Paleo Banana Bread – No Grains, No Added Sugar 

Paleo Banana Bread

No Added Sugar, No Grains, Easy and Amazing Paleo Banana Bread

I had a bunch of really brown bananas in my fruit basket and knew it was time to either use them or peel and freeze them.


I’ve always loved banana bread, but most standard recipes I remember making back in the day called for an insane amount of sugar and flour that would make my blood sugar go crazy.


My mission was to come up with a paleo banana bread using no added sugar and no grains. To make the cut, it still had to be as delicious as traditional banana bread.  I am excited to present to you with my Paleo Banana Bread!


I love this paleo banana bread for so many reasons. At the top of my list is how easy it is to throw everything together in a bowl and out comes this tasty bread. But the main reason is that there is absolutely no added sugar! It is naturally sweetened with ripe bananas so you can feel great about feeding something healthy to your family. Plus, did I mention how yummy it is?!


I usually end up adding some high quality, dairy, soy, nut free dark chocolate chips to mine for a little extra treat. But it’s equally as tasty without them!

Paleo Banana Bread - No Grains, No Added Sugar!

No Added Sugar, No Grains, Easy and Amazing Paleo Banana Bread
Serves: Makes 1 loaf
Paleo Banana Bread - No Grains, No Added Sugar
  • 4 very ripe bananas*, mashed
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil (Find HERE), or butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup coconut flour (Find HERE) *you must use coconut flour - using another flour will not work!
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • optional add-ins: ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips (I like THESE because they are dairy and soy free), walnuts, pecans, slivered almonds, raisins, etc.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Throw everything together in a medium bowl and mix until combined.
  3. Pour into a lightly greased (use coconut oil or butter for greasing) bread pan.
  4. Bake for about 45 - 60 minutes or until center is set and top is golden. Enjoy!
*Your bananas should be extremely brown, almost to the point when you would throw them away or freeze them. If they are not overly ripe, your bread will not be as sweet and probably not taste as good. If you are using non-ripe bananas, you should add about a ⅓ cup of maple syrup to the batter.

    We made this today with all of the mixins. The taste is great, and you definitely don’t need sugar if you have ripe bananas. I did find that you probably want to bake it a little longer than the recipe. We baked it about 56 minutes, and when we finally cut into it, the bottom of the loaf was still pretty soggy. That will certainly not stop us from eating it all, it just means it should probably be refrigerated. Thanks for the fun recipe!

      Thanks, Virginia for the feedback!!

    • Primally Inspired

      After hearing some comments about it not getting all the way done, I decreased the coconut oil or butter to 1/3 cup and it turned out a lot less “soggy” – I updated the recipe to reflect the change. Hope that helps! 🙂 Thanks for letting me know 🙂

      • Avatar

        Soggy mess. Followed recipe and even mixed dry ingredients first, then wet ingredients, then folded together and put in pan. Baked almost an hour. Soggy mess, A waste of good chocolate, bananas, nuts, flour. Throwing this one away.

        • Primally Inspired

          Hi Greg, don’t throw it away just yet! Stick it in the fridge for a few hours/overnight to see if that helps. If it doesn’t, I’m so sorry it didn’t work out for you.

          • Avatar

            I’m trying this for the third time. This time I’ve eliminated one egg and upped the flour a bit. Lets see if that works a bit. Even with the decrease in coconut oil to 1/3 C it was still soggy. I hope this works or I’m on to something else – I don’t like “cold” bread, the fridge is not an option. Toasting it when it was soggy did help quite a bit though.

          • Avatar

            I thought this recipe was delicious! I wonder if the previous comment about a measure of bananas is better than 4 as well as I had an extra 1/2 and threw it in. Moist but not soggy. As I bake more and more, it becomes easier to check the consistency of recipes and alter as needed so the best piece of advice I have is – have FUN and if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again 🙂

          That sure is a nasty attitude, dont give up so easy next time. Your mind is on a one way road, start thinking outside the box. Mine came out perfectly fine with how the recipe went, so i’m thinking its something YOU did

    Love the recipe! I added in all the options (nuts and chocolate) and it was delicious. I did not miss the added sugar one bit!

  7. Primally Inspired

    Thanks Diana, Max and Toni!
    I’ve been hearing multiple people needing to bake it for longer than I have stated. Mine was done at the 45 minute mark, but some people had to cook it for over an hour! If the top starts to get too done, just pop some foil over it and let it continue cooking until the center is all the way set.

    Thanks for all the comments! I love hearing from you all and getting your feedback! I just updated the recipe and made a slight change. I lessened the amount of coconut oil to 1/3 cup (it was 1/2 cup). That will help the bread to be not as “soggy” as some of you had mentioned. I made it this morning with the new change and it was perfect! Hope you like it 😀

    • Avatar

      For sure u need to reduce the coconut oil that is what’s making it soggy and take an egg out also. I made muffins the other day the were soggy and I reduces and it will work cause oil is oil. Thanks T.B.

    • Avatar

      I made it per the latest adjustments & it came out perfectly. I think I will have to try it w some nuts, and raisins or something of that sort. I didn’t have ripe bananas so I added some raw honey. I must confess, a lil sugar too, as I was too low on honey @ the time. I know it will be great w/o the sugar next time. I also used some Enjoy Life chocolate chips in mine. It disappeared quickly. My (almost) 6 year old was begging for it today. So it looks like I will be making this quite often. I love that it’s ingredients I keep around most of the time too.

      Think I’m going to have to get some smaller loaf pans so everyone can have their own. I’m sure it probably will bake better that way. My Momma was famous for her bread. Everyone loved getting smaller, more individual loafs. I do remember her mentioning that the bread came out better that way. Glad to get the reminder. Thanks for the comment Dara! In fact thinking about my Mom, I may just have to make some honey butter. The best thing to wake up to was always her fresh baked bread slathered w some honey-butter. YUMMM!!

    The first time I made this it was WAY too soggy. So today I made it with a few changes:
    1. I added 1/3 cup honey
    2. I threw in a handful of chopped walnuts and a handful of blueberries
    3. I DOUBLED the coconut flour to a cup

    PERFECT after 45 minutes at 350.

    • Primally Inspired

      Thanks Sally for the input! Sounds like you came up with a great suggestion for those that were getting soggy loaves. Walnuts and blueberries sound so good, too – I’m definitely going to try that! I’m curious – did you use the initial recipe of 1/2 cup of coconut oil or did you use 1/3 coconut oil when it was soggy? I lessened the amount of coconut oil and haven’t gotten soggy loaves myself, so I’m curious to know if you were still getting soggy loaves with the reduced coconut oil. Thanks!!

      • Avatar

        When I did it the first time I didn’t use coconut oil; I used 1/3 melted butter, and also a little honey. It was way too soggy.

  23. Avatar

    Mine hasn’t been coming out soggy at all. I’ve been making it just as is with 1/3 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup coconut flour. We love it. I’ve made it at least 5 times now and always add something different to each batch. The last time it was blueberries and next time I’m thinking I’ll add a bunch of nuts and maybe some dried cranberries.

  24. Primally Inspired

    I guess ovens vary and I’m sure the different altitudes have something to do with it, too. Sally made a great suggestion for those coming up with soggy loaves. She said she doubled the coconut flour (to 1 cup) and added 1/3 cup honey and it came out perfect. So try her suggestion if you are coming up with soggy loaves! I make about a loaf a week and am still coming out with great results per the recipe, so I guess it just depends on the oven, too.

    Oooo…this is so yummy !
    I pulled it out of the oven and my toothpick came out clean @45mins.
    I Had to stop myself from eating more. Wow, so delicious !

    I added chopped pecans. I only had 2 black bananas and 2 brown spotty bananas ( not really as ripe). I didn’t add any maple syrup or honey and I think the sweetness level is just fine for me.

    I can’t wait to try your other recipes 🙂

    I just made this recipe. Seeing as I only had three bananas I added 1/3 cup of apple sauce for the missing banana. I had to bake it for ten minutes longer with aluminum foil on top so as not to let the top get too dry. Needless to say, it turned out great. Thank you for the recipe. I do have one question pertaining to coconut flour and almond flour recipes … what is the best way to store the finished product? I am still pretty new to grain free eating.

    • Primally Inspired

      Awesome and great idea on the applesauce!
      Whenever I make something with eggs or fruit I store it in the fridge (like this banana bread). I make almond flour choc chip cookies that I store just wrapped up on the counter.

      I don’t know the “technical” answer, but anything with eggs or fruit get stored in the fridge at my house – hope that helps!

        I baked mine as muffins and freeze them so they ddo not all get eaten in one day. They froze well and thawed/reheated beautifully.

    Do you think this recipe would work with bananas that have been frozen? I only have one ripe banana, but several frozen that I was planning to thaw out.

    Can this recipe be made vegan?

    • Avatar

      Yes, this can easily be made vegan. Use apple sauce or some other egg substitute like you would for any other vegan baking recipe. You can find egg substitutes at any health food store. Just be wary that this recipe can become soggy so you might want to read through these posts to adjust. Another thought is eliminate the eggs and add an additional banana?

  35. Avatar

    Can there be a replacement for the eggs, and can it be done raw like putting it in the dehydrator?

  36. Avatar

    This bread turned out to be the closest to regular banana bread that I’ve baked so far!! I added 1/2C chopped walnuts and 4 crumbled pieces of cooked bacon 😉

    Thank you!!

  37. Avatar

    Thanks for an awesome and easy recipe! I’ve been trying to use more coconut flour and less nut flours in my baking, and I really love your coconut flour recipes. My son has a nut-free classroom, so I can’t send any of my almond flour baked goods to school. I decided to try them in a muffin pan instead of a loaf pan, and cooked them for 30 minutes. I added 1/3 cup honey, increased the butter to 1/2 cup and the flour to 1 cup and they were perfect!!! So glad I found your site! Thanks again

  38. Avatar

    Your website is amazing!!!! I just completed the banana bread recipe with one change, I put it in muffin pans!! It cut down on cook time and made it easier for me to put in the kids lunch boxes. I am going to pass this on to everyone in my law enforcement community. Thanks and keep the recipes coming.

    This was so good I’m currently hoping no one in my house eats the perfectly yellow bananas on the counter so that they turn brown and I can make some more! I made mine with walnuts and enjoy life choc chips!

    Hi Kelly, I found your site while surfing for healthified Banana or blueberry bread, I’m so glad I came across it! 😉 What are your thoughts on Trader Joe’s new all purpose flour in place of the coconut flour? I can’t bite the bullet and make the $12+ purchase, I do however have brown rice flour as well, but I find it too grainy for my taste! Thanks I appreciate your opinion!!!

        OMG!! Delicious! Awesome recipe, very tastey! I made a few adjustments with adding whey protein, two whole eggs and 1/2 cup of egg whites, organic applesauce, and rolled oats. Made them in muffin tins and cooked them for 35 minutes. Great way to use up bananas and very yummy snack. Thank you!

    I just made this bread and instead of eggs to make it vegan I used 2 tbsp. ground flax with 2 tbsp. water. Came out DELICIOUSLY!

      Alexa, that is so great to know – thank you for that! We just found out my husband is allergic to eggs and I’ve really been struggling trying to find egg substitutes for all my egg recipes. He loved this banana bread so I’m definitely going to try that. Thank you again 🙂

        Thnx for taking time to answer my question. I made ‘your’ cake tonight with baking powder. It came out great! Because my banana’s where not brown I did use 1 tbs of honey and some raisins. Also 3 eggs instead of 4. My DH is in love with this stuff! And so am I. Being in Europe I had some difficulty deciding on the measurements (no cups here lol), but it came out great! Will make this one often. Thank you so much for such a great recipe!!!

    OK, I don’t even cook… or bake. I can burn water. But I’m sick of putting expired bananas into my compost bin. THIS… I will make! And before this… did people really add sugar to regular banana bread (considering they started with sweet over-ripen bananas?!). Thx. for posting this.

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Neil! So glad you can use those ripe bananas now 🙂 And yes, you would not believe the amount of sugar in some banana bread recipes. I’ve seen recipes with 2 cups or more – it’s crazy! I’m glad you agree that ripe bananas are plenty sweet on their own. Good luck with the recipe and hope you like it.

    Soooo Delicious! Thank you for creating and posting this recipe. Although I have been using coconut oil for some years now, this is my first experiment with coconut flour and I was delighted with the result! To me it tastes fluffy and buttery, despite the fact that no butter was used. I am pregnant and I have a two year old, and nothing makes me happier than to be able to serve my kiddos a delicious, healthy treat!

    I just recently started looking in to Paleo, and this was my first grain free bread ‘experiment’. I was a little unsure of what kind of results coconut oil and coconut flour would bring. Well, I can say, this recipe was Super EASY and YUMMY!! I made it last week and it disappeared quickly. We first tried it right out of the oven, and it was a little oily, but, then when we let it ‘cure’ overnight, the texture was perfect, very light and moist. I did end up overcooking it a little, it was in a 350 oven for 45 min as directed, perhaps the type of pan makes a difference, I used a metal bread pan. I tried it again yesterday, and shortened the cooking time to 35 min and that was perfect. Thanks!

    • Primally Inspired

      Awesome, Mars! Coconut oil and flour are the bomb 🙂 Thanks for feedback with the texture and times, too. It seems like everyone’s oven (or pan like you mentioned) is a little different. Some people need a shorter cooking time and some people needed a much longer time – can’t win. LOL. Glad you liked the bread!!

    I’ve made this recipe twice (the first time, i messed up and didn’t use the correct amount of flour – i used 1/3 c by accident!). Today I didn’t quite put a full 1/3 cup of coconut oil and added 1 Tbsp of almond flour and cooked it 45-50 min and its still a bit too “moist”. I will do as suggested and put it in the fridge to firm up because regardless, this recipe is AMAZING!!!!

    Hi 🙂 I noticed a lot of the comments mentioned sogginess, so instead of a loaf pan I used a glass 9in round pan. It came out perfect in 35min! I didn’t change anything else about the recipe, just the size of the pan 🙂 It didn’t end up being as sweet as we like, but a slice that’s still warm is perfect with a drizzle of dark maple syrup! Yumm! Kids wouldn’t stop eating it! Thanks for a great recipe!

    This is the very first baked paleo recipe I’ve ever done, and my first experience with coconut flour. I followed the directions to a T using an 8×4 metal pan, and the exact ingredients listed (other than they weren’t organic, grass fed, or free range due to limited access as I live in the Arctic 😉 but it came out fairly soggy. I won’t be let down though! Next time I try this I will do it in muffin cups instead.

    • Primally Inspired

      Ok, good! It seems that the people who were having soggy loaves, had much better luck with a smaller size pan/muffin cups. I’ve been loving this as muffins – quick and easy to grab and go 🙂

    I wonder if you were to measure the bananas and have a set amount, like a cup of mashed bananas instead of say 4, if that might make the difference. If it is perfect for some and soggy for others, maybe the bananas vary in size so much that it is this difference that is causing the sogginess. I just read the recipe and comments and am anxious to try it. Thanks.

      Since my very-ripe bananas were pretty big, I decided to use only 3-1/2, based on your suggestion. I added some mini choc chips (Enjoy Life brand) and some chopped walnuts. I baked it in a silicone loaf pan on the convection setting in my oven (the conversion lowered the temp to 325). When the timer went off, it was pretty brown, but I put some foil over the top and left it in another 10 minutes. It’s moist, but cooked all the way through. It’s absolutely delicious! Mmmmm, love it.

    I am making mine now with the 1/3 cup of butter (my sister does not particularly like coconut and the oil makes the taste stand out loud! LOL). Anyway, I am using the small bread pans that has 8 in the set. I believe that the problem with the soggy bread is one the type of pan they are using and two the age of the oven. Each oven cooks differently (no matter what the temp is). Also, the pans cook food differently. If you have a glass bread pan, it will cook very fast. If you have dark metal pan it tends to cook slower. Then there is the in between and even the size of the pans. Just a tip for you. I have been baking since I was 9 and started out with a really old oven (cause my grandparents raised me). I have learned over the years that you have to work with what you have. Hence the info I offered. 🙂 Hope this helps. I will let you know how it turns out! 😀

      Thank you so much for those tips, Amber!! You are so right on working with what you have 🙂 Hope the bread comes out great for you!!

      Great comment. First, this recipe came very highly recommended from a grain free and wheat allergy (not celiac) friend and I’m so looking forward to trying other recipes (we are grain free and extremely limited sugars, no matter the type/source – so banana bread is definitely an infrequent special dessert – that said I suspect that husband will be wanting it frequently after sneaking a bite while it was cooling). First time making this recipe but I’ve been baking no-grain for several months. I did not adjust anything except my frozen brown bananas were above average size so used only three. Bread is still cooling in garage fridge where I hid it from husband. I think it is going to be perfect………. I used aluminum 8″ X 4″ pan, in counter top oven, 350 degrees (I usually up the temp and time on most recipes but I did not up the temp this time.). It took about 80 minutes till the top/center was not mushy.

    I have recently switched to a gluten free diet and was so excited to come across this recipe because I always have leftover bananas! I also love that it’s sugar free! (I think we’ve become so accustomed to eating over-sweetened foods, that we’ve forgotten what foods are SUPPOSED to taste like!!) I made this last night and it was absolutely divine! The only substitution I made was 2 of the eggs for a flaxseed slurry (1 tbsp ground flax with 3 tbsp boiling water = 1 egg substitution… and let sit about 10 mins until it had a gel like consistency). I baked for 45 minutes and it did sink a little when I took it out of the oven, and it was definitely on the softer side of done. This didn’t affect the taste at all (who likes dry banana bread anyway?!) But next time I might try up to an hour with a little foil over top. I also added sliced almonds and a few chocolate chips. YUM! Can’t wait to get home tonight and have another piece! Thanks for a great recipe 🙂

    Yummo!! I made these as muffins tonight in my silicone muffin tray. Took about 20-25 mins on 180 degrees celsius (I am an Aussie). Someone (ahem, not me!) must have eaten some eggs and I only had 3 eggs left but still turned out just fine. My bananas were not too overripe so i used about a tablespoon of maple syrup. I just ate a muffin warm out of the oven, cut in half with some gee spread in the middle. Absolutely divine. Thanks for your amazing website and recipes. 🙂

    I really want to try this recipe. I have both coconut oil and Kerry Gold Butter. I also have ghee. It seems the flavor would be different with coconut oil vs. butter. Has anyone tried both, and if so do you have a preference?

    I just made this banana bread and it is super yummy! I used a 12 count muffin tin and baked for 32 minutes on 350 degrees and they’re perfect! I wasn’t patient enough to wait for my bananas to ripen a lot so I used 4 fresh bananas and added in 1/6 cup pure maple syrup and 1/6 a cup of raw honey to add sweetness. Will definitely make again!!

      I have made this recipe a few times using a loaf pan and have had to cook it for about 60 min. I decided to try in a 12 serving muffin tin today and was able to reduce cooking time to 30 min. I also raised the temp to 375
      , which I have done with a couple of kelly’s other recipes (I think my oven doesn’tt get as hot as its supposed to). Anyway they came out great and were a crowd pleaser as usual. 🙂

    I am so pleased with this recipe. I made it with 1 1/4 cups of pumpkin puree i had left over. Forgot to add maple syrup. included roasted slivered almonds and dried cranberries (maybe not so paleo but I’m only gluten -free) and it is delicious.

    I made these tonight and they smell/taste so good! I have diabetes but love sweets so I’m always looking for new, little-to-no added sugar/healthier recipes! This was my first time baking with coconut flour & coconut oil (had no idea such existed until I came across your recipe on Pinterest). I decided to make them in muffin tins so I could do some plain and some with pecans. I baked them at 350 for 35 min. like the other commenters, but they did come out a little oily on the bottom. I was still so impressed by them nonetheless! Just wanted to say thank you for “inventing” this healthy version of banana bread! 🙂

    I definitely want to try this! I’ve been craving Banana Nut Bread since I made a candle with that scent recently. Lets see if it passes the hubby test. He is very suspicious of anything I cook these days and is very reticent to try anything that is different. I like to make them in muffin tins. Can anyone tell me how much to fill them and how many muffins this recipe will make? Thanks!

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Grace! Hope you love them and that they pass the hubby test 🙂

      When I bake them in muffin tins, I fill them almost full (a little more than 3/4 of the way) and bake them for around 22 minutes. It makes about 15 muffins for me.

    Thank you for the recipe. I only used 1/4 cup oil, and 1 cup coconut flour, made them into muffins. I cooked them for 35 minutes and they were perfect. I did cover them with foil after they browned so they wouldn’t burn.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious! I just love it. Have tried it with walnuts and chocolate chips. My husband likes it too but his only complaint is the “baking soda” taste.

    I’m happy to report my banana bread turned out great! I used a little less coconut oil and maybe 1/4 cup of date paste to add some sweetness. I baked it for 50 minutes until the top felt firm. Love it! So does my 1.5 yr old!
    Thank you!

    I poured mine into three mini loaf pans (approx 7″ x 3.5″ in size) and they were perfectly done in about 30 minutes. I added a few pecans, walnuts, chocolate chips & a couple of chopped dates. I also cut back a bit on the coconut oil to 1/4 cup. Mmmm… Incredibly yummy. My favorite banana loaf ever! Thanks so much for sharing these recipes as well as your other tips for health.

    It took me several days to find the coconut flour. Made the bread this evening just as instructed, I understand the “soggy” part now, but it wasn’t soggy like bread in milk. It was just a bit more moist than I had expected. But overall it is a great bread. As a new diabetic, I’m on a constant search for new recipes. So thankful I came across your site.

    • Primally Inspired

      Thanks for the feedback, Tara! The bread will “cure” after a few hours and get less moist. I think it’s the perfect texture after a few hours, so it will be even better tomorrow morning 🙂 So glad you are here and I hope you can find some more recipes that you like!

    I can’t thank you enough for this recipe! I just finished my first round at them, and oh my goodness … I’d be none the wiser that they don’t contain conventional ingredients if I didn’t make them myself. I’ve had a hard time adjusting my palate to coconut flour in regards to baked goods. They were fluffy and moist, like conventional flour would yield. I did them up as mini muffins because we are always on the go and we have toddler, no muss to fuss finger foods are great for us to have on hand; these far exceed the requirement. I threw in some maple syrup and raw cacao powder, baked at 20 minutes in a gas oven. It may be my new recipe for chocolate cake! Thanks again, cheers!

  110. Avatar

    i made this for the first time today and am thrilled with the results!! i ended up eyeballing the batter consistency and adding a bit more coconut flour after i added a little maple syrup because the batter seemed too liquid. i think if people are not afraid to mess around a bit with the recipe, they will get amazing results too!
    i’m so happy i made this, it’s the perfect amount of sweet and delicious. next time i’ll try coconut oil instead of butter (i didn’t have any coconut oil) and someone said raw cacao- what a great idea. thank you so much for the recipe!! next: lemon bread!!

    I always have to keep a loaf of this on hand. It is getting to be quite a talent to buy bananas at JUST the right time so that they’re ready to use when the previous loaf is consumed! I add paleo choc chips and raisins and LOVE it! I do have to bake it 15 min longer than the recipe states, I just lightly touch the top before I take it out of the oven to make sure it is no longer ‘jiggly’. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe, it is a must have for me. 🙂

    I used your recipe the other night and thought I had enough of all the ingredients. Turns out that I only had 2 eggs instead of 4. I made due with what I had … used the 2 eggs and increased the 1/3 cup of coconut oil by at least a couple of tablespoons. Instead of using a loaf pan, I used a jumbo muffin tin lined with paper liners. Baked for about 26 minutes using convection. They were a little dark on top and almost “soggy”, but still came out really good. I put them in the refrigerator overnight and brought one to work with me. After sitting on my desk for a few hours it was at room temp and perfectly moist. I’d say it worked out for me even though I didn’t have enough eggs.

    So happy that I found a banana bread recipe that I can use. First time making the bread it was awesome with added pecans – Second time making the bread I only had 2 bananas so I added 1/2 an avocado – 3eggs and it turned out great! I also add unsweetened coconut flakes on top before baking. This is my go to recipe for banana bread.

    I love this recipe, I make them in muffin size for my daughter. She loves loves them. I was wondering if I can use frozen bananas? I had 2 that were going bad and didn’t have enough to make a batch now I have accumulated about 5 frozen bananas. Will it taste the same? Thank you!

    I made this last night, and it has to be, by far, the best banana bread I’ve ever made. It’s so moist (not soggy!), and smooth, it just glides over your tongue. My husband has just declared it his favourite! I did put in a small amount of chocolate bits, but didn’t add any maple syrup, and the sweetness is perfect without it. I dare say, even without the choc bits, it would be a complete hit….

    Thanks so much x

    Someone posted this on Facebook a little bit ago and I had to make it immediately. Of course, I had no bananas and no eggs. I ended up using a can of pumpkin and 2 Tbls of chia seeds with 6 Tbls of water. Could not wait an hour for it to cook so I put it in a 9×9 pan for 35 min. Just so good…I’m elated! On my fourth day of no grains and no sugar. This was a life saver. I added 2 Tbls of enjoy life chocolate chips because I was afraid the pumpkin would not come close to the sweetness of the banana. Anyway, it was great. Can’t wait to try the lemon cake at the bottom of this post!

  136. Avatar

    I followed your recipe exactly about a week and a half ago (I made muffins instead of a loaf) and found that it was not quite sweet enough for me. That being said, since I am more sensitive to sugars/sweetness than my husband, I KNOW it would not be sweet enough for him.

    However, I still wanted to try again and still without adding any extra sweetener. So, yesterday, I made more banana muffins with the following changes:

    1.Decrease oil by half (I have yet to try it with apple sauce instead of oil, but that is next on my list of experiments)
    2.Increase number of bananas to 5
    3.Decrease salt to 1/8 tsp
    4.Increase coconut flour to 2/3 cup
    5.Baking time for muffins was about 35 min

    With these changes, my husband and I both agree that these are the best banana bread muffins I have ever made! I’m so glad I was able to do still do it without adding any honey or maple syrup. Thanks for the inspiration! (^_^)

    Hi there! Love this recipe! Have you tried roasting the bananas before making the bread? It caramelizes the bananas and adds a wonderful depth of flavor and sweetness. I roast mine for about half an hour at 400 then put all the gooey goodness into the mixing bowl, let it cool for a bit before adding eggs and remaining ingredients… It’s amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

    This Looks great, just popped it in the oven, and hoping it doesn’t turn out soggy like other posters mentioned. Just a quick friendly suggestion….you said you lessened the coconut oil to 1/3 of a cup, and it was better. But you initial recipe still states 1/2 cup…soy ou should maybe change that in your ingredient list. 🙂

    I haven’t tried this yet, but plan on doing so. With all the comments about it being soggy, I would slice it into loaf bread size pieces, and then bake it at 350 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes, or until it reached the texture I wanted. This would be better than tossing it out. I despise wasting food.

    I’m at a higher altitude and have had to bake it longer but I’m working out the bugs for my location and oven. This morning I did 4 mini-loaf pans and it cooked in an hour with a moist-but-cooked consistency. I did get a weird taste on a couple of batches and I think it was old baking soda; no issues with a fresh, new box.
    Thank you so much for bringing “bread” back into my life in such a sweet way!

    I made your banana bread recipe again today … always so good. I decided to change it up a little by adding 1/4 cup of organic honey (from the Farmers Market in Solvang, CA), and 2 tablespoons of organic cacao powder. Then baked it in an 8×8 pan … better than I expected … I’m really happy with the finished product. My daughter and her husband came over and loved it too.

    This. Was. Fantastic. I mean, seriously fantastic! Our family is gluten free, and I’ve been experimenting with Paleo recipes. This is, by far, the easiest, and most delicious, gluten free banana bread I have ever made. I read the other comments, and made adjustments accordingly. For instance, I used a 9×5 loaf pan. I think that size is perfect for a consistent baking time. It baked for between 40-45 minutes and the texture is great. Nice and moist without being wet. I also could not wait another day for my bananas to become overripe. Seriously, who has to WAIT for bananas to turn brown?!? Well, I couldn’t. So I opted to add the 1/3 cup of maple syrup to the batter. For the ripeness of my bananas, I’m glad I did, otherwise, I don’t think it would have been sweet enough. I think, too, that the texture and baking time might vary depending on the ripeness of the bananas, as well as the pan size. This is a keeper, for sure! Next up, will be your blueberry muffins…it’s blueberry picking time here in the Northeast

    Since bananas come in all different sizes, could you give me a
    cup measure after the bananas are mashed.

    I made the recipe today, using 4 organic bananas which are normally on the smaller size. These 4 gave me 1 1/3 cups mashed.

    The bread is delicious, very moist. The family loved it. I plan to make more tomorrow, because I don’t think this loaf will last long.

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Margaret! I’m so glad to hear your family loved the banana bread! This recipe is extremely forgiving. I’ve used as many as 5 1/2 bananas and I’ve used as little as 3. There were times I used 4 big bananas and other times I had 4 small bananas. And each time, it has come out wonderfully (I make this at least once a week). So, as crazy as it sounds, the cup measurement really doesn’t matter 🙂

    Thankyou Primally Inspired.
    This cake is absolutely beautiful, not far from a ‘normal’ banana bread. The flavour was exceptional n it was so easy to make. I added some crushed walnuts n it was perfect. Baked for 45mins exactly

    Just made these tonight with my daughters (aged 2 and 4) for our dessert. We made them into muffins and added 1/4 cup of honey because our bananas were not all brown and overly ripe. This came out sooooo yummy, moist, decadant, and perfectly sweet. My girls wanted to sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top, so we indulged :). Baked at 350 for 30 min, and we mixed the wet and dry ingredients separately before combining. We also made sure the eggs were at room temperature before adding the oil so the coconut oil wouldn’t clump up. I am now throwing out my old banana bread recipe, and this will be our go-to banana bread from now on! Thank you 🙂

    Hello! I’ve been trying to find healthy recipes for sweets/breads for myself and my mom because she’s literally stopped eating almost all kinds of bread to avoid raising her blood sugar, but wanted to find something she could still enjoy (cause that is some serious self control to always have haha). I just stumbled upon your website after looking for coconut flour recipes and this made 12 perfect little golden muffins! I added a little extra coconut flour (maybe about a tablespoon?) and a teeny bit of water cause it looked really dry before the oil. They took about 35 minutes to cook and they’re so good!! Literally melt in your mouth… Bananas weren’t completely ripe, but they still gave the muffins the slightest sweetest and I know my mom is going to love them!

    For those who had soggy muffins, I would recommend the extra tablespoon of flour and let the mixture soak a little so the flour can absorb the mixture! Just throwing it out there, but anyways thank you so much for sharing – I’ll be sure to check out more of your recipes 🙂

    I’ve made the bread several times and have now made the same recipe into muffins twice. Everyone just loves this recipe. Have on occasion added extra coconut flour depending on the reipeness of the bananas, each time it has turned out great. I beat the eggs first just to get some volume, then start adding the rest of the wet, then the dry. This recipe is our go to favourite. I can’t keep muffins around very long at all. Today I’ll make several bathes, trying to get some for the freezer, so I have some on hand.Next I’m going to try your Zucchini bread. I can’t have gluten, dairy or refined sugars, so your recipes are great for me. I too use Medjool dates as a sweetener in other recipes.
    Keep the recipes coming. Thanks!

    Are people using a dry or liquid measuring cup for the coconut oil? Today’s a hot day so mines melted… I’m wondering if that’s why mine came out a little more soggy and the top browned at 40 minutes :/

    I made this today following your recipe, adding chocolate chips & it turned out wonderfully! I will definitely make this again. I like that it uses coconut flour instead of almond flour. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Primally Inspired

      So great to hear, Terri! 98% or more of my recipes use coconut flour – I think I only have 1 recipe out of the hundreds here that use almond flour. I’m definitely a hardcore coconut flour fan 🙂

    This bread is a staple in our house. We make it in muffin tins weekly. We add in walnuts, grated chocolate & raisins that bake on top. love, love, love it!!! would you have a nutritional profile on this recipe?

    Great recipe, fast and easy. Used small eggs and coconut oil, will try butter next time. Could not wait for the bananas to go brown, so used what I had available. Will be even better with riper bananas. Great texture and consistency. First time coconut flour baker, and I bought it specifically to try this recipe out. This is a recipe I will now be baking with for many years to come!!!

    Very good recipe!! What I have learned when working with coconut flour is that you want the batter to be the consistency of mashed potatoes, sounds weird but if it’s wetter and you add more coconut flour to make it the consistency of mashed potatoes your breads and muffins that are made iwith coconut flour will come out not too soggy. Hope that helps someone.

    I don’t understand the negative reviews, honestly I could kiss you! My son has autism and is THE pickiest little eater. He loves your recipe, made as muffins. I use 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup grass fed butter, and the flavor is just divine! Thank you so much for sharing this, it has made life without donuts so much sweeter. 🙂

    • Primally Inspired

      Awwww, thank you Angie! Your comment makes my day! I think it’s the best compliment to get the thumbs up from picky kids 🙂 Another recipe that he might like are the pumpkin muffins. I originally started my blog for my sister to help her have easy healthy recipes for her 4 very picky kids (one has autism, too!). But they all love the pumpkin muffins as much as the banana bread so I’m thinking your son might really enjoy that one, too. Here’s that recipe if you are interested >> http://www.primallyinspired.com/paleo-pumpkin-spiced-muffins/
      And thanks so much again for your compliment! <3

    I just made this and I love it! I have never used coconut flour before so had no idea what to expect. I baked mine in a baking dish and next time I will turn my oven down a bit (think it is a bit hot) and it will be perfect! It really is tasty and will make a great breakfast. I added some raisins; next time I will try some nuts. Thanks

    easy peasy, and turned out very well for me. any idea if this recipe can be done without baking soda?

    I just wanted to leave a review to let others know that this recipe is a keeper in our house! We just recently got away from highly processed foods so that is saying a lot! Oh, and my husband, who is very picky said he loved them!! I went exactly by the recipe (used coconut oil instead of the butter). I looked over some of the reviews first and decided to make them as muffins. So now I have 2 recipes that I use that call for coconut flour..this one and your pumpkin roll that is super yummy! Do you have any other coconut flour recipes that you would recommend to me since I am new to it? Also, do you refrigerate this or leave it out and I wonder if they freeze well? Thank you!!!!

    thank u so much for this recipe. i really cant thank u enough. i’ve been going crazy searching for somthing that will quiet my afternoon and late night hunger. one slice of this bread and i’m set. this will surely take my mind off those carbs. love this and love ya.

    Thanks for this recipe. It came out perfectly delicious! My bananas weren’t super ripe so I used 2 droppers of liquid Stevia and it added the perfect amount of sweetness that I needed. I will be making this again and again and again!

    What are the nutrition facts for the banana bread?

  183. Avatar

    I only had 3 really brown bananas so I made it with that and didn’t add any honey! Doh! It’s so un-sweet that you can taste the salt! I will add some Peanut butter mixed with honey as a “frosting” on top to try to remedy. I made muffins (12 small ones) and didn’t find any issues with sogginess. 25 min was perfect. I used one tray right on top of another and got really even cooking. Thank you for the recipe!

    Just what I need to get started on my weight loss program.

    Hi ..any chance you would know how much the banana weight ? I have 3 relatively big ones..



    • Primally Inspired

      Annie, I don’t have the weight, but you should be just fine with 3 big ones! I’ve made this with 3 bananas and I’ve made it with 5 bananas and it always comes out good either way. This is one of those recipes that is hard to screw up 🙂

    I keep seeing feedback where people cut back the oil to 1/3 cup, but that is what the original recipe calls for. I have found that if I make sure my eggs are on the smaller side I have better luck with texture. If I use larger eggs I will usually use one less than the recipe calls for with good results. Having said that I love your recipes! Thank you so much for your hard work my tummy loves you!

    Just made them with almond flour. Had to add about a 1/2 c more than the recipe called for. They came out awesome though. Made muffins.

    Hi, thanks for posting this recipe. I was never much of a fan of coconut flour as i thought they leave the cakes quite dry and a weird taste, but this bread is amazing! I’m doing it for the third time and i see there are a few people complaining about the recipe… It’s all a matter of adjusting the recipe a bit according to your taste, oven, banana sizes, etc. First time i thought it was a bit oily (but still delicious and with no added sugar i was in awe!) so i put a bit less oil and a little bit more flour. It was great, but both times, because my oven is not too regulated, i had to leave well into an hour and 15 minutes. If you see is still too wet inside just leave it on low heat for longer, even if it looks it’s getting dark at the top, don’t worry, it’s not burning, it will still taste delicious. This time my bananas were not so ripe so i added 1 tbs of raw honey, let’s see how it will turn out!
    Thanks again for posting!!

    I just made this and WOW! It was yummy. My bananas weren’t completely ripe and blackened, so I added a splash of molasses. I also added a handful of dark chocolate morsels. This was truly amazing. I am trying to go Paleo slowly, but surely, and recipes like this will make the transition much easier. I did not feel like I was sacrificing any flavor. It tasted great.

    I made this tonight and it came out GREAT! My bananas weren’t quite ripe enough, so I baked them in the oven on 350 until they were brown – worked like a charm and the bread tasted wonderful!

  191. Avatar

    I made this today as I was looking for something my husband and I could enjoy given we both are gluten free…..him for a year and a half and me for about a month. It turned out pretty good! I’ve never baked with cocunut flour before except some muffins I made last week. Both definitely had that chewy coconut flavor/texture so you have to like coconut. Just wanted to double check….the banana bread recipe calls for one and a half teaspoons of cinnamon? Thanks!

    Oh man I am SOOO glad I found this recipe, It is AMAZING I have been looking for a coconut flour recipe and so happy I stumbled upon yours!! Trying to find alternatives to wheat, and that fits into my macros! yay!! so happy

  193. Avatar

    I just tried this recipe last night. YOU BETTA SHUT YO MOUF!!!! It was soooooo good. I cut the recipe in half so I didn’t waste anything, in case it was nasty (coconut flour is pricey). BUT I LOVED IT. I agree with those that say it was a bit “overly moist”, but it was not not soggy. It actually reminded me of bread pudding, which I love, so #WINNING. Finally something Sweet to eat on my LOW CARB woe. 🙂 Happy camper right here. #KETOfriendly

    I’m pretty sure I’ve commented before but I just have to say I’ve been making this ever since I found it and I’ve tried at least 5 other paleo banana breads and they all were nothing compared to this one seriously! I’ve fed this to people who are not paleo and when I tell them it is their mouths drop open as if to say but how! Thank you so much for this recipe I’m forever thankful! Also for anyone saying it’s soggy the trick is to not use large bananas if you use medium to small ones it’s perfect and won’t be soggy at all! Make sure to bake it for 60 minutes and put it in the fridge to let it form up as well it will be soft right out of the oven. I’ve made this at least 30 times so trust me when I say this! Also it tastes amazing with unsweetened shredded coconut instead of chocolate chips if your trying to say away from added sugars!

    What else could you add for protein?

  196. Avatar

    YUM!!!! This banana bread is the bomb! I make it all the time, even gluten/dairy eaters like it. The texture is different… more like a super tender cake/cornbread cross. Sometimes I add a little honey if needed. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!!!!

  197. Avatar

    Oh! And I meant to add that I usually mix in raisins and chopped walnuts. SO GOOD! Thanks again!
