Paleo. Banana Bread.

When you have ripe bananas lying around (or you avoid eating bananas all week in order to have ripe bananas) this is the recipe to use them for.

If you’re like me and you’re still trying to keep your 2019 ‘fitness goals’ going strong, this paleo banana bread will taste like a slice of heaven, without all of the guilt of a sugar-filled treat. This is a recipe by Rachel Mansfield, tested and approved.

  • 3 Large Ripe Bananas
  • 1/2 Cup Nut Butter
