Easy Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread – it will become a Sunday morning staple!


  • 1 3/4 cup mashed bananas (about 3 large)
  • 1 egg, beaten (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups paleo baking flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour)
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons ghee, melted (or coconut oil)
  • 1/31/2 cup semi-sweet/dairy-free chocolate chips (you decide how chocolate-y you want them!)
  • Optional: have an extra banana that is ripe to garnish the top


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Grease 9 x 5 x 3 inch loach pan; set aside.
  3. Measure mashed bananas into a medium bowl.
  4. Add beaten egg; mix well.
  5. In separate bowl, combine flour, soda, and salt.
  6. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture.
  7. Mix in chocolate chips; stir to combine.
  8. Mix in melted ghee.
  9. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  10. Optional: take extra banana and carefully cut a think strip and place on the top of the loaf; gently pressing down into the dough with the palm of your hand.
  11. Bake 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  12. Let rest 5 minutes in the pan; carefully use spatula to loosen sides and then carefully turn out onto a wire rack to cool.


  • If you want this a little sweeter you can also had 1/2 cup of coconut sugar into the egg + banana mixture.
  • You can place a piece of parchment across the bread pan (the short way) and then press down – place the prepared banana bread mixture on top, making sure there are flaps on either side. This makes it easier to lift out when done baking.
