Paleo Banana Bread

I’ve been baking things for the kids lately, and this banana bread was a hit 🙂

I made them yesterday before the cyclone came, just in case we lost power (we have been without power for a week during a cyclone a few years ago).  I didn’t stock up on tinned food like all of the other people in town, it didn’t make sense to me because we don’t eat tinned food.  I made sure I had boiled eggs, cooked sausages and meatballs, cans of tuna, banana bread, bottled water, ice and a supply of fruit and vegetables.

 Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo Banana Bread

  • 1 ¼ cup macadamia nuts
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cacao (if you want to make it chocolate)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  1. Preheat the oven to a moderately-low heat, 160 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the macadamia nuts in the food processor and turn it on.  Let it process the nuts until it turns into butter, about 2-3 minutes is all it takes.
  3. Add the bananas and egg and let it process again until it makes a nice smooth batter.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth and well mixed.
  5. Pour the batter into a large loaf pan (line the pan with baking paper) and place it in the oven.
  6. Bake for an hour, then press the top of the loaf to see if it feels cooked.  It should feel spongy and not too soft (inserting a toothpick into the loaf doesn’t give you a good indicator if this is cooked as it will still come out clean, you need to go by feel).


Yours in health
