Paleo Flourless Banana Bread

Paleo Flourless Banana Bread
Printable Recipe

I've been on a quest of healthy, flourless recipes and this is such a great recipe to share. I don't remember the exact link to the original recipe, but it's somewhere on this website.

Want to know the best part about this recipe? It only needs 2Tbsp of maple syrup!! This is a great low-sugar recipe and I just love the fact there's no flour in it. How come we grew up needing flour in all of our recipes?

Anyway, I'll step off my soap box and give you the glorious-ness now!

1 1/2cup almond butter
2 eggs

2 ripe bananas, smashed with a fork (sub 2/3cup pumpkin)
2Tbsp maple syrup
1/4cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2tsp baking soda
1/4tsp cinnamon
1/4cup chopped pecans
Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together (besides the pecans) until combined. Grease a 13x9 pan with coconut oil or olive oil and pour the mixture into the pan.

Top with pecans and bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. It will deflate a little after you bring it out of the oven so don’t worry, you didn’t do anything wrong!

Cool and serve.

Tip: To make it more appealing to kids, add 1/8 cup mini chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate chips and add to the mixture before baking. Don’t forget, if you have leftovers to cut into portion sizes, line a sheet pan with parchment paper and freeze for 1 hour then move to a freezer bag
Eat and enjoy!


  1. do you think you could use almond flour instead of almon butter in this..as well as your pumpkin bread? i'm in australia and wierd as it, it is hard to get almond butter,but not almond flour?? and i don't have a machine to make it. thanks...looks awesome

    1. You can use almond flour the way you do with regular white/wheat flour, supposedly. I don't have too much luck with equal substitutions which is why I use almond butter.

      Do you eat peanut butter? If so, sub the almond butter with peanut butter.

      You can try finding a regular banana bread recipe and using almond flour in place. If you do try it, let me know how it works.

      Sorry I can't help too much!

  2. 3 Researches SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you actually kill fat by consuming coconut fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medicinal journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
