I just baked two loaves of this bread (again) for my dad on the weekend, sliced it up and placed two slices (with a little piece of parchment paper between) into individual ziploc bags and froze them. Then, when my dad gets a craving for banana bread, all he has to do is heat them up. Batch cooking at it’s finest.

A Few Extra Tips

This video below walks you through how easy it is to make this paleo banana bread recipe. But here’s a few tips:

Make sure you’ve got bananas that are several days old and they’re all brown and splotchy (which means they’re sweeter inside). I don’t add a lot of extra sugar in this recipe because I think the bananas are sweet enough on their own.Mash the bananas in a bowl and add the remainder of the ingredients. I tend to add the dry ingredients first and then the wet, just so that when I turn on the hand mixer flour is less likely to blow up everywhere. But it doesn’t really matter the order.Beat the dough for about 30 seconds. It’s best if you don’t over beat before pouring into the loaf pan.Banana bread does get quite golden on the outside and given that everyone’s oven temps vary, just keep an eye on your first batch.For a muffin version of this recipe, make sure to check out my Paleo Banana Nut Muffins.
