Banana, date & walnut bread. (Paleo & SCD).

Banana, Date & Walnut Bread
 You can't really tell in the photo, but these are mini tins.  You can put the mixture into one small loaf pan or these three minis.  I like the minis and hopefully it will help me eat smaller pieces! :)

Banana, Date & Walnut Bread.

1/2 cup walnuts
6 medjool dates
1+1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup honey
1 banana
3 eggs

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius (320F).
  • Put walnuts and dates in food processor and pulse until in small pieces.
  • Put flours, soda and spice into a mixing bowl and combine, breaking up any lumps.
  • Melt coconut oil in microwave and add to flour mixture.
  • Warm honey in the microwave then add to flour mixture and stir.
  • In food processor, blend banana and eggs.
  • Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir well.

  1. Best Paleo banana bread I have ever made. Love it.

    1. How wonderful! Thanks for letting me know. Happy dance! :)

    2. I'm just baking this right now. I saw your Cookies made with Tahini but I didn't have any and suddenly wanted a sweet treat, I haven't had anything for ages.

    3. Awesome, Kat! Enjoy the Banana Bread. :) xx

    4. Excellent Banana Bread! I made the big loaf and I think I'd rather make the smaller ones in future. The big amount took a bit over an hour to cook and even then it might have been a tiny bit undercooked. I kept it in the fridge and a nice thick slice was really great as a quick breakfast with my coffee when rushing to get to work.

  2. Made this today, and can't stop eating it!! Absolutely moorish!! Tku for sharing your recipe!!!

  3. Mixed spices????? which spices?

  4. In OZ, mixed spice is a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. :)

  5. Just to say I just discovered this recipe and it is delicious! Best paleo bake EVER. I wanted more of a tray bake so poured the batter into a 9 x 9inch tray. Went down a treat with non-paleo colleagues too. Lovely warmed up with a cup of (herbal) tea in the afternoon. Thanks so much.

    1. Awesome! Thanks for letting me know- made my day. :)

  6. Love this recipe. It reminds me so much of the date and nut bread my Mom used to make but with a nice banana flavor added to it. I have made gluten free banana breads before but this is more like my regular version. Thanks for sharing on Gluten Free Fridays.

  7. This sounds great! Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! :)

    Its live now!

  8. The best recipe ever :-) I am adding pieces of chocolate sometimes as well.. it's yuummy :-)

  9. Have made this recipe before and loved it! So I would like to make it again, but I am counting my macro's now for the fitness. So I wonder if I can leave out some of the coconut oil? Because this makes the fat content of 1 slice quite high..
