Paleo  & Whole30 banana bread is part of my weekly recipe delights.  

When I think of homemade banana bread heartwarming childhood memories come to mind.  At age 12, banana bread was the first food I baked from scratch.   Throughout my childhood, my parents took us to our Bobaygeon cottage (north of Toronto) every summer weekend.  Baking banana bread for the family became my role and eventually a duty.  On Saturday night when the mosquitos made it impossible to sit by the fire, we headed indoors to watch movies on cassette tapes.  I went straight to for the kitchen to bake banana bread.  While the bread baked, we relished in the aromas of sweet baking banana.  My youngest brother would say every 15 minutes, “Is it ready yet?”  Once cooked I would let the bread cool, keeping my sibling’s appetites in further anticipation.  Once cooled, I cut the bread into slices thick than normal, but just thin enough to fit into the toaster.  I toasted the slices giving them crunchy ends and bits, then smothered them with butter.  My family loved my bread.   Their approval of my cooking has certainly helped shape my love of and career around food.   

I’m so thrilled that you can use the FRESH DOH Grain & Gluten Free Fresh Pasta Dough Mix to make grain-free, Paleo, and Whole30 banana bread.  This recipe is super easy and turns out a mean banana bread.   After the bread has cooled, you can toast it or put slices in the panini press.  On the Paleo diet, dairy is prohibited.  So, I’ve smothered this grain-free version in avocado butter!  Add whatever ingredients you like to the DOH before baking.  Dried fruit, seeds, and nuts are all lovely additions to this sweet bread.


The most appropriate way to describe this bread is dense, spongy, chewy, and sweet!  Delicious!  It’s hard to believe it has no wheat! The pleasant bitterness from the walnut pieces nicely offsets the banana sweetness.  


The predominant taste sensation of banana bread is sweetness, requiring a sweet wine to match.  Icewine would be far too sweet.  Choose a late harvest wine, such as Late Harvest Riesling, Vidal, or Gewurztraminer.  Just always make sure that the wine is sweeter than all the sweet items on your dessert plate.


With one package of DOH, 1 tablespoon of gluten-free baking powder, and 3 bananas, you can make the most delicious banana bread in less than an hour, all the while staying within your PALEO & WHOLE30 lifestyle!  You can satisfy that comfort food craving for banana bread without the wheat and grain.

I hope you enjoy this recipe using the FRESH DOH fresh pasta dough mix for making scrumptious, homemade banana bread, available on Amazon in North America.

1 package of FRESH DOH Grain & Gluten Free Fresh Pasta Dough Mix

1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder

3 very ripe bananas

1/2 cup unsalted walnut pieces or favourite nuts (optional)

Avocado butter (optional)

No sugar added marmalade (optional)

Coconut cream (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 F (170 C).  Transfer DOH mix to food processor or mixer.  With the mixer going add banana, one at a time until well mixed and DOH is goowy.  Remove bowl from machine.  Fold in nuts.  Transfer goowey DOH to well-greased loaf pan (4 cup/4″ X 8″).   Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf, comes out clean. Let bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.   Slice and serve or put in toaster or panini press and toast until golden.  Serve with avocado butter, marmalade, and coconut cream for a yummy dessert experience.





The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
