Best Banana Nut Bread Recipe Ever - grain-free, sugar-free, paleo, dairy-free watch out!

PIN IT

Ok, are you ready for the best banana bread recipe ever? Ok, of course there is a catch…actually I think we need to add that this is the best banana nut bread, whether you’re grain (or gluten) intolerant or not! Paleo, Southbeach, Gaps dieters are about to fall in LOVE all over again! 🙂

I really love banana nut bread.  I remember my mom used to make it and I loved the savory smell that filled the house and then the taste–yumm!  I used to slather it with butter, but don’t recommend that anymore.  But the beautiful truth is that you don’t really even need it to have additional oil because this is going to be one of the moistest banana (nut or not) bread you’ve sunk your teeth into.

It’s seriously amazing. It really is the Best Grain free Banana Bread Recipe I’ve tasted. And the texture gives no hint that it’s healthy either.  It looks, feels and tastes as good, if not better than any of the traditional banana bread recipes, but this one happens to be gluten free, and refined sugar-free, dairy-free and soy-free.  I guess we might as well add peanut free and unhealthy fat free too.  It almost sounds like we’ve got nothing left, right? Wrong. lol, we actually have a very amazing loaf of the best grain-free banana bread around.

Okay, a little word of warning before you look at the list of ingredients and start hyperventilating.  It only looks like a long list, but it’s really not bad at all.  If there are new ingredients that look a little different, just know that they will soon become some of your new best cooking friends.  So breathe…and jot down the few things you don’t have, then add them to your eternal pantry.

The one little note I’ll share is make sure to only use green powder stevia, which is the pure form it comes in.  I don’t recommend any trademarked brands because they’ve been chemically altered. We believe that it makes a big difference, especially if you’re struggling with your health at all. You’ll notice coconut milk in the recipe below, HOWEVER, it’s super easy and fun to make. If you’d like to save some $$$, just head across to our sidebar and SUBSCRIBE and we’ll hook you up with a recipe that will change your world (for the better of course!)

IF you need a great place to get great quality organic ingredients, AND you’re wanting the very BEST PRICES on them, we highly recommend that you check out this new ORGANIC MARKET, their prices are a steal, in fact they are better than anywhere else we’ve seen, amazon included, and we know these items are all fresh! We only share affiliate  links to brands and items we completely believe in, and in this case we highly recommend them and wholeheartedly believe you will too.

Now go whip this delicious treat together, and if you have anything left, be sure to keep it in the fridge.  And, btw, it freezes really nicely too.

    1 cup of coconut sugar hardly makes this recipe “sugar free” (even taking into consideration that the recipe makes two loaves). As someone who suffers from chronic yeast, ANY sugar (refined or not) will feed my body’s yeasty tendencies and make me feel like crap. Coconut sugar is around 35 on the glycemic index. Stevia, on the other hand is 0, Xylitol (my sweetener of choice) is about 12. You might want to try incorporating some coconut flour into this recipe instead of using so much coconut sugar. I’m still somewhat stymied by baking with coconut flour (which absorbs moisture like a sponge) or I’d try it myself.

      It won’t work for everyone, but our focus is more about getting away from all refined ingredients, so coconut sugar is a better solution for us, as it isn’t processed in as high of levels of heat. We deal with a lot of autoimmune concerns, and those bodies tend to do better on something like coconut sugar than on xylitol, which we feel may be too chemically altered for bodies with autoimmune issues.
      So we stay as far away from xylitol as possible. If a person needs to stay clear of coconut sugar, it is possible to bulk it up with a little more banana and use stevia instead. I would substitute 2 teaspoons per cup. Or you could use raisins or dates, if those are something that works well for you instead.
      It’s great to play with it though, and as you do, please get back with us and let us know what you learn and love, we’d be happy to hear any suggestions that work well and keep the taste and texture amazing.
      Thanks so much, we look forward to hearing back from you!

      Hi Maura, stevia can work great as a sugar replacement, but is tougher in baking because it changes the bulk and texture of baked items. So I’m not sure it would work in this recipe. We’ve cut out all of the “sugar” that we could already and added in some bulk.
      Another thought, we’ve steered away from xylitol as we don’t feel that it is truly natural, but if it’s the only option, it would work well in this recipe, structurally anyway, and may be something to do some research on to weigh out the pros and cons to decide whether it’s worth trying occassionally for you, and your needs, or not. I wish there was an easier option, but I guess if it’s sugar, which your body can’t tolerate vs xylitol, it may be the better of two evils in your case. Good luck, we wish you the very best!! Please let us know what you end up doing. xo
