Paleo Banana Bread

Although this banana bread recipe is Paleo, you don’t have to eat Paleo to enjoy it! Seriously, this is some of the best banana bread I have ever had – and I’ve had a lot of banana bread! I am going to warn you, though, it is very addicting and it’s hard to stop eating! You won’t even miss all of that glorious gluten. 😉

If you prefer banana muffins, then just pour the batter into muffin tins and reduce the baking time to only 18-22 minutes! It will make a perfectly easy breakfast that can be enjoyed on-the-go.

Best Paleo Banana Bread

Gather up….

3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons very soft or melted coconut oil
2 large eggs
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Get to work….

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare your baking dish of choice  with oil or parchment paper/muffin liners (9 x 5 loaf pan or muffin tins).
  2. Whisk together the baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and both flours. In another bowl, mix together the coconut oil, eggs, bananas, maple syrup and vanilla – make sure everything is very well combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined – do not over mix.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-55 minutes for banana bread or 18-22 minutes for muffins. THIS PART IS VERY IMPORTANT: let the banana bread completely cool before removing from the pan. Otherwise it will crumble all over when you try to take it out.

ENJOY!
