With the amount of times that I make this paleo banana bread, it is no secret as to how it's the most popular recipe on my website… EVER!!! Knowing this is quite humbling; and I just love that it gives people a delicious and HEALTHY option. This recipe has been turned into quite a few different dishes and I love hearing all of your variations. Comment below and let me know how you've spiced it up!
Paleo Banana Bread
Like I mentioned, I've made a few variations of this recipe already… just a few! Here are my favorites:
- Mother's Day Banana Bread in Mason Jars
- Chocolate Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread
- Paleo French Toast
- You can make it into muffins
- You can use this batter for Pancakes
- You can also use it for waffles, freeze them and have home-made freezer waffles
Now it's confession time… this recipe was a delicious mistake. I was perfecting a paleo pancake recipe that is now in The Paleo Kitchen (page 95) and asked myself; “Why not Banana bread?”. Every recipe I have seen for Paleo Banana Bread has been loaded with nut flours and only one banana at that!
Newsflash, it is called banana bread for a reason; so I wanted to make it about bananas. And there was no better way then to throw four of them in here. So with that, I give you what I am naming my Paleo Banana Bread. Oh yea… the bananas don't even need to be overly ripe!
You can have this recipe from ingredients to batter and in the oven in 5 minutes, or less. I timed it :) When you are finished baking, slather this in some grass-fed butter and drizzle with raw honey. Maybe add some cinnamon, some chocolate chips, some candied walnuts… the options are endless!
Just typing this post makes my mouth water again. Time to get creative with some more flavor combinations to keep this recipe evolving perfectly. Hey, maybe I can even put together a free e-book on all the different ways you can enjoy this banana bread. Leave me a comment if that is something you would like to see, I will see what I can do. Go get your banana bread going now!!! And as always, enjoy!
