The best ever Paleo Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bread made with 8 ingredients!

Yes, another banana bread recipe in the family.

I wasn’t joking on Instagram when I said I was contemplating making a blog centered around banana bread. Because not only is banana bread my favorite thing to eat, it is also my favorite to make and photograph.

This wasn’t always case though. The first time I made banana bread, I was screaming and cursing at the banana bread for not “cooperating” with me. This does happen often when I have a certain vision or expectation and it comes out 100% differently than planned. I also tend to get discouraged easily when I don’t know how to photograph something but I see that the other bloggers around me nail it overtime. While I know that is not good to compare myself to others (no one should), sometimes you can’t help yourself.

So instead of giving up after photographing my first loaf, I told myself I would make some more and practice. As a result I have been cranking away banana bread recipes and now they are my favorite to photograph (and eat). Who would have thought, right? This is my first banana bread without chocolate, but I promise you it still tastes amazing. This Paleo Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bread is also packed with fresh blueberries and basically tastes like summer in a sweet loaf of bread.

It was such a hit in my house that the loaf lasted a total of 3 days between Jord and I. I am not even kidding. My parents came a few days later and expected to try some and there was none left (oops, sorry guys).

Best part about this Paleo Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bread? You only need 8 ingredients to make it and it is grain-free, dairy-free and also gluten-free.The best ever Paleo Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bread made with 8 ingredients!

What ingredients you need to make paleo blueberry banana bread: 

  • Ripe bananas – the more freckles, the sweetener the bananas, the better!
  • Eggs – I haven’t tested flax eggs here but they may work top!
  • Coconut oil – or avocado or olive oil works too
  • Maple syrup – you can also use honey as well if you prefer
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond flour -I haven’t tested subs. Oat flour may work as well but it won’t be as moist.
  • Tapioca flour or arrowroot flour – this really helps with the consistency of the bread. I don’t recommend omitting as it will be too moist.
  • Fresh or frozen blueberries – either works here!

How to make blueberry banana bread:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line or spray a loaf pan with parchment paper
