Banana Bread French Toast

There are just so many A’s in banana. So many. It’s confusing. And I have to sound it out every time. Sad, but true.

So I got this idea from the ever amazing Jessica at How Sweet It Is. Her blog posts come straight to my email so I’m greeted every morning with food I can’t consume. But her photography is unbelievable. What I would give to spend a day in her sugar jar. That sounded weird, but picture it. You can’t act like that wouldn’t be cool. And smell really good.

Anywho, I want to be just like her and as soon as I saw her post of banana (just sounded it out again) bread french toast, I HAD to make my own version. Twice. In two days. Laura and I ate it too fast on a Saturday night while we watched Bourne Supremacy and Bodyguard so I couldn’t snap any pictures. Wow, we’re single. Totes worth it though. I also had 2 non-paleo people say they LOVED it and my friend Sergio tell me to shut up when I asked him how it was. He stared at me with pure happiness in his eyes.

So this was cool. Laura and I went on a date for 5280 week at Fogo de Chao which is a brazilian restaurant in Denver. We don’t get asked on dates so we just take each other out…and pay for ourselves. Cool. Anyways. Ummmm holy meat. Just so much meat. Which was awesome. And the best part of it all was our server spilt a sangria on me (a trip from another patron occurred) and he felt soooooo bad. So bad. This poor adorable little man looked like he was going to cry because he was so embarrassed. I seriously didn’t care. It got in my hair. He obviously doesn’t know how disgusting my hair usually is because Laura and I got free sangrias AND desserts. Holy sugar overload. I ate flan and some kind of creamy dessert that tasted like melted ice cream. OH HELLS YEAH. I immediately was coughing up mucus after dinner and had a food child growing, making a home. I’m grossed out by myself from that last sentence. But it’s the sad sad truth.

Just to end this conversation, if you don’t ever try this recipe, your life WILL NOT be complete. If you want to win a man or woman over, make this dish. If you want to convert someone to paleo, make this dish. And if you want to cry tears into your food, make this dish. I don’t lie. Only 9 times out of 10 am I lying. Kidding…or am I? But you could just make the banana bread, make banana bread muffins, really whatever you want to do! Opportunities are endless in this paleo world!


Banana Bread French Toast

  • Yield: 2-4 1x



For the bread

  • 3 medium bananas (you want them brown and spotty)
  • 1.5 cups roasted unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup almond meal/flour
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

For the french toast


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Pull out your handy dandy food processor. It will make life soooo much easier. Add your cashews to the food processor to grind down.
  3. Once your get a fine cashew meal, add your walnut oil while your food processor is still on until you get a cashew butter.
  4. Then peel your bananas, roughly break them up, and add to your food processor with your cashews. Turn your food processor on and let combine for a minute or so until you have a soupy paste.
  5. Now in a large bowl, whisk your eggs, then add your cashew/banana mixture along with almond meal/flour, baking soda and powder, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Mix to combine until you get a batter.
  6. Grease a loaf pan with some coconut oil. I used a loaf pan that was 9.3×5.2 inches (weird numbers) and it worked well. You could use smaller for taller loaf of bread, just may cook differently.
  7. Pour batter into your greased loaf pan. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until bread is cooked through and the top of your loaf has a bit of a “crisp” to it.
  8. Let bread cool for about 10 minutes.
  9. When banana bread is cooled, whisk together your french toast ingredients (minus the coconut oil) in a shallow bowl.
  10. Heat up a skillet or griddle and add your coconut oil to it.
  11. Cut your bread into 1/2-1 inch slices, dip them in your egg mixture on both sides, then place on griddle to cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  12. Top french toast off with slice bananas, maple syrup or honey, and a touch of cinnamon.
  13. Pure brilliance. Consume. Try to go slow. It is epic.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

      1. This just changed my life. Seriously, WOW. I wish I had added one more banana bc my third one wasn’t that big, and they def weren’t ripe enough, but even so, AMAZINGGGG. I love you, Juli Bauer!!! I’m on my phone & it won’t let me rate it, but TEN STARS!!!

      2. OMG indeed. I just made this with a couple small substitutions (hazelnuts for cashews, coconut oil for walnut oil) and I don’t think the bread will ever even make it into French Toast form. I can’t stop eating it as is. I am envisioning many iterations in my future…blueberry lemon, orange chocolate, pumpkin spice etc. etc. Thank you and keep on keeping on, you rock!

  1. Can I just say that when I saw on Facebook that you were going to be making banana bread french toast over the weekend, I knew you must read How Sweet It Is as well! I am also obsessed with her funny words and delish looking food that I can’t eat 🙁 Love this paleo adaptation! I am definitely going to try this soon. 🙂

  2. this looks AMAZING. i’ve wanted to make paleo french toast ever since i had some coconut crusted french toast. adding coconut with the banana….and cinnamon…aaaaaaaaaaaaand i’m drooling. whoops.

  3. tomorrow…tomorrow… i love you tomorrow cuz this is what i am am making and I am super excited… looks heavenly!!!!!!!

  4. You make Paleo foods so delicious. I’m just finishing week 3 on the Paleo Solution meal plan and half of it is, at times, unpalatable. I don’t think I could’ve continued on it without substituting things with your recipes =) Cannot wait to try this! Thanks a bunch.

  5. Would it be bad if I made this French toast for dinner?? I don’t have time to do it in the morning and I’m not waiting until my day off, I might dream about it tonight.
    I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad thing that I found your blog… I guess it’s good because I’m going to be eating paleo but it’s also bad because I’m going to be eating aloooooot. I’m just obsessed with food, can’t help it :-/

  6. Seriously. FIRST thing that gets shoved into my paleo pie hole when I get back from A-stan in a month, is this absolute slice of what I dream to be pure awesomeness. I should probably just quit my job now and come home to make this actually. I really need to stop obsessively reading this blog for the next 30ish days so I don’t get medically sent home for the diagnosis of rabies due to excessive foaming/drooling from the mouth.

  7. “Banana.” Remember that Gwen Stefani song from like… I don’t know… 10 years ago? “That shit is bananas… B-A-N-A-N-A-S.”

    That’s how I remember it.

      1. Would almond flour or coconut flour work instead? So excited to make this!!! I’m new to paleo and my husbands favorite thing is banana bread and I’ve been looking to make a paleo version that lives upto my old one!!!

  8. are you serious this looks too perfect. I’m scared of making it because I would hands down eat the whole loaf in under 24 hours. But really, I need to make this. Isn’t being paleo great?!

  9. Ok I totally did the same thing! I love How Sweet It Is, so I made paleo zucchini/banana bread and then turned it into french toast…and ate the whole loaf by myself. What? It’s totally socially acceptable.

  10. Wow, this looks and sounds amazing. I’ll have to track down some ingredients I don’t currently have but I look forward to making this when I can. Thanks!

  11. OMG…you brought up the fu$ken level on this one!!!! HOLY YUMMY! I make banana nut bread whenever I feel like having some form of sweet bread, but never thought to do it up like this! SWEET, can’t wait to try!

  12. balls. i remember my mom always making french toast on sunday mornings for me. i’m totes making this soon. NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM.

    Thanks Juli!

  13. So I have like the stupidest question ever. Does coconut oil and coconut milk taste like that nasty crunchy shredded coconut stuff? My husband totally dislikes coconut. I am not a huge fan either. I see all these great looking paleo recipes and I don’t try them since they have coconut products!

    1. Wilderness Family Naturals has an amazing coconut oil that I find, doesn’t taste like coconut at all. It’s almost floral.

      Granted, if you don’t like coconut, you may be sensitive to it 🙁

    2. It doesn’t taste quite the same as shredded coconut does. You could always use a different oil to cook the bread in and use almond milk instead of coconut milk!

  14. From just the pictures alone I swear it smells like banana bread in here (and I’m at WORK!). I can’t get into the kitchen quick enough to whip this recipe up! Down side… how does one wait so long for so much yumminess??? (yes, that IS a word… I don’t care if Webster doesn’t agree) Keep rockin’ our Paleo worlds Juli!!! Thank you for keeping us stocked up on such irresistible recipes! Oh and Fogo is awesome!!! I do have to say though… I didn’t eat anything at all the day after I went there… was full all night/day/night! Totally worth it though!!! Bacon wrapped filet mignon… seriously, how can one go wrong?!?

  15. Any suggestions if one (me) is deathly allergic to cashews? Maybe substitute some almond butter? I think I will try that. I have a savory bread recipe that calls for almond flour and almond butter. I’ll use that as a template. I love the way recipes morph over the Internet!

  16. It sounds fantastic, except for the cashew part. I’m deathly alergic to cashews! Do you know of a suitable subsitute I can try for that ingredient? I guess I can experiment, but I’m hoping you might know of one. Thanks!

  17. The active honey drizzle in the cover photo made me drool. I think this recipe will be all I eat this weekend. Amazing job!

  18. What is a good brand of almond meal/flour to use? I have used Bob’s Red Mill and made a banana bread recently and it just wasn’t good. I absolutely l

  19. Ok, I don’t know what happened there…..I love french toast and grew up eating it, and I’m looking forward to trying this if I can find a better almond meal.

  20. Juli, MEGA drool!! Do you think instead of cashews, I could sub almond butter in its place? It’s what I have on hand. If so, how much would you estimate? I’d hate it waste is why I’m asking first =) But soooo looking forward to this. Ps, the sweet potato brownies were soooo good! My kids didn’t take to it the first day (too bad for them!), but after they settled overnight (what a shame there was still some left the next day, lol!) the taste was off the hook and they gobbled them right up! Can’t wait for coffee cake… *growl*

      1. Ok, results with 1 cup of almond butter subbed for cashew are in! It works and is oh so MEGA GOOD!! I’m making the bread today to have french toast in the morning with the kids, hopefully there will be some to make in the morning! It yielded (2) mini 4″x7″ loaves and tastes heavenly with honey or maple syrup drizzled on top *dreamy sigh* I think I may add another banana next time to spruce up the banana taste but as is, this is on point! OMG — half of the first loaf is already done! I’m starting to panic about a breakfast idea in case it deson’t make it *fist palm*… Oooh, another thought. Banana bread a la mode… paleo ice cream. You know the deal. Ok… too much typing, more eating! Nomz, Juli!

          1. I’m in the market for a good vanilla one that isn’t over-powered by coconut. Omg, what about a burnt almond ice cream to go with this banana bread! (My strength and weakness is an abundance of ideas). I’ve made mango and strawberry so far (only one is posted on my blog though). The kids are asking for chocolate next. Well geez. Who am I to say no when I can PALEOize it! =P Ps, I ate half of the first loaf and the kids had 2 slices each. Good news, we have bread for the am, lol!

  21. Ummm… OMG!! You have made my Month with this one!!!! If you ever come to sunny Florida (Tampa Bay), let me know.. We need to have a cooking session!! You’re a genius.. I have so much to learn 🙂

  22. You have the best Paleo recipes. I love the Jambalaya, Pistachio Chicken Pesto, Honey Ginger Apple Shredded Pork, and now this one. I’m totally making two loaves (not meatloaves) tonight so I can eat one tonight and have french toast for tomorrow after my Crossfit workout.

    I want one of your men’s shirts because this site is awesome.

    1. No you’re awesome Mike! Glad you have like the recipes! Let me know how the french toasts comes out, i’m sure it will taste wicked awesome after a wod!

      1. The french toast was great! I used strawberries and blueberries instead of using even more bananas to go with the banana bread french toast. I also sprinkled a bit of shredded coconut on top.

  23. Found this thanks to pinterest. YUM. I want these, and I have bananas about to go bad on my counter right now… Thanks for the recipe conversion to awesomeness. I’ll be adding lots of nuts and shredded coconut to mine, too…

  24. This recipe may FINALLY push me to buy a food processor. Is it possible to sub coconut flour for almond meal in this recipe?
    But omg. I typically drool just a little bit when I read most of your posts, but this one has me mopping off my keyboard.

    1. You gotta buy one, its totally worth every penny. And I think the bread might be a bit dry with coconut flour and you would need to use more cashews in replacement because you would need to cut your coconut flour down.

  25. Jules, this looks incredible, and even though most of your recipes can be a little intimidating to us males in our 20’s, I am going to whole foods this weekend and am gonna give this one a whirl! Keep up the great work!

  26. you are the most epic person ever…just sayin’

    this was like a ninja party of omfghowcanthistastesogood in my mouth…

    I didnt have a surplus of cashews kicking around…so I made pecan butter instead of cashew butter…

    and then topped these bad boys with strawberries, banana, pecans, coconut flakes and a smidge of maple syrup.

  27. Wow, your recipes are truly amazing. This is my first time here, and I am nicely surprised. I have just read coconut coffee cake recipe, than I saw this one. Perfect!

  28. I just made the banana bread tonight and it was awesome!! I am going to make the French Toast tomorrow after my WOD – will have definitely earned it! I love your recipes and plan my weekly food shopping trip around them. Keep ’em coming!

  29. Just looking at this picture makes me salivate. Thanks for putting two of my favorite foods together: bananas + french toast = one happy THEO.

    I will definitely try this recipe and get back to you ASAP.

    Thanks for the tip!


  30. Awesome recipe! It is the first time that I have tried baking since going primal/paleo. It was delicious. My hubs, who is not on primal/paleo said it is “okay” but mainly because he is not a fan of banana bread.

    Thank you for making my Saturday morning!

  31. Having just started my Paleo lifestyle change a month ago, I drew a blank in the kitchen everytime I tried to cook. Your blog is something I look forward to, to give me a chuckle daily and inspire me in the kitchen. My husband (who’s a chubsy wubsy) loves when I cook and has no idea I’m converting him on the sly. He refuses to “diet” and still tries to convince me to grab a banana split, milk shake or slice of cheesecake with him. As frustrating as it is, I think I may be winning him over on eating healthier thanks to your delicious recipes. You’re my hero.

  32. Hi, I’m fairly new to Paleo so my question is, are these delicious recipes ok if I’m still trying to lose weight?
    I’ve already made the Coconut Coffee Cake and loved it!!! I’m getting ready to made the Banana Bread French Toast now.

  33. AMAZING! I haven’t had any bread in a month, so this was such a treat! Even my non-paleo (or as I prefer to say, not-yet paleo) hubby and boys liked it! Thank you so much for sharing!

  34. Juli – Unfortunately I thought I had walnut oil on hand but had macadamia nut oil instead so other than that I followed your recipe almost to the t’. But mine turned out mushy in the middle. Its still cooking and Im over the 25-30 m recommended cooking time. I have a regular loaf pan on hand but Im not sure of its dimensions…it looks just like a regular bread/loaf pan… Not sure what I did wrong :/

  35. Juli,

    Please disregard my comment “I followed it to the T”…I re-read the instructions and it was my fault, I put “3” eggs instead of “2”..O well its still salvageable…doesnt look great but portions of it cooked well enough that it looks like your pictures. Again, blame the “reader/follower” <– dork! It was ABSOLUTELY amazing by the way!!! You rock 🙂

  36. Juli, quick question for you. This looks amazing! However we have a severe tree-nut allergy in our family so we would have to leave out the cashews and walnut oil. Also, we have yet to find a flour we can use! Do you have any recommendations or substitutions for almond flour and nut products? I found some coconut flour at a local store but it says it may contain tree nuts, so we can’t use that one. 🙁 I’m dying to try all these “baked” products!!!!!

    1. Humph, I’m a bit stuck at what to tell ya Kelly, that’s really tough. I want to say coconut flour if you can find it online somewhere that nuts aren’t present. But with paleo, it’s hard to find a flour that’s not based from nuts.

      1. Some of the Paleo folks take unsweetened shredded coconut and make their own flour in a blender or food processor. It has full fat content that way, so would be moister and I bet it would work just fine in place of the nut flours.

  37. Yes. This DOES taste even BETTER than it looks and sounds. Sometimes when things look and sound delicious, I get this high expectation and become disappointed when I actually taste it. Not this time. Exceeded expectations — and they were high. very high.

  38. (Pale)OMG!!! Just had my first slice and this bread is amazing. I can’t wait to make it into french toast for breakfast tomorrow for the kids. When are you publishing a book already???

  39. I’m kinda crying inside because I don’t have any special occasions coming up, so I don’t have an excuse to make this.


    I think I’m going to come up with an imaginary friend and make her birthday tomorrow.


    There there, don’t cry Alexandra, here’s your banana bread french toast… happy birthday to you!


  40. Hi.

    Do you think I can make the bread in advance and freeze it sliced until it is time to make the french toast? My bananas will probably be ready before the weekend when I plan to make the full french toast.

    Thank you so much for your awesome blog!!

  41. Best banana bread. I have literally tried three different recipes for banana bread prior to this..terrible.. so bland and gross, this is better than the real thing! THANK YOUUUUUU! it was gone in a matter of hours, i waited a week for my bananas to brown and the bread didnt even last through the night :[ damn living at home :] you are greaaattttttt!

  42. Best banana bread ever!! I had this with a couple of the on-the-go egg bites with some paleo ketchup. AMAZINGGG!!

  43. I’m so going to try this during the weekend! Do you think it would turn out just as delicious if I don’t use a food processor for making the soupy paste?

    Oh, and I don’t understand why a CrossFitting cook like you would be single!!!

  44. I made this yesterday – sooo yummy! I had a craving for french toast and this totally satisfied it. Maple syrup is on my “I don’t care whether it’s paleo, I’m going to eat it anyway” list.

  45. Are you kidding me???? Squeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I’m eating this right now, sticky fingers on my keyboard and all! The boys (almost 3 and 5 1/2) and I have just polished off an entire loaf’s worth of french toast.

    Bananas don’t last long at my house, so the day you posted this, I went out and bought a bunch to let go bad lol! Today was FINALLY the day (my bananas ripen soooo slowly ack!), and I doubled the recipe for sure! Used almond butter bc I forgot to get cashews, and it turned out fabulously! I’m totally making this for any special brunch occasions from now on!!!!!!

    Thank you so much – you are amazing!!!!! (And the baby says “Oooh ooh! Aaah aaaah!” which is monkey for “PaleOMG is RIGHT!”)

  46. Love this recipe!!! So delicious! I made it last week and got three breakfasts out of it for me and my 13 year old son. He really enjoyed it so I’ve already got the banana bread baked for tomorrow’s breakfast. Thanks Juli 🙂

  47. I only made the banana bread part and it was amazing!! I have made other Paleo banana breads before, but this is the best one by far. The texture was exactly like banana instead of the egg-y creation I often make. This is going to be my go to from now on!

  48. Juli, Made this banana bread yesterday !! One word AMAZING. I did have to substitute one of the banana’s with a sweet potatoe as I was short a banana. I’m going to heat it now and top with almond butter ! yum.

    Thanks again

  49. Here’s the thing – I’m trying to lose some weight. You keep making these recipes that I HAVE to try and they end up being phenomenal. This recipe is a challenge NOT to eat the entire loaf in one sitting. I really can’t decide whether I love you or hate you. I’m pretty sure it’s love. I tasted the bread by itself and thought…holy shit. Then I made it into french toast. Holy.Mother.Of.God. You are really, really good at this. Thank you, I love/hate you.

      1. Just so you know…it’s ‘hate’ in a good way. Please don’t stop making and sharing your recipes.

        And yes, you should definitely write a recipe book.

  50. put fresh blueberries in mine. it’s ungodly good. made mini loaves so i don’t feel like such a fat ass when i sit down to eat the entire thing at once. f**k wallballs, i’d rather eat.

  51. Absolutely amazing! I did alter it a little, used agave syrup instead of honey and i didn’t have cashews, so used walnuts. Came out fantastic!

  52. oohkay. so i’m your newest stalker. like, legitimately. but it’s because you’re making my transition to paleo so easy and delicious.

    um so i made this on the weekend and it was one of the best things i’ve put in my mouth all month. even my non-paleo roommates said it was some of the best banana bread they’ve ever had. then i made it into french toast and went to heaven. yep. so i’m in love with you just thought i’d let you know. (i’m incredibly nonthreatening by the way)

  53. Amazingly good. This is my second time making it and it is wonderful. My wife is having a big birthday party soon (put on by her sisters) and I will be making this. That way, after I figure out a paleo frosting, I can have some cake too!

  54. OMG, THANK YOU for posting this. I’ve made cashew bread before but it has never turned out like real bread. This was SO EASY to make and I just ate my first piece. It tastes so good, can’t wait for my kid to get home to try some!!!!

  55. I had never left a comment on a blog…however I made these into banana muffins and this recipe is seriously the BEST! I have made these for friends and they have no clue that it’s a paleo recipe! I have used both almond butter and cashew butter and they are better with cashew butter- you taste a lot of the almond butter when you use it. Thanks for a great recipe Juli!

  56. I am running a half marathon tomorrow morning and plan on eating these as soon as I get home! It’s a totally acceptable recovery meal, right? 🙂 Nom Nom! I can’t wait. I’ll be thinking of the yumminess for 13.1 miles!

  57. Seriously, awesome!!!! Just what I needed on this rainy Sunday morning. Have leftovers for tomorrow (or maybe dinner lol)

  58. Hello! I made this and it was impossibly delicious! Now I feel like I can actually get enough stodge in my day and not starve. I’d really like to know what is the best way to store the bread? x

  59. I buy bananas and don’t let anyone touch them until they get brown and nasty…… for the sole purpose of making this AMAZZZZZZZING banana bread!

  60. French toast is one of my favorite foods EVER and I have missed it since going paleo…the concept of Paleo french toast is making me drool!

    BUT: I can’t eat bananas. Never have. The smell alone makes me puke. Any ideas on what to sub in? Maybe part applesauce and part pumpkin or sweet potato mash? Thanks — love this blog!

      1. I will definitely give it a go…it’s too tempting not to! Approximately how much would I need for sweet potatoes? 3 smallish ones? Enough to make 1.5-2 cups?

        PS – I just rediscovered your blog and love your recipes and hilarity. Thanks for being awesome!

  61. I had to hide bananas from my husband in order to make this banana bread. They never go bad in my house before they are eaten all up!

    I actually skipped the sweetener and added an extra banana… it turned out amazing. It was gone before I could even think about turning it into french toast. My husband even loved this and he is SUPER skeptical of paleo desserts.

    Oh… also pureed

    1. cashews, coconut oil, and bananas are amazing on their own. I had to say out loud “Kerrisan, stop eating this or the bread is going to be icky.”

      Good news: I formed some sort of will power and the banana bread did not suffer from my constant snacking and licking.

  62. So, yesterday, I stumbled upon this little recipe that might make this banana bread even more amazing….I know….hard to believe. The recipe was for chocolate surprise banana muffins.
    On the outside, looks just like a banana muffin….cut it open, and chocolatey goodness awaits.
    How do they do this? After making the batter, set some aside, and mix in some cocoa powder, then partially fill the muffin (or bread) tin with regular batter, put a spoonfull of chocolatey batter on top, and top off with regular batter to hide the chocolate. Bake as usual. I’m gonna try it this weekend.

      1. I made the chocolate filled banana muffins today. Damn good. I made them as I posted it above. Next time, I think I’d add more cocoa powder, and maybe some chocolate chips to make it even more chocolatey. I didn’t measure the amount of batter or cocoa powder. I’d guess it was a little more than a cup of batter, and I just kept adding cocoa powder, stirring, and tasting until I was happy with the flavor. Give it a shot…..super yummy.

        1. I wish I had thought of this before…..I would have added chocolate protein powder to the chocolatey batter….mmmmmm protein and chocolate.

  63. Hi Juli,

    I’ve made this banana bread twice now but it always keeps collapsing in the center! I tried baking it for longer, but the outsides burned while the insides still collapsed. I still ate it anyway and it was DELICIOUS, but any suggestions to stop it from collapsing?

  64. This was the BEST gluten free banana bread I’ve ever made. I’ve tried lots of combinations too!! THANK YOU!! Your recipes are awesome! All that I changed was that I only had lightly salted cashews and I only had peanut oil so I used that instead of walnut oil. 🙂

  65. I made this tonight and did not have any roasted cashews so I used raw cashews and just added 1 extra TBSP of Walnut oil and the bread was AMAZING! Thanks so much for creating things that still make me feel like I can indulge but still eat Paleo “style”!

  66. Holy balls! This is a great recipe!!! Made two loaves of the banana bread and I’m not sure if we’ll have any left to make french toast. Whatevs. The banana bread is delicious. I love it so much I want to marry it.

  67. This one is truly a PaleOMG recipe!! I made this for breakfast this morning. I ran out of cashews and made it with walnuts instead. Still turned out AMAZING!! Thanks for sharing! Keep ’em coming!

  68. I did the banana bread for our Easter brunch. My non-paleo family were amazed on how moist and delicious the bread was. Thanks for the recipe!

  69. I LOVE this! My family doesan’t always “get” my paleo ways but no one questioned it with this meal. They just dug in and LOVED it! So glad I found you!!

  70. I am going to have to try this recipe. It looks delicious. I have a question for you though. Where do you buy all your nuts? Do you use raw? Soaked? Sprouted? Dehydrated? Roasted? I am so confused about this whole area. I have 5 kids and we just started eating paleo and as you can see, this diet is going to cost us a small fortune. Do you buy in bulk somewhere? I saw some raw organic cashews at Amazon and they are 10.50 a pound. But I don’t know if I am supposed to soak and roast/dehydrate those? Thanks

    1. I usually eat raw or roasted. I don’t really know what sprouted is like. I just buy them at the store or at no need to soak them really.

  71. I finally made the banana bread (no french toast)! This ish was the BOMB!!! As soon as I took it out the over, I had to taste a piece…OMG! I must admit, I have eaten half of the loaf already and I DO NOT feel guilty! lmbo! Thanks girlie for the recipe 🙂

    I’m so bummed – I made this last night and the inside was still raw. I’m still getting used to baking “paleo”. I ended up baking it on the low end of your time range because the top of the bread was completely brown and looked “done”. I’ll plan on baking it next time ~30-32 minutes. I have a gas oven – have people found that they have to bake it a little longer? The ends of the bread were cooked and they were delish.

    1. Outside was great. Looked done as you said. Stuck a wood toothpick down center came up clean. Took it out to flip onto the cooling rack. First most of the very bottom stuck (oiled the entire inside well) along with small chunks above it revealing the middle was still gooey. Did exactly as instructed even pan size and didn’t use Bob but actual blanched almond flour. Three things: if I left it in any longer, it wouldn’t have been edible (really burnt), my pan is glass, and I’m down here in the humid south. What should I have done differently? Thanks so much 🙂

  73. My fav! I think yours is my favorite paleo blog on the planet. Today I used this recipe as a base to make pumpkin bread. I tried it with 1 banana, a small can of pumpkin, 3 softened dates, and at the very end mix in a lots of frozen whole cranberries. Good. Needs some tweaking – just a little too moist, I’ll probably cut the pumpkin down to 1 C next time.
