With the amount I make this 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:
- Mother’s Day Banana Bread in Mason Jars
- Chocolate Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread
- Paleo French Toast
- You can make it into muffins
- You can use this batter for Pancakes
- You can also use it for waffles, freeze them and have home-made freezer waffles
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!!!
