Bread That Makes Your Kitchen Smell So Good
To start, you’ll need to use a food processor and combine your eggs, bananas, almond butter, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. We like this one because it’s not too big, which is perfect when making just one or two quick recipes.
Pretty much every good paleo bread dough is made with a combination of a wet mixture and a dry mixture of ingredients and this one is no exception. This particular wet mixture gets this recipe off to a great start as these ingredients add in a ton of vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, and healthy fats to the bread. The use of almond flour and almond butter help to keep this recipe both dairy and gluten-free while adding a sweet and nutty hint to the bread, with the added benefit that they both help to lower cholesterol levels as well.

Next you are going to add your dry mix, combining your coconut flour, baking powder, and salt with the wet mix. In keeping with the theme of making sure that paleo baking recipes are completely gluten-free and 100% paleo-friendly, we use coconut flour as another fantastic replacement for wheat flour. Not only is coconut flour a good source of dietary fiber, it also helps to improve digestion and regulate blood sugar levels.

The next step is to add my personal favorite part of the recipe — mix the cinnamon and raisins into the reserved batter. Stir this mix until it’s well combined and then alternate between placing a spoonful of your cinnamon batter and a spoonful of your plain batter into the bread pan. After mixing them together to create a marble effect, you’ll be all set to start baking.
I might be a little bit biased with this recipe since I’m a huge fan of anything with cinnamon in it. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that this cinnamon bread recipe is easily one of the best homemade paleo breads you will ever try. There’s all kinds of different ways you can enjoy it as well — I like to enjoy a warm slice with some melted grass fed butter for a really delightful treat.
P.S. – If you’re a cinnamon lover just like me, then you should definitely check out some of these other great paleo baking recipes that use cinnamon as their main ingredient:
