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
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….
- 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).
- 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.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined – do not over mix.
- 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.
