Paleo Banana Bread
This is an easy recipe to prepare between other activities, as you can mix up the batter in less than 5 minutes, then sit back and wait for an hour while it bakes in the oven. With only 8 ingredients, this recipe delivers a naturally sweetened bread without grains, dairy, or sugar.
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 2 large overripe bananas mashed
- 2 flax eggs
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract pure, all natural
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a loaf pan with coconut oil. Prepare your flax eggs and give them at least 5 minutes to set.
Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a whisk.
Mash your bananas in a separate, medium bowl. Add the applesauce, flax eggs, and vanilla, and whisk together.
Pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Pour into you prepared pan.
Bake for 40-50 minutes (potentially up to an hour if your oven is as old as ours!), or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes; transfer it onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and enjoy while it's still warm, or enjoy it the next day toasted with almond butter and berries. Enjoy!
If you prefer a richer loaf or less apple flavor, you can swap out 1/4 cup of the applesauce for coconut oil. You can also use 2 whole eggs, beaten, instead of flax eggs.
To make flax eggs, mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water, per egg. Give the mixture 5 minutes to set before adding to the batter.
