Enough of the loaf porn, let’s talk details.

This grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free carrot cake banana bread recipe is a cinch to make. You simply blend the banana bread base in a blender, fold in the carrot cake elements (carrots, raisins, shredded coconut, you catch my drift), and send it off into the ol’ oven for some baking.

A riff off my classic Paleo Banana Bread recipe, this loaf combines the comforting element of your much-coveted banana bread with the tasty features of carrot cake. The banana bread is sweetened mostly with bananas, yielding a lower-carb naturally sweet treat perfect for breakfast, snack or dessert.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll love warming up a thick slice of this bread with some melted butter and a drizzle of almond butter and/or pure maple syrup. Each bite is super comforting, and the bread itself is very filling, making it ideal for tiding you over between meals.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9" x 5" loaf pan with parchment paper.

  2. Add the first 8 ingredients (bananas through sea salt) to a blender and blend until completely smooth.

  3. Fold the remaining four ingredients into the batter (shredded coconut through walnuts) until well-combined

  4. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle with additional shredded coconut and walnuts if desired. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven 40 to 50 minutes, until the center has set up and the edges are golden-brown. Turn off the oven and let bread sit in the still-hot oven for an additional 8 to 10 minutes.

  5. Allow bread to cool at least 1 hour before slicing and serving.

This is hands down my favorite bread. I make it all the time. I love that it’s lower on added maple syrup/honey and lets the bananas shine. I actually have never added the carrots. 🙈. I didn’t have them the first time around and it was so good without that I just make it the same way. One day I’ll add them in. I do add dried cherries or cranberries sometimes. It the perfect r dessert! I toast it as a snack at night. Thank you!

Made this several times. My husband — who is not GF— calls it cake. 😊. While not at all like traditional banana bread, I’m thankful for this recipe that we ALL can enjoy. Thanks for putting it out here for us. BTW. I find I need to bake it 60 to 65 minutes. All ovens are different.

I'm so happy you and your husband like it! Isn't it funny how it tastes like dessert? Bananas are magical in producing tons of sweetness without the need for a lot of added sugar. Thanks so much for the sweet note and your feedback! xoxo
