This super moist paleo banana bread is gluten-free, dairy-free, and perfectly sweet. This is the best way to use up those brown bananas that are fermenting on your countertop and make a delicious banana loaf that the whole family will love!

This banana bread makes the best breakfast alongside a hot cup of coffee. It’s more nutritious, having only a quarter cup of unrefined coconut sugar and the rest is sweetened only by bananas. It also makes a delightful mid-afternoon snack.

I love adding chocolate chips and walnuts to my banana bread loaf for a chunky, chocolatey loaf that goes perfectly with the banana flavor. But, the loaf is perfect plain as well!

For the banana bread loaf, you need 3 medium brown bananas. The level of brownness of my bananas is shown here. You want them pretty spotty, the browner the better! I buy them pretty green and it took about 2 weeks for them to turn the brown sweet spot you want for great banana bread.

Grab your ingredients and get baking! Your house will smell amazing and you have a delicious, nutritious breakfast ready for the week! ENJOY
