This healthy banana bread recipe is Paleo, gluten free, grain free, dairy free and nut free. It is high in protein, low in sugar and tastes great with sweet or savory toppings. Better yet, this Tahini Banana Collagen Bread is only sweetened with bananas and made with just 8 ingredients!
I made this banana bread in collaboration with Ancient Nutrition (on Instagram) and liked it so much, that I thought it needed a permanent home on the blog.
I'm not a big fan of eating plain, raw bananas. But, I absolutely LOVE using them in baked goods, treats and smoothies. In my opinion, they're the ultimate sweetener. They aren't too sweet, usually enhance the texture of any baked good and I enjoy the flavor.
This Paleo tahini bread only uses one ripe banana. And by ripe, I mean semi-ripe; yellow with just a few brown speckles. However, I'm sure any level of ripeness would work for this recipe.
Since this bread isn't overly sweet, it works well eaten with both sweet and savory toppings. My favorite ways to consume this loaf:
- slather a piece in dairy free yogurt and top with fresh raspberries
- cover a slice in mashed avocado with a runny egg on top
- drizzle a portion with tahini and sprinkle on cinnamon, bee pollen and dried cranberries
ALL are amazing! You can thank me later 😉

How To Make Collagen Bread
