Recipe: Paleo Banana Bread

September 4, 2018

How was your labor day everyone? Is it just me or does labor day kind of bum you out? It's like the official closing of summer! Granted its going to be hot here for another month or so, labor day always acts as the bookend of a great summer. 

This summer was on for the record books. We celebrated baby girl, twice. I celebrated one of my best gf's baby. We traveled to Omaha, Arizona, Steamboat Springs, Vail, and Breckenridge. We had visitors, date nights and we set up the nursery. We binged watched Ozarks and Yellowstone and spent time together just us two.

It was a great summer, but I'm so excited for what fall has in store for us. Getting into the spirit of fall to me screams banana bread. Is there anything better than a brisk fall day and the smell of fresh banana bread wafting through the house? I think not. 

This is my mama's recipe, with the flour subbed to make it paleo. You're gonna love it. 

  • 4 bananas, mashed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons oil (coconut, vegetable, ghee)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (regular flour)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
How to Make:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine bananas, eggs, nut butter and oil. 
  3. Once mixed, add in almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and sea salt. Mix. 
  4. Grease a loaf pan and pour your mixture in. 
  5. Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let cool, eat! 
Happy Tuesday friends. Here's hoping your week back after a long week goes quick! 


  1. This sounds so yummy! And it's so easy to make! I will definitely try this!

  2. I've never made a banana bread with almond butter or ghee, but your photos make this look delicious!

  3. banana bread is a perennial favorite of ours.. should try this version too (vidya tiru)

  4. The addition of Almond Butter sounds like it would add a great depth of flavor! Yum!

  5. This bread looks so tasty. I'm got to make this for my niece and nephews, I know that they will like it a lot.

  6. Ooo..this banana bread looks so delicious! With cooler weather ahead, baking season has finally arrived. I'd love to give this recipe a try.

  7. This looks so yummy! I've been wanting to try some paleo recipes and this sounds like the perfect start.

  8. That sounds delicious! I got on a kick where I was buying Whole Foods paleo bread, but it was got really expensive after a while. Honestly, your recipe sounds better because their bread didn't have bananas!

  9. This looks great! SO happy that it's gluten-free :) I love that you added almond butter as well...

  10. I recently got into almond butter and I'm loving it! Never thought about baking with well as almond flour as well. Thanks for the suggestions and this wonderful recipe. Will give this a shot for sure :)
