If you’re new to my classic Paleo Banana Bread recipe, you’re in for a treat!

This recipe is very close to the original, with a couple small changes.

1.) we need an extra banana for the fancy sliced banana top, because: why not?, and

2.) we’re making an almond butter glaze, because it is just the icing on the cake…or the glaze…on the…banana bread…moving right along.

Baking Tips:

Some folks have made this recipe and find it stays undercooked in the center.

Be sure you’re lining the loaf pan with parchment paper and using a finely-ground almond flour. Also be sure you’re baking the bread until the center rises up and feels firm when you poke it (the edges of the bread should also be golden-brown).

Depending on your oven, and depending on your elevation, this could take a little over an hour.

Feel like unleashing some creativity or changing up ingredients depending on what you already have in your pantry? Here are some…

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Omit the pure maple syrup if you like your banana bread on the less-sweet end.
  • Replace pure maple syrup with honey or coconut nectar. If using honey, keep a watchful eye on the bread, as honey has a low burning temperature and tends go make breads golden-brown and toasty.
  • Swap the almond flour for hazelnut flour.
  • Substitute arrowroot flour for the tapioca flour.
  • If you don’t use arrowroot flour or tapioca flour in your baking, simply replace it with ⅓ cup additional almond flour – just note the bread will not hold together quite as well.
  • Throw in some dark chocolate chips for a crazy rich and gooey adventure.
  • Toss in some chopped walnuts, pecans, or pumpkin seeds.
  • Want to make this with coconut flour? Follow my Coconut Flour Banana Bread recipe for the right measurements! 

Last, but not least, you can make the glaze with peanut butter, my friends….sweet.baby.ray the peanut butter version is GREAT!

Instructions

Bake the Banana Bread:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9" x 5" loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Add all of the ingredients for the banana bread to a blender. Blend until completely smooth. Pour banana bread batter into the prepared loaf pan and use a spoon or spatula to spread the batter into an even layer.
  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes on the center rack of the preheated oven, until the edges of the bread are golden-brown. Turn off the oven and allow bread to sit in the still-warm oven another 10 minutes.
  • Allow bread to rest 1 hour before tugging on the parchment paper to release it from the loaf pan.
  • Drizzle banana bread with almond butter glaze, slice, and enjoy!

Make the Glaze:

  • While the banana bread is baking, you can prepare the glaze. Add all ingredients for the glaze to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave 20 to 40 seconds, or until ingredients are melted. Stir until well-combined. Set aside until ready to use.

Questions and Reviews

    1. Hi Lori,

      You can use full-fat canned coconut milk and heat the glaze on the stove top until it thickens up. Hope you enjoy!

    1. Hi Lori,

      For the glaze, try 1/4 cup almond butter and 2 Tbsp almond milk. It may not be quite as smooth as using the coconut butter, but it should still work. If the glaze turns out thick, simply add more almond milk until it’s a drizzling consistency 😀

      For the batter, add all 3 bananas to the blender. You can use a fourth banana for slicing and placing on top, but that part is optional. Hope you enjoy!!! xo
