Paleo Banana Bread with Cinnamon & Nutmeg

One of the recipes I’m asked for most is a gluten-free or paleo banana bread. So I figured I may as well hop on the self-isolation banana bread train.

Banana bread is one of the recipes I remember always making with my mom when I was little. While delicious, that recipe uses the classic white flour and white sugar — two ingredients I recommend my clients stay away from.

A lot of my acne clients are dealing with digestive issues. Remember, gut health is the foundation to clear skin. It’s actually the first thing I work with my clients on in The Clear Skin Solution.

For many, avoiding grains of all kind is an important part of healing the digestive lining. And in that case, the pre-mixed gluten-free flour blends are usually off the table as they are mostly rice or sorghum-based. Instead, I have them use a combination of grain-free flours/starches in their recipes, like:

  • Almond
  • Arrowroot
  • Cassava
  • Coconut
  • Tapioca

In this paleo banana bread recipe, I used both almond flour and arrowroot starch. These guys keep the bread super moist but don’t crumble apart. Enjoy a slice with my homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte or Red Velvet Latte.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup unpasteurized honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder (I used a paleo one)
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • Optional:
  • 1/3 cup crushed pecans or walnuts for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a bread pan with coconut oil and then line with parchment paper leaving a little on the ends to be able to lift the bread out after baking.
  2. Mash bananas in a bowl. Stir in eggs, honey, olive oil and vanilla. Combine well. (I put everything in my food processor and pulse until smooth)
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients (minus the nut topping).
  4. Add the wet to the drink and stir until well combined.
  5. Pour into bread pan and sprinkle with crushed nuts (if using).
  6. Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes (I have a hot oven and did 40).
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes.
  8. Using the ends of the parchment paper, lift the bread out of the pan and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
