Just before leaving for my camping trip to Moab, UT for Memorial Day Weekend, I baked this loaf of Paleo Double Chocolate Banana Bread and brought it with me to share with my friends.

The consensus among the other eight campers  was the bread was bangarang AF. My friends loved it and ate it right up!

Primarily sweetened with ripe bananas, this healthier banana bread recipe only calls for a touch of pure maple syrup. You can leave out the pure maple syrup or replace it with coconut nectar or a sugar-free sweetener if you’d prefer.

Made with almond flour, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, and a tablespoon of instant coffee granules, this bread is super chocolaty, sultry, and rich.

You’d never guess it is grain-free! I can confirm this statement based on the fact that those who weren’t aware the bread was paleo before trying it were shocked to learn it was!

So let’s bake a loaf!

How to Make Paleo Double Chocolate Banana Bread:

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

Add all ingredients for the banana bread except for the chocolate chips to a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips – you can do as I do and reserve some of the chocolate chips for sprinkling on top of the batter if you’d like!

Transfer the batter to the parchment-lined loaf pan and bake 40 to 55 minutes, until the loaf feels firm when poked in the center.

Remove loaf from the oven and allow it to sit at least 30 minutes before releasing it from the loaf pan, slicing, and enjoying.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Replace the almond flour with hazelnut flour.
  • If you have a nut allergy, follow the base recipe for my Coconut Flour Banana Bread, adding the ½ cup of cocoa powder and ⅔ cup of chocolate chips to the recipe.
  • Replace pure maple syrup with coconut nectar, xylitol, or erythritol.
  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans.

Way too bitter! Needs a little sugar.

Dear Julia, Wow, I do love it! I don't make desserts very often because...you know. I can't believe how awesome this is without sugar and butter. We only waited 15 min to cut it and it was superb. Big Thank You for this recipe.

This recipe doesn't include any oil; how does that change the flavor as compared to traditional banana bread recipes?

Hi Marry! This bread is super moist and perfectly sweet :D The fat content of the almond flour negates the necessity for oil. Hope you love it! xoxo
