Banana bread is fantastic, I mean, what else do you do with overripe bananas? Really… I’m asking. Seems I get a pile-up of bananas in the freezer that have past their general ripeness, then they just lurk around the freezer. Sometimes as I open the freezer door they seemingly jump out at me. More accurately they just slide out of the door, but I’m sure those bananas are out to get me. Ninja banana’s waiting in the freezer shadows, poised for attack.
Paleo banana bread is one of the least complex paleo baked items and so darned delicious, but what do you do when you are craving a savory baked goodie? Well, a little-roasted garlic really brings out the banana, but tones down the sweetness, in my opinion. Now that I am safely away from the imminent attack of those dark frozen ninja banana’s I can think of things to do with them; banana ice cream perhaps, or banana pancakes? You could always make our fantastic paleo banana rhubarb crisp. Of course, this should be on the top of your list: garlic paleo banana bread. A great side with salads, or just on its own.

Thank you for this delicious sounding recipe, Holley! I’ll have to try this myself sometime soon too!.
The point of the Paleo diet is, and I feel some people forget this, to not only diet, but to eat delicious foods at the same time. Paleo is the only diet I’ve come across that cuts out food groups, yet still focusses on everyone’s need to eat great food.
I’m a real foodie, and would not survive on any other diet, but Paleo has been very good for me. I’ve written about a couple of my favourite cookbooks here: http://cookbook-reviews.net/review-the-paleo-grubs-book/
Can I use only egg whites? if so, how many and should I add more coconut oil if this is the case?
I’m sorry, I don’t know. I usually use all the egg. You can absolutely try it, but I can’t predict the results. You can try adding a little apple sauce, or coconut oil, sure, with the bananas in there you could probably get away with just egg whites, and no other added ingredients? Let us know how it goes!! Sorry I couldn’t be more help.
Ok. Thanks! I’ll update you
