Friends! Finally the recipe for the best paleo banana bread is ready to be shared with the world. If you follow along regularly with Nyssa’s Kitchen you might know that I am not the most skilled baker. It’s something that I ENJOY doing, but I’ve never really had the knack for creating my own baking recipes.

So when I decide to share a recipe for a baked good with you all, I test it at least (what feels like) a million times. Because getting it right is important. Especially when it’s something as yummy and esteemed (treasured) as banana bread.

So I’ve been working on this recipe for at least a month, probably literally made 12 loaves (friends and co-workers are all loving us and our banana bread gifts), to get it just right. And we’ve made it. The recipe is ready and I cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on this banana bread. It’s tender, moist, the perfect texture, just the right amount of sweet, and SO GOOD. Or as the name proclaims, the best 😉

I don’t know about you guys, but if you’re anything like me, you go crazy for just about any roasted vegetable. And roasted cauliflower has always been on the top of my list. There’s something about the way it gets all crispy, tender, sweet, and salty at the same time that makes it straight up IRRESISTIBLE to dig into.

When roasting cauliflower I usually go for the classic combo of avocado oil with salt and pepper, just because it’s easy and also totally freaking delicious. I have definitely been known to roast and devour a whole head of cauliflower solo style, but sometimes dinner deserves to be made a little more special by stepping the flavor up a notch (or two!).

This mexican roasted cauliflower does exactly that. By adding just a few little extra spices and garnishes you take a side dish that is already pretty much the best thing ever to the next level of DELICIOUS.

AKA –> craaaaazy delicious.
