Granola Topped Paleo Banana Bread

Granola Topped Paleo Banana Bread

If banana bread is your thing but you want a healthy no oat, no nuts recipe then this paleo banana bread is the one for you! Its also high in protein. gluten free and believe me when I say its the perfect texture!

I have a few banana bread recipes on my blog…. Caramel Cashew Banana Bread and Salted Caramel Banana Bread are just a couple of them but I often tend to use oats as a base instead of flour so I decided to get a bit creative and make up a banana bread that didn’t use oats as the base but used coconut flour instead. Alongside the coconut flour I added a small amount of vanilla protein but this is very optional and you could sub with extra coconut flour.

For the wet ingredients you’ll need eggs, bananas of course as well as coconut oil and maple syrup. I mixed in some yummy chocolate chips into the bread but the genius part of this whole recipe for me is the sprinkling of granola (paleo granola) on top! It adds such a great texture to the bread with a little bit of crunch.

Overall this texture came out perfectly which I do think is key with banana bread. As lets be honest no-one likes a dry banana bread!
