our paleo baked goods. Banana waffles, bread, muffins, ice cream and smoothies all vie for our tasty bananas. The bananas here are denser than mainland bananas and also seem more starchy and less watery, so traditional bananas may yield a slightly different bread, but thats not a problem at all, just different.
I like to make large batches and freeze in 1/2 loaves and pull out when I want a couple days of breakfast or snacks. It makes great banana bread french toast, you can eat alone, with butter, almond butter and jam, paleo nutella, really anything since this bread is less sweet than the traditional one that hast 2 cups of sugar OR MORE! I love it grilled with butter, then eat with eggs, bacon and fresh berries. Such a tasty breakfast without being TOO SWEET, you know?!?!
