YAY!! So much Paleo Kitchen in one post. Not only am I sharing another sneak peek recipe from my newest cookbook, The Paleo Kitchen, but I’m also announcing my first book tour that George and I will be going on starting next week!! I’ve never done an actual book tour before, so this should definitely be interesting. I’ve done some signings here and there for my first cookbook, OMG. That’s Paleo? but never speaking, or cooking, or discussing the book in several different cities. Now all I’ve been doing is figuring out what I’m going to wear and how I’m going to pack all of these outfits into one carry on bag.

This is what I’ve come up with: I’m going to pack each outfit, clothes and jewelry, into individual vacuum seal bags. That way they will all fit into the suitcase when I head out to all these stops. The only issue is, even though they will fit in the bag when vacuum sealed, I won’t exactly have a vacuum with me while I’m on the road, so packing the outfits back into the bag after I’ve already worn them will be tough. I’ll make it work, but it’s going to be a pain. I also really hope I can find an iron. Balls.

I’m so excited to hit some of these new cities!! I’ve never been to Seattle, Portland, or New York City. Most of these places I’ll only be in for a day or even just half a day, but I want to try to eat at cool restaurants while I’m there. So if you live in any of these towns below or have been to any great restaurants in those places, please let me know!! I’d love to try some local restaurants.

Here are the dates for upcoming book signings! Remember, this is just our first trip so we will soon be hitting other areas and cities throughout the summer all over the US! Hope to meet some new faces!

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star

4.9 from 30 reviews

  • Yield: 1 loaf 1x



For the pan

For the banana bread:

  • 4 medium bananas (about 1 pound)
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted grass-fed butter, melted
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine-grain sea salt

For the swirl:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-by-5-inch metal loaf pan and line it with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the bananas, eggs, butter, and almond butter in a food processor or mixing bowl and mix until the ingredients are well blended. Add the coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and salt and continue to mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  3. In a double boiler over medium-low heat, mix together the swirl ingredients. Heat, stirring often, until the chocolate has melted.
  4. Pour the bread batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly. As soon as you pour the batter, pour the chocolate swirl directly on top and use a knife to swirl the chocolate throughout the loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before serving.

    I made this the other night to bring to a Rosh Hashana dinner. There was a guy there who is diabetic and can’t eat much sugar. He said it was one of the best things he’s ever eaten. I had the last piece this morning with tea. The flavor, texture, and level of sweetness were perfect.

  2. Lindsay says:

    I just tried this- I baked for over 1 hour and when I let cool it still seems too moist inside? Does this subside overnight? I re-read instructions to ensure I did everything the same- only change out was used Almond Flour instead of Coconut flour. Love the taste 😉

    1. juli says:

      changing the coconut flour for almond flour was the mistake. coconut flour is completely different and soaks up a lot more moisture than almond flour does. changing that ingredient is what changed the recipe

  3. Katie says:

    I just tried this tonight, oh man is it yummy! I’m just wondering if I’d be able to sub the banana for pumpkin to make it a pumpkin bread? Would it be a 1:1 ratio? Would pumpkin and chocolate even taste ok together??

    Thanks so much for the great recipe!

    1. juli says:

      yeah that would work!

    2. Alyssa says:

      I was just going to ask this question! I am so glad I read the comments first. Can’t wait to try making this! I’ve made it the way the recipe is written and it is amazing.

  4. Nancy says:

    OMG this is the best paleo recipe I have tried. I made this today and it is SO good! Thank you!

  5. Ramya says:

    This recipe is so awesome. I tried it last night and it came out moist and delicious. I didn’t have much hope for it since I am really really bad at baking. I made sure to follow the recipe to the t . It turned out to be one of the best desert I’ve eaten since I went paleo.My husband didn’t even know there was banana in it(he does not like banana bread) and he loved it…I just told him it’s regular chocolate cake I made with flour and he ate it and asked for more.

  6. Amber. says:

    did this recipe just now… for our Gillies (twin toddlers)… and they approved!!! Thank you for some amazing paleo recipes the whole family can enjoy!!!

  7. Kristina says:

    Heyy! I made this from the cookbook, had it on my Xmas wish list. It was good, but I left out the chocolate swirl since I think I’m sensitive to chocolate… Oh how I miss it once I can’t have it!

  8. Gabrielle says:

    Made this last night, I was really impressed with the moist texture but my chocolate didn’t swirl very well. Maybe I don’t have the right technique, it mostly just sat on top and created a chocolate v-shape in the middle of the loaf :/
    Still tastes great though!

  9. Mary Yeager says:

    I make this bread on a regular basis. I’m so glad that you have cookbooks out! I do better with hard copy! Mary

    We really loved this recipe. Thanks for posting such great stuff! I never feel like I’m suffering or sacrificing anything when I use your recipes. We made this and the churro waffles this weekend.
