Paleo/Primal Banana Bread

The best gluten free Banana Bread on the Planet

This amazingly delicious banana bread has been a staple in my house since 2010. The original recipe came from 'Marks Daily Apple' - a blog I still follow for healthy lifestyle suggestions and paleo/primal style recipes.

My introduction to this blog was during my first ever detox challenge where my husband I eliminated inflammatory, allergenic, addictive, and acidic foods, including caffeine and alcohol and replaced them with clean, healthy, sustainable, and whole food options. The experience of truly being intentional about what I was eating changed how I felt in my body, and how I viewed the foods I consumed on a daily basis, forever! It also enhanced the texture of my skin and hair, boosted my mental focus, elevated my overall mood and energy levels, and I still to this day sleep better than ever before.

The creator of 'Marks Daily Apple', Mark Sisson, also the author of The Primal Blueprint, The Primal Kitchen Cookbook, and The 21-Day Total Body Transformation (to name a few of his books) is one of my first influences/inspirations in becoming a health, life, and fitness coach. Every time I make this yummy, healthy, banana bread treat, I am re-inspired to share and educate others on how what we eat makes a difference in all areas of life. Hopefully it can be an inspiration toward healthier ways of eating for you, too.

  • Every oven is different so cooking times may vary

  • Serve right away, or store in fridge for up to 3/4 days
