homemade paleo banana bread recipe

Get ready for the ULTIMATE chocolate chip banana bread recipe that’s paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. It can be made vegan by subbing in flax eggs.

I’ve actually come to love this banana bread more than my previous banana bread recipe that I’d been making for years!

This delicious banana bread recipe is moist, healthy, and super simple to make! Plus it’s totally adjustable; the ingredients can be changed to suit dietary or personal preferences. When I make it, I like to add in raw cacao melts as the “chocolate chips,” just as a healthier alternative, but chopped walnuts, cinnamon, or even almonds make excellent sub-ins too.
