Paleo Banana Bread Recipe


Happy Almost Valentine's Day!

I baked a new grain free, gluten free, paleo banana bread recipe the other day. It was quick, easy, and sweet. (Kinda like me - haha!) I don't necessarily do a ton of paleo or grain free baking, but after baking with a new gluten-free flour blend that I wasn't too impressed with last week, I decided to try a banana bread sans flour.

You can choose to include the chocolate chips or leave them out. I have a few bags of Lily's Chocolate Chips leftover from when they were on sale at Whole Foods over the holidays. Because this recipe is not too sweet, I think the chocolate chips as a nice touch.

I didn't want to make a huge loaf, so this one is actually half size. Feel free to double the recipe and adjust the cooking time to cook for closer to 45-50 minutes. You could also bake it in a mini loaf pan instead of the usual 8" or 9" loaf pan.

Also, it's worth noting that I purchased all of these ingredients at Trader Joe's. I love that store! I get everything from avocados to my face lotion to flowers there.
