Banana Bread {PRIMAL}

Okay, first things first.  This recipe is primal NOT paleo.  I’m working on a primal vs. paleo/what is paleo page, but for now, suffice it to say, the primal diet includes high quality, full fat dairy products while the paleo diet excludes them.  I use butter in this recipe.  Good old fashioned butter, it’s not paleo but it works for me.

Which brings me to the second item of business.  The recipe from which inspired my recipe is paleo.  It’s from Elana’s Pantry and she uses vegan shortening.  I didn’t have vegan shortening so I made sub with butter.  Do what works for you.  If you need to go 100% paleo, by all means, use the original recipe, or…

Number three:  I have a great paleo banana nut recipe here.  The muffins are yummy and can easily be converted to a bread recipe by increasing the baking time to 55-60 minutes.

Lastly, make sure you use really, really ripe bananas.  The ripeness of the banana makes a world of difference in this, or any, banana bread recipe.  And, for your loaf to look like mine it’s crucial you use a 7.5 x 3.5 loaf pan.  I hope you enjoy this: Banana Bread {Primal}.
Priimal nut bread that you will never guess is gluten free!
