The Well Woman’s Banana Buckwheat Bread

Tonya Papanikolov is the mind behind The Well Woman, a community resource for modern, holistic wellness. Through her blog, workshops, and consultations, Tonya educates and inspires those who seek healing through nourishing foods, ritual, and self-care. Currently studying under Matthew Kenney’s tutelage at vegan culinary school PLANTLAB, Tonya is focused on bringing her passions to life. We’re of the same mind that food should be healing, but that doesn’t mean it has to taste medicinal. Case in point: this Well Woman recipe for banana buckwheat bread. This is a great way to put ripe bananas to use, and subbing in coconut oil and almond flour for traditional baking ingredients like processed oils or white flour makes this treat delicious and nutritious.
