Cinnamon, coconut and bananas are meant for each other. Do you agree?

For the glaze, is the coconut milk the canned variety or from a carton? Looks delicious! I can’t wait to try this! I might be swap out the bananas for applesauce then chop apples for the middle instead of the cinnamon/sugar mix. So many options! Thanks!!

Tracy we use canned coconut milk. Apples sound yummy!

Cat March 18, 2015 - 12:29 pm

Yum! I love all the above 😉 Especially the look of that glaze! I’ve got some brown rice protein and I LOVE it – I must try baking with it more. This is a great one girls!

Let us know how you like it

Mary March 18, 2015 - 1:38 pm

Could you please tell me the exact measurements you used to make the 2 cups of flour with the coconut flour, arrowroot, and hemp protein? Thank you!

heather March 18, 2015 - 3:16 pm

So from the above comment you think applesauce would work? I HATE bananas! I know right…am I human? Also, I know you girls love your coconut butter/oil but is there a substitute…I think I am allergic to coconut! : ( Michelle, I know you have had to watch out for added sugars but were you able to enjoy some of your beautiful creation? And have you ever tried VEGA protein powder?

purelytwins March 18, 2015 - 9:15 pm

You can try applesauce or even pumpkin. To substitute coconut oil in our recipes the only real thing that could work is cacao butter. Michelle did not have any of this recipe. Yes years ago we ate vega all the time. Great product.

brown rice protein works so well in baking! love it! YUM!

Kim March 18, 2015 - 7:30 pm

I never know which kinds of protein powders to buy. Do you have a preferred brand? This looks delicious!

I would like to make this recipe. Could you please answer my question I posted a few days ago? Thanks

Mary we mentioned in the video it’s a 2:1 ratio flour to starch

Mary April 1, 2015 - 7:02 am

•2 cups gluten-free flour blend (ours contained brown rice protein, coconut flour, arrowroot starch)

I know it’s 2:1, but am confused of the measurements since protein powder is added to it. If there are 2 cups of blend, then can u pls tell me how much of each to use since it’s made of 3 different ingredients. Thank you

Ana May 17, 2015 - 9:16 pm

This receipt is not very clear. Do you expect people to just figure out this flour blend? You say 2:1 ratio but use 3 ingredients. Somebody asked few times but so far no response. I cannot make this and just guess what I need to use. 1 cup brown rice, and 1/2 cup each of coconut and arrowroot?

purelytwins May 18, 2015 - 9:43 am

Ana sorry we have worked so hard to find a blend we love. If you would like to support us you can find a few different flours blends in our cookbook – Purely Classic Recipes. We share a lot of recipes here on the blog for free and some of our older bread recipes we give flour blends.

Hi Girls,
Thanks for the recipe. I tried it yesterday and it turned out great !
Il added a bit of almond meal (because I looooove almonds).
It was so chewy and the taste was amazing !
