Is there anything more satisfying than the smell of fresh banana bread cooking? Well, besides the taste of course! Banana bread is such a simple and delicious morning treat and this paleo version, with option to use brown butter if you tolerate dairy, is just downright decadent. I love how simple it comes together and can’t get over how delicious it smells when baking!

Grab a slice with a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy! This also freezes well, so if you want, make a double batch with one for now and one for later or for a gift.

Prep Time 00:10 Cook Time 00:40 Total Time 00:50 Serves 6-8



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F and line a 8" loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat butter over medium heat until it turns a toasty brown color, about 3-5 minutes. Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure the butter cooks evenly. Once brown, take off heat and let cool slightly. If using ghee or coconut oil simply melt it and let cool slightly.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and whisk to combine.
  4. In a separate medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Add in the eggs, maple sugar, vanilla extract and the brown butter and whisk until completely combined.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips, if using, and pour the batter into the loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Smooth the top with a spatula and top with additional chocolate chips ,if desired.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

  1. This loaf can be frozen for for up to 3 months. 
  2. If you can't tolerate butter, simply sub ghee or coconut oil.
