No More Store Bought Banana Bread (Paleo)

I spoke about the foods I eat in a previous post (The Paleo Actor) and I think it’s time I start sharing a little more, so fortnightly alternating between my acting blogs I will be introducing a blog all about food and health. In the food blog I will be posting recipes and alternatives to some of our foods that we just can’t seem to give up. I will also have my sister co-writing as some of the recipes she has come up with have become some of my favorite foods, this will all be featured in this blog.

I want to start this blog with an easy recipe, here is our verson of:





15 mins


55 mins


  • 2 Large ripe bananas
  • ½ cup (125ml) maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla Extract
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ cup (125ml) coconut oil. Softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup walnuts, whole orchopped


  • Preheat oven to 160°C.Line a 1.5L loaf pan with baking paper.
  • Inabowl, mash 2 bananas in a bowl add maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and bicarb soda.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk, room temperature eggs then add coconut oil untilcombined.(make sure there are no lumps of coconut oil, if there is mix till all combined)
  • Combine coconut flour, almond meal and baking powder in a bowl.
  • Fold banana mixture into egg mixture, then fold in the flour mixture and nuts.
  • The batter will become thick as the flour will begin to absorb the liquids. (it will not be like a regular cake mix consistency)
  • Spread batter into baking pan. Press in a handful of walnuts into the batter once smoothed down. Bake for 45 -50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into thecentrecomes out clean. And top is Golden Brown
  • Allow to Cool for 30 minutes in the pan before removing it.
