Paleo Coconut flour Banana bread (gluten free, dairy free, fructose friendly, grain free)

One of my most popular recipes on the blog is my coconut flour banana bread. It is one of our staples at home and whenever we have browning bananas in the fruit bowl I will get a request from the Boy to bake it. Since I first published the recipe in early 2013, I have progressively made some tweaks to improve it whilst not taking away from its purpose of being somewhat healthy.

I found that by adding in chia seeds to my original recipe along with beefing it up with a few more eggs, the end result is banana bread with much improved texture without any of its predecessors crumbliness. This banana bread toasts beautifully and with the increased fibre content of the coconut flour it can be quite filling.

18 Thoughts on “Paleo Coconut flour Banana bread (gluten free, dairy free, fructose friendly, grain free)

    • Thanks Julie, it is a lovely combination. The coconut taste is very subtle and doesn’t overpower the banana flavour.

  1. Oh yay, recipe cards at Belmont Forum?? I must go and raid their stash (or I could just print out your recipe… but that’s not nearly as fun!). I’ve been drooling over this ever since I saw a picture on instagram. The bread looks so moist and delicious… and full of goodness from the chia and coconut flour (the latter of which I have become obsessed with recently). Beautiful post Martine, I cannot wait to try this xx

    • I love how this recipe has been a slow and progressive development for me. Not something I usually feel I am skilled enough in the kitchen to be able to do well, so its quite exciting to be able to call this one my own! Let me know what you think! xx

    • My original recipe was based on just coconut flour and I found it to be too light and crumbly. I actually upped the banana and eggs and added chia seeds with the intention of making it a bit denser. It depends on your preference. If you fiddly around with the quantities you could adapt it more to your liking.
