Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo Banana Bread that is sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth and soul! The key to this recipe is to get your bananas as dark as possible. Don’t be afraid of brown bananas – it just means they are sweeter.

Feel free to use any add ons in your banana bread but I love walnuts and chocolate chips. If you are looking for some paleo chocolate options, my favorite is Eating Evolved Cashew Milk. I have yet to find Paleo Chocolate Chips so I usually submit to using any chips I can find or Enjoy Life which are dairy-, soy-, and gluten-free. If you know of any, please share.

Hope you enjoy!


1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup almond butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F. Line a medium-sized loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with coconut oil.
In a small bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon and whisk until there are no clumps.
In a large bowl, mash bananas using a fork and add melted coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla extract. Combine all together using a fork or whisk.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine using a rubber spatula.
Then add the dark chocolate chips (reserve some to sprinkle on top before baking) and chopped walnuts and mix gently. If you find that your chips or nuts sink to the bottom of the pan when baking, coat them in a little almond flour and then add to the mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle chocolate on top. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean!
