How to Make Paleo Baking Powder
If you don’t have paleo baking powder on hand you can make your own with 2 parts cream of tartar, 1 part baking soda and 1 part either arrowroot starch or tapioca starch.
In a pinch you can look for a gluten, aluminum and grain free baking powder such as Pamela’s.
How to Make Paleo Banana Bread
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and grease.
In a large bowl combine mashed bananas, almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and vanilla and mix until well combined.
Then in a separate small bowl, combine the coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
Add the eggs to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Then, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until completely combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and LAY SLICED BANANA ON TOP of the batter. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the top is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before gently removing it from the pan to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Take this banana bread to the next level by slathering almond butter all over the top!
Make this an on the go meal by pairing it with a few hard boiled eggs. It’ll be a delicious and filling paleo breakfast! Or make this part of a brunch spread by adding fresh fruit, eggs, bacon and sausage.
It is also a great way to finish a meal and would be a perfect dessert to go along with these Chicken Lettuce Wraps, BBQ Chicken Salad Wraps or this low carb Instant Pot Pot Roast.
