Paleo Banana Bread/Cake



12 slice(s)


  • 50 grams Almond Flour
  • 90 grams Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 70 grams dates, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 300 grams ripe banana, mashed, (approx. 2-3 bananas)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 80 grams chocolate chips

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 180˚C (or 160˚C, fan-forced) and line a bread tin with baking paper.

  2. 2. Add flours, cinnamon, bicarb, salt, and dates to TMX bowl and mix for 8 seconds, SP8. Scrape down sides if necessary.

  3. 3. Add coconut oil, banana, eggs, and vanilla and mix 5 seconds, SP5.

  4. 4. Add chocolate chips and mix 3 seconds, Reverse, SP4.

  5. 5. Add mix to prepared tin and bake in oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden on top and a knife inserted in centre of the loaf comes out clean. You may need to cover it with foil midway through cooking - my oven required me to have done this but I was distracted! tmrc_emoticons.)

  6. 6. Allow bread to cool almost completely in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack.

Mill your own almond flour and coconut flour first! Because I'd run out of the real stuff, I used a 'cheat's coconut flour' and milled 200g of desiccated coconut for 30 secs on SP9. It'll be a moist version, but I think it is lovely in this bread. Otherwise make your coconut flour ahead of time by drying the leftover pulp from making your own coconut milk- it's too easy not to!

Beautiful served warm out of the oven, and totally yum out of the fridge with a cup of tea, too!

  • I used 140 grams almond flour

    I used 140 grams almond flour initially but added 50 grams of coconut flour because the mixture was too 'wet'.  I substituted sultanas for the dates.  I omitted the chocolate chips but chose not to add any sweetener for my first go.  I used the reversed blade for everything and erred on the slow side for speed.  tmrc_emoticons.-)

    Extremely easy to make, beautiful flavour combinations of dates and chocolate, thanks for sharing the recipe! Amazing how sweet something can be without adding extra sugar...apart from what the chocolate contains of course. Thankyou.

    Delicious. Very moist & the family loved it! I made my own coconut and almond 'flour' as suggested. Too easy. Only had 220g bananas so only added 3 eggs instead of 4 and may have added a few more extra choc chips too!
