Paleo Gluten Free Banana Bread

Forget everything you thought you knew about banana bread.

Without any white flour to weigh down the flavor, this healthy and naturally gluten free banana bread has the most unbelievable melt-in-your-mouth texture.

I had two slices with breakfast three hours ago, and I’m still dreaming about it.

Honestly, I wasn’t prepared for it to taste so good.

I’d planned to make the paleo bread for my parents when they came to visit (trying to help them eat fewer white carbs!).

But I fell so in love that I ended up eating half the recipe by myself before they even arrived and had to make a second loaf to share. 

It’s not a traditional texture at all… more like a dense and fudgy cheesecake texture. However it does make clean slices. I let it sit out overnight then put leftovers in the fridge the next day.

Is the banana bread keto friendly?

Because bananas are an unacceptable food on the keto diet, the idea of keto banana bread is an oxymoron.

(I would be really terrible at the keto diet.)

If you need a truly keto banana bread recipe, I’d make a regular keto bread recipe and just add banana extract.

Is the recipe vegan?

Without any milk, cream, or butter, the recipe is naturally dairy free.

For the eggs of choice in the recipe, you can use either 2 tbsp Bob’s egg replacer mixed with 6 tbsp water, or it also works with flax eggs. I’m sure there are other egg replacers I haven’t tried that will also work, so be sure to report back with results if you try!

To make the grain free banana bread, I started by doubling this recipe for Keto Muffins, replacing the milk with mashed banana.

But who ever heard of a banana bread with only half a cup of banana?

There were two extra bananas sitting on my counter, so I decided to throw them in too.

Edible experiments are the best kind.

And was it ever a good decision!

    Hi Katie,
    The texture of this bread looks very appealing. I’ve never used almond flour (I know, crazy, but I usually just use white AP flour, as I’m not on any particular diet). I’d like to try this recipe. It appears to have no sugar at all, except for the natural sweetness from the bananas. Does the bread have a sweetness to it, though, or would you recommend adding any sugar? I know that goes against the idea of “keto,” but I’m asking as someone who doesn’t follow any particular dietary rules or ideas, so I’m not intending to offend anyone on the keto or any other diet. Thanks in advance!

    • CCK Media Team says

      It is lightly sweet thanks to the almond flour and the bananas. If you’re looking for a bread that is sweeter (like a dessert bread as opposed to a snack bread) feel free to add a few tbsp of sugar. But the bananas do add sweetness on their own.

      • Lauren says

        Excellent advice, and thank you for writing back! I wasn’t sure how almond flour worked from a chemical standpoint and with different ingredients, so I felt I’d ask the experts!

  2. Nilu says

    Hi Katie, can’t wait to try this version… I bake banana bread regularly. So is there no added sugar in the recipe? My family does prefer more sweet.. so if I added 1/2 cup sugar, would the recipe still work?

    • CCK Media Team says

      Maybe start with 1/4 cup sugar? It’s lightly sweet on its own so 1/2 cup might make it too sweet. But this is just a guess, since we’ve never added any sugar. Be sure to report back if you try!

  3. j says

    The instructions say it turns out “fudgy.” How is that possible without chocolate? Do you mean a texture and not a flavor?

    • J says

      We’re not fans of this recipe. Much too gooey (referred to as fudgy by CCK). Doesn’t slice easily. Flavor doesn’t appeal to us. Followed recipe exactly as written. Never have issues with recipes.

      • CCK Media Team says

        Gooey and fudgy are not the same thing. Just bake yours longer and it should be good! Oven temperatures/time can vary (especially if you live in a humid climate, it’s a rainy day, or your oven is not calibrated). It should be firm enough to cut clean slices.

  4. L says

    “Fudgy” implies texture, as she has written many times previously. She replaced the milk in the recipe upon which her new recipe is based with banana, as she stated. She doubled her keto muffin recipe, which called for milk, and she replaced milk with banana to create her new recipe. That’s how I interpreted her article, anyway.

  5. kb says

    I’m just about to start making this recipe and noticed – the recipe says 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder…
    that is more than is typically added to banana bread – so, just want to check…. is 1 Tbsp correct?

    Hi CCKatie! A follower of yours for a long time! You always delight my healthy sweet side+! For this almond banana bread recipe which egg option did you choose to use?

    This looks really good. I am going to try it. Also, I have everything except I oy have 2 bananas not 3. Can I use some banana extract or no better to go with 3 bananas ?

  8. Lauren says

    The nutritional facts are way off. ¼ cup of almond flour (Trader Joe’s or Bob’s Red Mill) has 170 calories, so two cups of almond flour would have 1,360 calories. The calorie count lists the calories for the whole loaf of bread with all the ingredients as only 996.

    I’m a big fan and have made hundreds of your recipes but I’ve noticed a lot of mistakes on nutritional facts for recipes recently.

  9. JR says

    I made this – it’s super easy and turned out nicely. I added cinnamon as I thought it would be a bit bland otherwise. It didn’t turn out fudgy – maybe the bananas were’t overripe enough? But it was really good the way it turned out, nice and light. I am ripening 3 more bananas to make this again soon because it was gone too fast!
