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 😉

Well, helllloooo! And happy 2019!

Wow. Always weird to say the number of the new year. It’s kind of cliche but it always sneaks up on me! I’m thinking we should embrace it with this yummy & easy dinner recipe because:

your 2019 needs this easy paleo teriyaki salmon.

 

It’s my favorite meal that I’ve made these past couple of months, and I foresee it coming back again and again in our weekly meal plan for three reasons:

  1. This salmon recipe is super easy to make – most of the cook time is hands off.
  2. It’s also crazy healthy and free from all the inflammatory ingredients that usually gunk up a standard teriyaki sauce.
  3. SO YUMMY. Like so much flavor. With just the right sticky texture and a sweet to salty ratio that will keep you coming back for bite after bite. (The first time I made this recipe, my husband and I didn’t even bother eating off of plates. Literally devoured a whole batch straight off of the baking sheet. Savage I know, but don’t judge until you try this salmon for yourself! 😜)

I figured why not get the year started with a dinner that says: 2019, we are HERE – with some crazy delicious food in tow 💯

Food that is the equivalent of a power pose meal. Strong, bold, and good for your self confidence 😉
