Paleo Banana Bread with Pecans

So, I don't know about y'all, but when it is cold outside, I CRAVE comfort foods! One of my absolute faves is banana nut bread -- but it's not exactly on my current diet plan. So, what's a girl to do during an ice storm when she has a craving? Hit up Pinterest for a cleaner, leaner recipe - of course! The recipe I decided to give a try was found at [Inspire & Indulge]...and it was's the recipe.

[Paleo] Banana Bread
Inspired by Civilized Caveman Cooking
Makes 8 slices
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (or any nut butter)
  • 1.5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • optional: 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg or all-spice, 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • optional: dried cranberries, orange zest, chocolate chips, chopped pecans (I added 3/4 cup chopped pecans - 1/2 c. mixed in batter, 1/4 c. on top)
What to Do
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) and lightly grease a loaf pan.
  2. Add the ripe bananas, eggs, almond butter, coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract to your blender.  (Remember, you can melt your coconut oil by placing the jar in a bowl of hot tap water.)
  3. Blend on high for 15-20 seconds, scraping down sides if necessary.
  4. Add the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and optional ingredients.
  5. Blend on high for 20-30 seconds, scraping down sides if necessary.
  6. Pour batter into your loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until inserted knife comes out clean.
  8. Allow the loaf to cool slightly then slice and enjoy.
