There’s something about the cold weather that makes me seriously crave banana bread! Really, when are bananas not in season? They’re always available at the grocery store (or gas station or drug store) for a reasonable price, I always have some on hand in the freezer, and I’m never without a few overripe bananas sitting on my counter.

However it’s January and lots of you lovely ladies and gents are thinking about living a healthier lifestyle. And I want you to know {like really know} that healthy living & eating does NOT mean sacrificing your favorite foods. Many classic treats can be made healthier, like this Paleo Banana Bread! This version is gluten & grain-free, dairy-free and made with zero refined sugar, but is just as irresistibly delicious as it’s sugar/butter laden counterparts.

And I have to say, that this is the very best Paleo Banana Bread I have ever eaten! Here are a few reasons why I love this recipe, and you will too!

  • It’s so moist and dense, yet has a beautiful crumb!
  • The ingredient list is short, and consists of things you probably always have on hand!
  • It delivers a nutritional punch and is actually good for you!

Seriously people, I’m saying goodbye to all my other banana bread recipes and will only be making this Paleo Banana Bread from now until the end of time.

My daughter Bethany asks for this bread for dessert! Yes folks, she chooses this over brownies and ice cream and popsicles! {Oh my}! The only other time she chooses a healthy dessert over a “regular” one is when I whip up these Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars!

love that I can serve a dessert (or snack or breakfast) that is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo and sweetened with a measly 2 TBS of maple syrup! Yep, total mom win…if I decide to share…because come on this stuff is so good. 🙅🏻 🍌 🍞

Paleo Banana Bread: Substitutions 

Here are a few potential substitutions that can be made in this recipe. I do not recommend altering the amount or type of flour at all. Paleo baking is truly an art, and the ratios & kinds of flours used in this recipe were carefully tested and chosen!

Coconut oil. Grass-fed butter or ghee can be used in place of coconut oil!

Almond butter. I have also made this recipe with cashew butter with super delicious results! You can try it with any nut or seed butter, but I cannot vouch for the outcome {if you do, leave a comment and let me know how it went}!

Maple Syrup. Honey is a totally acceptable and delicious substitution for maple syrup!

Chocolate chips. Are optional, but not really. Use Enjoy Life Foods or Sunspire chocolate chips for allergy friendly options!
