Ingredients

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup mashed banana about 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients:

Optional:

  • ½ cup mix-ins walnuts, chocolate chips, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, add the wet ingredients. Mix together using a hand mixer until smooth. In a medium bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth, about 1 minutes.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top. Bake for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a rack and cool completely. Enjoy!

Notes

Mix-ins: Add things like chopped nuts or dairy-free chocolate chips for more texture and flavor.
Storage: Paleo banana bread will last for a few days covered at room temperature, or up to a week in the refrigerator.
Freezing: Wrap the loaf tightly with plastic wrap, then place in a freezer-safe storage bag. It should keep well frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours prior to eating it.
Easy snacking: Freeze individual slices to grab as needed, which will also help the loaf last longer.
