It’s amazing what you can find surfing Instagram. We’ve found several ideas to inspire our recipe development but in this instance, we found a whole recipe! This Instagram find came from elyonlylyablolus, one of the authors of the blog Plaisir Vegan, a site dedicated to simple techniques for vegan cooking. Although the original recipe for this vegan banana bread calls for wheat flour, it also works well with rice flour to make a bread that’s both vegan and gluten free. We love this recipe not only for the scrumptious simplicity but because it stars banana.
Bananas are loaded with nutrients essential to sexual hormone production including potassium and B vitamins. True, banana is a bit of an aphrodisiac world cliche but that doesn’t make it any less of an aphrodisiac! Don’t believe us? Try it as part of an intimate breakfast in bed for two and you be the judge.
