  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 7″x3″ bread pan
  2. Combine bananas, shortening, eggs and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor and kick it on for 30 seconds or so, until combined.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the almond flour, arrowroot starch, coconut flour and salt, and then add to the food processor. Pulse 6-8 times to combine. Scraping the sides with a rubber spatula, and pulse again a few times.
  4. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until cooked through.

* please measure your mashed banana, instead of counting whole bananas, if you want the measurements to be accurate. Bananas are like snowflakes. Sort of.
