My absolute favorite thing to bake is banana bread! My weekly banana consumption is off the charts and banana bread is my favorite way to consume them. This Paleo Double Chocolate Banana Bread is filled with tons of chocolate and is perfectly sweetened. Moreover, it’s Paleo, Gluten Free and healthy. It’s great for an easy breakfast, afternoon snack or late night dessert. Additionally, I have a recipe for Paleo Strawberry Banana Bread which is fresh and fun!

INGREDIENTS FOR PALEO DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BANANA BREAD

BANANAS: Bananas are definitely the most important ingredient for this Paleo Double Chocolate Banana Bread!

ALMOND BUTTER: Creamy almond butter adds a hint of hearty and nutty flavor.

ALMOND FLOUR & TAPIOCA FLOUR: The combination of almond flour and tapioca flour gives this banana bread the perfect consistency.

COCONUT SUGAR: Coconut sugar is a popular Paleo sweetened since it’s made from coconuts and not highly processed.

COCOA POWDER: For an extra chocolaty bread, use dark cocoa powder.

Step 6

Cool banana bread for an hour before slicing and serving.
