I made this paleo banana bread loaf a while back when some friends came over for brunch, you might have seen it on Instagram already, but really wanted to share it here too as it just came out with the perfect ratio of fluffy to denseness expected in a banana bread.
It was a serious hit, and by the end of the day there was no crumb left, bittersweet really as I was really wanted to have the leftovers the next day but it was great that everyone loved it!
This lil’ loaf is
gluten and grain free, if that’s your jam
naturally sweetened with banana and dates
dairy free for all my dairy-less warriors
high in fibre to keep your tummy happy!
a paleo banana bread that you can make for even your fussiest of friends
1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein OR 1 tablespoon coconut flour
½ cup dark chocolate chunks*
Preheat the oven to 185ºC | 350º F and lightly grease a 1L loaf tin.
Add the bananas, dates, coconut oil, eggs, lemon juice and milk into a blender and blitz until combined. Add the remainging ingredients, except choc chunks, and blend again until the batter is smooth. Stir through the choc chunks.
Pour onto the loaf tin and bake for 45min - 50min, covering the top with tin foil if it starts to burn.
Once cool, slice up and enjoy! Will keep for a few days at room temperature and just under one week in an airtight container in the fridge.
* I just roughly chop a dark chocolate bar, but you can also use chocolate chips instead.
