Paleo banana bread, made with the perfect combination of almond flour and coconut flour, three bananas and just a touch of honey for added sweetness. Make this easy quick bread batter in the blender!
I’m not afraid to tell you… that I’ve been working on a proper recipe for Paleo banana bread for quite a long time. Baking with Paleo flours like almond flour and coconut flour can be tricky enough. Add high-moisture bananas to the mix and whoa. The first one rose and then sank, that one burned, this other one just tasted awful.
But this one here? Nailed it! Moist and tender, with just the right amount of cinnamon, this banana bread tastes like you remember. And no carb hangover.
The super easy quick bread batter is made in a blender or food processor (you don’t need a high-speed blender). It’s the only way to achieve the proper texture in the finished loaf. It does sort of kill me to make batter in the blender, though. I’m fairly certain that I could make a whole loaf out of all the batter I’ve left behind in those blades. You just can’t rescue every drop!
In this incredibly simple bread, the only sweetness comes from bananas and just 3 tablespoons of honey in the whole loaf. But it’s just enough. And like most good Paleo recipes, even a single slice is quite satisfying. And, happily, the slices aren’t heavy and greasy like some Paleo quick breads can be.
My favorite part of each slice of this bread is easily the chunks of banana. And because bananas tend to have such a strong flavor, you don’t taste almonds even though the bread is made with almond flour. Or coconut, despite the coconut flour. You taste tender, fragrant and utterly satisfying banana bread. With no guilt!
