Just what the blog needs… yet another banana bread recipe!

Except I am totally being serious. There are never too many banana breads over here. At this point though, I definitely lost count over how many we have on the blog. But today we have a brand new loaf.

A Chocolate SWIRL Banana Bread made with all gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan ingredients. Sweetened with a bit of maple syrup and banana.

This banana bread is the newest obsession over here. I love that it has a perfectly moist consistency with a little sweetness from banana and maple syrup with some chocolate. It makes for the most delicious dessert, snack or breakfast with a little yogurt and granola on top.

What I love the most about this recipe is how easy it is to make. You don’t have to swirl it if you don’t want and can make it a double decker type of banana bread with the simple kind on bottom then chocolate on top.

What ingredients you’ll need to bake this paleo loaf:

  • Flax egg – 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 2.5 tablespoons water
  • Mashed banana – you can use applesauce too if you don’t have bananas
  • Maple syrup – you can sub honey too! or omit if you don’t want added sugar
  • Almond flour or almond meal – either works!
  • Cacao powder
  • Chocolate chips

A few of my other favorite banana breads: Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread (Nut Free)Simple Almond Flour Banana Bread (paleo) + Paleo Blueberry Banana Breakfast Bread

  1. YUM!! Adding this one to my baking list! It looks divine Rachel. Is there meant to be oat flour in this recipe? I didn’t think oat flour was paleo.

      1. I feel like this recipe hasn’t been tested properly now that its been changed haha. May I ask, how many times do you test a recipe before publishing it Rachel? 🙂
