Paleo Banana Bread
With the amount I make this paleo banana bread, it is no secret it is the most popular recipe on my website EVER!!! Quite humbling and I just love that people have a delicious HEALTHY go to.  This recipe has been turned into quite a few different dishes and I love hearing all of your variations.  Comment and let me know how you spiced it up.

Paleo Banana Bread

So far, I have used this banana bread and variations to make my own variations a few times.  Here are my favorites:

Now here is confession time, this recipe was a delicious mistake.  I was perfecting a paleo pancake recipe that is now in The Paleo Kitchen (page 95) and asked myself why not Banana bread.  Every recipe I have seen for Paleo Banana Bread has been loaded with nut flours and only 1 banana at that.

Newsflash, it is banana bread so I wanted to make it about bananas.  And there was no better way then to throw 4 of them in here. So with that, I give you what I am naming my Perfect Paleo Bread. Oh yea, the bananas don’t even need to be overly ripe.

You can have this recipe from ingredients to banana bread batter and in the oven in 5 minutes, or less. I timed it :) When you are finished baking, slather this in some grass-fed butter and drizzle with raw honey.  Maybe add some cinnamon, some chocolate chips, some candied walnuts, oh my.

Just typing this post makes my mouth water again.  Time to get creative with some more flavor combinations to keep this recipe evolving perfectly.  Hey, maybe I can even put together a free e-book on all the different ways you can enjoy this banana bread.  Leave me a comment if that is something you would like to see, I will see what I can do.  Go get your banana bread on now!!!

  1. Can I make this batter ahead of time and leave it in my fridge for a few hours? I’m worried that the butter will harden or the baking time would have to be longer… Thoughts?

  2. WOW. So much yum. For the last couple of years, I’ve been making a paleo banana bread that I love, but it has honey/maple syrup in it. I’m trying to eliminate or at least reduce my use of sugar (incl honey, which seems to be in so many paleo baking recipes), for the sake of my diabetic husband. Just made this and it is a HUGE hit with the whole family (including my preteen sons, who are usually suspicious of anything paleo). Thank you for a fabulous recipe!

  3. I am really excited with this banana bread…I have just recently started cooking Paleo. I must say it took a little getting used to as far as texture with most baked goods but I sure don’t miss that cannon ball feeling in my gut after eating gluten and sugar. I love this bread..I added about a 1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar just to sweeten it up a bit…my husband actually asked for a peice and he liked it to….that’s amazing….thanks

  4. Has anyone ever added any veggies (zucchini or spinach perhaps?) to this recipe? I want to make this for my son but also want to get some vegetables in there. Any suggestions?

  5. If I leave out the baking powder and just use the baking soda, is it going to rise at all? I am not allowed baking powder on the GAPS diet, even if it is home made.

  6. This is by far the BEST paleo banana bread I’ve ever made and it’s so simple. Not rock hard, dense or dry like all the others I’ve made. I added some Enjoy Life chocolate chips and it’s the perfect snack. Thank you!
