Banana Date Bread

Sometimes I get that baking itch, and although I try not to keep to many treats in the house (even paleo treats) this banana bread is pretty darn healthy. I also practiced control had 2 slices with coffee for breakfast one day & have left the rest as snacks for my husband & son. Go me, insert pat on the back.

This little loaf is dense, moist & lightly sweet with a spiced flavor. Perfect coffee bread.

  • 10 pitted dates, soaked for 3+ hours
  • 4 eggs, room temp
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, full fat
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 vanilla bean scrapping
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom
  • Pinch ground ginger
  • 2 ripe bananas


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Drain soaking dates & place in blender with eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil & vanilla bean.
  • Blend until smooth & frothy, about 1 minute on medium high speed.
  • In a bowl whisk together coconut flour, spices, salt & baking powder.
  • Fold wet mixture in to dry mixture, combine thoroughly.
  • It will start off watery & thicken as you mix.
  • Mash one of your bananas & fold it in to mix.
  • Pour mixture into loaf pan. Slice your second banana & arrange on top in pattern or design of choice.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, then insert toothpick to check if it’s done. If toothpick doesn’t come out clean, the bake for another 5 minutes & check again. Mine baked almost 40 minutes.
  • Repeat until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • The edges will be a little darker, as will the peaks, but most of the loaf will remain golden when done.

    Do you think this could be made into muffins?
    1. yes, but the recipe is sticky, so you will need to use a really good non-stick muffin tin, or muffin cups with a waxed or parchment paper lining- paper will stick to them.
