Anyone familiar with me knows that I love quick and easy paleo recipes. I’m usually on the go all the time and I don’t always have time to spend an hour or more in the kitchen. So, these recipes that require little effort are life savers! Even more optimum are those recipes (such as this paleo banana bread) that have fewer than 5 ingredients, and better yet, have no sweeteners! It’s great because I can grab a few items from the pantry and whip it up in minutes; it is perfect for anyone living an active lifestyle and enjoys clean eating!
The recipe I’m going to share with you today is one of these types of recipes. Believe me, this delicious paleo banana bread is quite popular and actually tastes like you spent an hour in the kitchen, when in fact you only spent 15 minutes tops. Don’t be surprised if the family eats it all in one day!
In searching online, many of us can easily find loads of banana bread recipes that fit the paleo diet. What I find stands out most about this banana bread recipe by Birch Benders is that it simplifies the whole process down to 3 ingredients, most of which you probably have on a daily basis. There’s really not much thinking involved here, it’s very easy, and there aren’t any odd ingredients you’d have to go on a special grocery run for! Plus, it contains absolutely no sweeteners, which in turn will make the day even easier.
After baking this bread, I suggest enjoying it warm out of the oven, topped with ghee or coconut oil. You can also enjoy it with a cup of my version of bulletproof coffee, a must-have in the morning. If you’re feeling adventurous, I highly recommend trying out some of the other recipes contributed by Birch Benders such as their paleo pizza or delicious maple almond pancakes. All gluten free and dairy free of course! And don’t forget their easy paleo snack bites – delicious! If you decide to make this recipe, don’t forget to share with me what you think of it!
