Paleo Banana Bread

If you’ve got some ripe bananas lying around in your kitchen then this recipe is perfect. You’ll love the smell of this paleo banana bread when it comes out of the oven. It’s like your own paleo bakery. The bread is lovely and moist yet still holds together well. This recipe is very addictive so you may find it difficult to share!

  4. Pour into bread tin.

  1. Thanks for posting this recipe. I made it last night – truly delicious! It took 45 mins in my oven though (gas mark 3) No idea how the ingredients make the texture of the finished product, but i’m not complaining!! Will be hard to only have small amounts of this at a time (I generally avoid banana) but its definitely something which can help you keep on track with paleo and could easily serve to friends/family without them knowing it was grain and dairy free. Only downside is its quite expensive to make due to the almond butter- any tips on best place to buy this in bigger jars (in Hampshire UK)

  2. This is by far my favourite banana bread recipe! Thanks so much for posting it :)

    @Donna: I make my own almond butter from almond meal and macadamia nut oil (process together in a blender/food processor) to decrease the costs exponentially. In Germany, almond butter is crazy expensive!

  3. Glad you both like it. Unfortunately we haven’t found anywhere that seems to be noticeably cheaper. Even online it costs about £2.50 for a small jar which is similar to Holland and Barrett or the supermarkets. We’ll have to try Laura’s idea and make our own :-)

  4. Wow! This looks fantastic! I am amazed that you can make this without any flour at all. Next time I have a pot of almond butter I will give it a go. Thanks so much for sharing it!

  5. Almond butter is cheaper (as cheap as it gets anyway!) if you buy it online from bodybuilding supplement sites like myprotein and bulkpowders. Around a tenner for a 1kg tub.

  6. I substituted sunflower seeds I had ground up in the blender, plus a tablespoon of oil. It worked beautifully. I’m sure you could use any combination of nuts and seeds you liked, just ground up in the blender, as a cheaper alternative to almond butter.

  7. Costco in UK have a range of paleo products, eg. Coconut flour, almond butter, chia seeds, flax seeds, etc. at a cost of the price of health stores
