paleo banana bread

Why does my house smell so amazing right now?! Because I just finished baking a loaf of Paleo banana bread! The smell is just incredible and brings everyone in the house straight to the kitchen.

minion-bananaMy whole family loves bananas, but I am not fan of all the sugar required for most banana bread recipes. That’s why this recipe has no added sugar, just some coconut cream. The addition of extra sugar to our diets contributes to a variety of issues, and I wholeheartedly believe it’s simply not necessary. Bananas and coconut cream are sweet enough on their own, so no extra sugar is needed.

This bread is absolutely fantastic as part of a healthy breakfast. Add some fruit and a cup of coffee, and I’m loving it!

Paleo banana bread is awesome!

Once the bread is cool and you’ve sliced it and are enjoying it, a little extra cinnamon can be sprinkled on top for added flavor. You can also spread a little clarified butter on it, which is delicious! This is a great recipe and it’s pretty easy to make. ENJOY!

How to Make Healthy Banana Bread Blog Post

Over the years I have perfected my banana bread recipe—one of my favorite solutions for using overripe bananas. I use all whole-grain flour or whole-grain flour mixed with white all-purpose flour, and rely as much as I can on the natural sweetness of the bananas to cut the total amount of granulated sugar called for in the recipe. I also like to roughly mash, or chop, my bananas so that there are big chunks of fruit to bite into. I always throw in a handful of toasted chopped walnuts and sometimes I’ll add a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg and a handful of dark chocolate chips.
