There is certainly no shortage of terrific banana bread recipes to be found online these days. There’s even plenty of specific paleo-friendly banana bread recipes out there. With all of that being said however, I think I might just have the one banana bread recipe to rule them all -- this paleo-style moist banana bread is truly that good. It’s got everything that you could hope for in a freshly baked dessert.

Think banana bread are a dime a dozen? Think again because this just might be the ultimate banana bread recipe. What could possibly be better than a deliciously soft and moist banana bread made with all natural paleo-friendly ingredients? I’ll tell you what could be better -- take that same banana bread recipe and add in a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s paleo baking perfection.

Wet Mix, Meet Dry Mix

Anyone who has baked a homemade loaf of bread before knows that every bread recipe requires two key components: a wet mixture and a dry mixture. This moist banana bread is no exception, so with that in mind, the first thing that you’ll be doing is preparing your wet mixture. You’ll need a food processor for this step, and you’ll be using it to blend your eggs, bananas, almond butter, melted coconut oil, and vanilla.

When it comes to eating fruit, I honestly feel like bananas don’t get the respect they deserve. Everyone always focuses on either fruit that contains a lot of vitamin C, like apples and oranges or the antioxidant rich family of berries. Bananas are no slouch in the nutrition department, though. They contain lots of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and they’re packed full of antioxidants and other bioactive compounds that have been proven to help lower blood pressure and protect you against different types of chronic disease. (1) In addition, there’s also the fact that they just taste plain delicious when used to make banana bread.

With your wet mixture prepared, it’s time to turn your attention to the dry mixture. For this step, simply combine your coconut flour, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Using both coconut and almond flour is a much healthier baking alternative to refined wheat flours, and they both pack in a lot of nutrition and flavor to the recipe. It’s the cinnamon and nutmeg that really take this banana bread to the next level though, at least in my opinion. Not only do both of these spices greatly enhance the flavor of the bread, but they’re also incredibly good for you as well. Cinnamon in particular is held in high esteem thanks to its wide variety of medicinal health benefits, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, anti-cancer, and antioxidant properties. (2)

blending the dough

All that’s left from here is to combine your wet and dry mixtures and then pour the batter into your baking pan before putting it in the oven for 30 minutes. Once you take your first bite of this moist banana bread, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about when I say that it just might be the best banana bread recipe I’ve found thus far. Even if it doesn’t end up topping your list, you’ll still end up with an absolutely delicious loaf of banana bread, so you really can’t go wrong either way with this recipe!

  1. I was surprised at how EASY and wonderfully moist and flavorful this was! I added a tablespoon of honey to sweeten a bit but wasn’t necessary. I may add blueberries sometime and or chopped nuts. This is a perfect banana bread for Paleos or non paleos alike. Could even be a delicious cake dessert.
