Paleo Banana Bread with Walnuts & Raisins

I’m on a bit of a culinary journey at the moment, I’ve started a full-time cookery course with Cooks Academy and I’m absolutely loving it!!

Today was all about bread – so I decided to come up with my own Paleo-Friendly Banana Bread!


This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Paleo.

4oz / 110g Almond Flour
2oz / 55g Coconut Oil, solid
1 tbsp Arrowroot Flour
4 tbsp Agave Nectar
1 1/2 Bananas (the riper the better)
2 eggs

Handful of Walnuts, broken into small pieces
Handful of Raisins
(The walnuts and raisins are a great addition – feel free to add whatever you like!)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°c/356°f.
  2. In a large bowl combine the almond flour and coconut oil. Rub the coconut oil into the flour using your finger tips until it forms small “breadcrumb” like particles, mix in the arrow root.almondcreamed almond

    • Hi Florence,
      Dairy is a product of the mammary gland of mammals. It refers to milk and anything made from milk, like cheese, butter and yogurt. As eggs don’t come from a milk-producing animal and are not made from milk they are not considered to be dairy therefore they are Paleo & Dairy Free. Hope this clears things up for you!

  3. Hi-I am in the U. S. and want to convert to cups. Would this recipe call for 1/2 cup of coconut flour and 1/4 cup of coconut oil?
