Banana bread is hands down my favorite baked treat to make whenever I’m feeling like like something sweet but not completely over on the junk side. I usually end up making it at least three or four times every month. So as you can imagine, I’ve tried many different paleo banana bread recipes. Today I’m going to be sharing one such recipe that just might be at the very top of my list of favorites. It makes a chocolate swirl pumpkin paleo banana bread that’s honestly so good, nobody believes me when I tell them it’s totally paleo-friendly. There are absolutely no refined or processed ingredients of any kind that go into this recipe. Thanks to that, you can enjoy this treat totally guilt-free. It’s packed full of healthy fats, antioxidants, and essential vitamins and minerals, and pairs well with coffee or tea—perfect for serving guests.
