Paleo Banana Bread
Moist, delicious, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free banana bread!
- 2 tbsp. melted and cooled coconut oil
- 3 ripe bananas see picture for level of brown-ness!
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups almond flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder see note for paleo baking powder
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup paleo chocolate chips
Mash the bananas with a fork until its only a little lumpy and relatively smooth.
Combine the coconut oil, mashed bananas, vanilla, cinnamon, eggs and coconut sugar together until it's well combined.
Add the almond flour, pinch of salt, baking soda to the wet mixture and combine until just incorporated.
Optional: Add in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. You can reserve a few to place on top of the loaf before baking as well!
Place the batter in a parchment lined glass loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degress for 55-60 minutes. The top should be a deep golden brown and a toothpick should come out clean. Wait at least 40 minutes before slicing and enjoying!
*Note: If paleo, baking powder is technically not allowed because it contains cornstarch. I don't mind because it is a negligible amount. If strictly paleo you can make an easy 3 ingredient paleo baking powder using this recipe from wickedspatula.com.
