Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo Banana Bread + French Toast

by Chef Wards

This week we prepared a new Paleo Banana Bread recipe. It’s so delicious you would never know it contains ZERO gluten, dairy or processed sugar! The recipe is also easy and versatile—it might just become your new weekly staple.

A slice is satisfying on its own or you can top it with almond butter, coconut butter or dairy-free whipped cream and fresh berries. You can even pour the batter into mini-muffin tins for a kid-friendly snack.

With Mother’s Day coming up, we wanted to raise the bar even more. So using the same simple recipe, we developed the most decadent (and healthy) Banana Bread French Toast. It’s perfect for special occasions and weekend brunches, yet easy enough for every day. How’s that for an added bonus?

After you enjoy this little slice of Paleo heaven, share your comments below or a picture on Facebook.
