Banana, Nut, Chocolate-Chip BreadI have tried many banana bread recipes, but this one is the best. Most Paleo-type recipes usually have been very dry for my taste. This is moist and reminiscent of the banana breads I enjoyed before going Primal. And, how can you go wrong when it includes dark chocolate crumbles? Go easy. This is a treat; not a regular part of a diet.


Paleo Banana, Nut, Chocolate-Chip Bread



4 bananas

4 eggs

1/2 Cup crunchy almond butter, unsalted

4 Tbs ghee or butter (you could substitute coconut oil)

1/2 Cup coconut flour

1 Tbs cinnamon (I use Ceylon cinnamon)

1 Tsp baking soda

1 Tsp baking powder

1 Tsp vanilla

1/8 Tsp sea salt

1/4 Cup dark chocolate bar (my favorite is 85% Dark Blackout by Alter Eco), chopped



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Combine bananas, eggs, almond butter, and ghee (or butter or coconut oil) and mix thoroughly; then blend with a stick blender
  3. Add coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, sea salt, and chopped chocolate; mix well
  4. Grease a 9×5 glass or metal loaf pan with coconut oil
  5. Pour in batter, and place in oven
  6. Bake about 55 minutes in glass or 40 minutes in metal (until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean)
  7. Remove from oven and remove (I usually flip it out as soon as I can)
  8. Slice and serve (For my wife and me, we slice it and then freeze it for later)
