Delicious, fast, easy Healthy Banana Bread Recipe - Paleo - GAPS - Gluten Free

This delicious, healthy banana bread is sooo easy, quick and very satisfying for those like us ( on a natural cavity cure and prevention diet) or any  grain free/gluten free Paleo/GAPS kind of diet. This also works for vegetarians or Weston Price types looking to avoid phytic acid and is sugar free.


Our healing journey has turned me into  a real food cook on our slow travel world tour, so check out our other recipes like  healthy ice cream, calfouti, fermented salsa, pizza, goat cheese, healthy chips, mayonnaise, soda pop, healthy snacks and many more. Also organic food, juicing, making kefir, bone broth, grass fed raw milk, pastured raw eggs and fermented real food as tips that are working for us.

Yummy  Healthy Banana Bread Recipe - Paleo-GAPS- grain free- Gluten Free

I actually prefer to cook this in a round pan, rather than the bread pan for some reason, not sure why, perhaps because to me this is like a special dessert.

Start by preheating the oven to 350F and buttering the baking dish. I use organic, grass fed  butter,  or  organic, cold pressed coconut oil. This is such a simple recipe that I make regularly,  so I will show you in words and photos


4/5 Bananas ( depending on size)

4 Pastured Eggs

4 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil

1/2 Cup Coconut Flour

1 Tablespoon Organic Cinnamon Powder

1 Tsp. Baking Soda

1 Tsp. Baking Powder ( or 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda and 1/2 Tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar)

Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt

Preheat oven to 350 F

Combine bananas, eggs, coconut oil in a  blender and mix well

Then add coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and mix well

Put in oven and bake for about 50 minutes

But is usually a dark brown color when done

homemade paleo ice cream and banana bread

I like to combine it with my homemade paleo ice cream on the weekends as a treat,  but hubs likes it every day as a snack or for breakfast with his raw goats milk.  This works with green bananas ( resistant starch), regular or extra ripe.

This banana bread is not super sweet, but since we are careful to restrict fructose and eat no grains or sugar these days, limited raw unheated honey is the only sweetener we use. Rather than ruining the honey benefits by cooking it in the recipe, if we are in the mood for something super sweet, we drizzle it with the raw honey and might add some grassfed butter or goat cheese for variety.

Mostly though, we just eat it plain and love it, fresh out of the oven!

Looks good though I'm off bananas because I have an "issue" with them - wonder if this would work with zucchini, like zuchini bread? :)
