I don’t know about you, but I never get tired of banana bread. So this time I’m sharing my Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread; a banana bread recipe that’s perfectly sweet, but not too sweet; perfectly moist, but not too moist. It really is the perfect loaf.
My favorite part about this recipe – aside from the wonderful taste – is that you can make it in the blender! I love blender recipes because there’s not a million dishes to clean; and as a busy mom, the least amount of dishes for me to do, the better!
What you need to make this healthy paleo banana bread
To make this delicious loaf, you need just a handful of simple ingredients:
Bananas: this loaf is sweetened only with the bananas, and don’t even try to skip them or substitute them for something else. It just won’t work. You have been warned.
Almond butter: you can substitute for any other nut butter or even sunflower seed butter
Ghee: you can substitute for coconut oil or butter.
Cacao powder: you can substitute for unsweetened cocoa powder.
Almond flour: this recipe requires the combination of almond flour and the coconut flour. If you decide to test out other flours, just know that I haven’t tested them.
Coconut flour: see above.
Baking powder & Baking soda: in this recipe, the texture of the bread comes out perfect when both baking soda and baking flour are used.
Chocolate chips: I use dairy-free chocolate chips, but you can use what ever chocolate chips that you like!

Looking for a quick and easy fudgy banana bread that you can make in your blender? I've got you. This Paleo Double Fudge Banana Bread is my favorite banana bread recipe here on Kalejunkie, and for good reason. It's sweet, but not too sweet. It's moist, but not too moist, and it stores perfectly, so you can enjoy it all week long. This recipe will be a family favorite for years to come!
4large mashed bananas
1 1/2tspvanilla extract
3/4cupmini chocolate chips, plus extra for the top (I like Enjoy Life’s chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In your blender (YES, your blender), add the mashed bananas, almond butter, and melted ghee. Blend lightly until just combined.
Next, add all remaining ingredients and blend again, this time mixing well.
Pour batter into an 9 x 5 pan greased with ghee, and TOP THAT ISH with a ton more mini chocolate chips.
Bake for 45 minutes.
I like mine just a TINY bit undercooked, so I went for 40 minutes. It's up to you. Enjoy!XO

This was delicious! I used dairy-free (Miyoko’s) butter instead of ghee. It was very chocolatey with a hint of banana sweetness. My only problem was that it totally stuck to the pan even though I used a lot of butter on pan. Next time I will line the pan with parchment.
Hi Dawne! I’m so happy you loved it! I recommend lining the pan with parchment or using oil next time to grease it (Miyoko’s butter is hit or miss when it comes to greasing). I hope it turns out better for you next time!
You would never know this is Paleo – fluffy, moist, chocolatey YUM! Even better a few days later. Followed the recipe to a T minus adding 1tbs coconut sugar since my cacao was unsweetened.. in hindsight not sure it was needed but came out great. The ghee was spot on in flavor complimenting + add those chocolate chips to the top it made an amazing top layer. Recipe is boyfriend approved – loaf didn’t last over 2 days in our house!
Just wondering if I can omit the eggs or maybe substitute something. Thanks,
can I use melted coconut oil in place of melted ghee?
Hi Christal, YES!!!
This was so good! Before baking, I added crushed peanuts on top for texture. The bread itself has a super fluffy and light texture. Also the banana and chocolate combination is delicious. It’s like chocolate cake you can eat for breakfast!
