Banana bread holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I had a nanny who would make a big loaf every Friday afternoon, complete with chocolate chips! She would let me lick the bowl and spatula after she was done and of course we’d be nibbling away at the loaf all weekend long.

Now I make my own banana bread and usually include the chocolate chips, as well as crunchy walnuts for an even yummier texture. Of course it’s usually eaten all up within a few hours of cooling down! There are tons of great options and varieties of banana bread so don’t stop at just one. Check out our list of amazing Paleo banana bread recipes and discover an array of great options!

Top 3 Paleo Banana Bread Recipes

1. Banana Bread (Paleo, Grain Free, Gluten Free)

Paleo Banana Bread Recipe from Slim Palate If you’ve left your bananas to brown just a little too long, don’t even think about throwing them away! They are perfect for Josh’s banana bread loaf recipe with cacao nibs and made from a base of almond and coconut flours. (Special thanks for Josh for allowing us to share the image from his blog, Slim Palate!)

2. Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo Banana Bread from The Healthy Foodie Although the list of ingredients is quite long, there are some interesting components here: Sonia uses coconut milk, applesauce, plantains AND pistachio! Also, a nice blend of flours (coconut, arrowroot and almond) accounts for some of the dry ingredients, alongside chopped walnuts, raisins and more. (Thanks to Sonia for permission to use the photo from her blog, The Healthy Foodie!)

3. Paleo Banana Bread

This beautiful banana bread loaf recommends (optional) chocolate chips and the process is straightforward, with a short ingredient list and simple instructions.

More Great Paleo Banana Bread Recipes

1. ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Paleo’ Banana Bread

Whole dried apricots baked right into the loaf give this banana bread recipe a naturally sweet and different twist!

2. Banana Bread Bombs

Michelle from Cavegirl Cuisine was aiming for banana cookies but ended up with these banana-bread style balls. Beware: it is easier to overindulge when a delicious recipe is turned into delicious bite-size poppers!

3. No Added Sugar, No Grains, Easy and Amazing Paleo Banana Bread

This is the banana bread that I remember from my childhood. Filled with healthy chocolate chips (Kelly links to her favorite brand) and your choice of nuts and/or raisins, the result is a rich flavor that is surprisingly simple to achieve.

4. Almond Flour Banana Bread

Although not nut-free, this banana bread uses healthy almond flour and coconut sugar as its sweetener. Plus, optional walnuts add a crunchy texture that I just love.

5. Almond Flour Banana Bread

Here’s a great egg-free option for those with egg-allergies (and vegans alike!). It also includes healthy chia seeds.

6. Avocado Banana Bread

Adriana from the Living Healthy With Chocolate blog always has very inventive recipes! While this recipe doesn’t include chocolate in any way, the avocados and macadamia nuts must make for the perfect texture and moistness.

7. Banana Bread

This recipe uses a combination of coconut flour, almond flour and obligatory Paleo-friendly chocolate chips.

8. Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Cakies

Using unsweetened almond milk and coconut flour, Taylor makes these delicious banana bread cakies (they look a little bit like biscuits) egg-free!

9. Paleo Banana Almond Butter Bread

Mouth-watering (and Paleo-friendly) chocolate sauce decorates this beautiful banana bread loaf. Food blogger Stacey also includes links pointing to where you can buy her favorite Paleo ingredients used here.

10. Paleo Banana Bread Muffins

These banana bread muffins are a great adaptation – the recipe is simple to follow and all that changes is to pour the batter into your trusty muffin tin. Freezing instructions are also provided.

11. Too Good Banana Bread

If you’re really not into sweeteners (despite them being Paleo-friendly) this is a great option as it uses medjool dates to naturally sweeten this banana bread. Coconut flakes on top don’t hurt either!

12. Tipsy Blueberry Banana Bread

Even better than blueberry pancakes, this banana bread recipe gets blueberries (and spiced rum!) mixed in to make for a very tasty breakfast or mid-morning treat!

13. Black Bottom Banana Bread

With a healthy and heavy dose of chocolate ingredients, this banana bread looks beautiful when cut into slices because half of the batter gets mixed with cacao and chocolate and covers the bottom of the pan first.

14. Grain-Free Banana Bread (Paleo)

I love this recipe because Erin lists so many great ideas for optional add-ons on top of the already delicious, grain-free recipe.

15. Banana and Date Paleo Bread

The dates are great but the star here is the creamy roasted almond butter, which makes for a beautiful texture and yummy, nutty flavor.

16. Almond Coconut Banana Bread

This yummy recipe includes not only almond and coconut flours (as well as coconut oil), but super healthy flaxseed meal as well. With very little maple syrup added, what you have here is not so intense in sweetness but still healthy and delicious.
