This wonderfully moist and delicious paleo lemon banana bread is nut free and easy to make. The drizzle of lemon glaze makes this a beautiful Springtime treat!
I’ve been baking a lot more lately, and I’ve been enjoying it. I’m usually not the best baker, but sometimes I get lucky with recipes that become household favorites. With Spring just around the corner, I’ve been craving some kind of lemon-y treat to brighten up our palate and I’m excited to share a delicious and healthy lemon banana bread recipe with you all.
Paleo Lemon Banana Bread Recipe
Before creating this recipe, I was actually planning to bake some nut free banana bread using some very ripe bananas that were begging to be used. However, I quickly changed my mind after seeing some yummy looking lemon bars that my friend posted on social media which made me crave a lemon dessert. And I thought, “Why not combine the two together?”
I immediately started testing out the recipe, and I just love how delicious the final result is. This is a paleo lemon banana bread made with coconut flour and the texture is so incredibly moist and fluffy. The flavor is so amazing as well!
Healthy Lemon Banana Bread Made with Coconut Flour
This paleo banana bread recipe with lemon is made with coconut flour. I often get questions about what to substitute coconut flour with in recipes, but coconut flour acts very differently from other paleo flours. I wouldn’t recommend using anything else.
One of the main factors that makes coconut flour so unique is that it absorbs a lot of moisture compared other flours. This is why you’ll find a large volume of wet ingredients in this paleo banana bread recipe, like eggs, lemon juice, bananas, and ghee. I highly recommend you stick to the original recipe!
Tips for Making Paleo Lemon Banana Bread Recipe
- Use ripe bananas for the best texture, moisture level, and sweetness.
- I wouldn’t recommend any other substitutions for coconut flour, since it’s unique and acts very differently from other paleo flours.
- I’ve never tried substituting the eggs with flax eggs or applesauce, so I can’t recommend those and cannot guarantee results.
- Use high quality coconut butter to make the lemon glaze. Cheaper brands won’t melt properly when heated. This is my favorite brand.
- This nut free banana bread is made in a 8.5″ x 4.5″ standard loaf pan. If you use a larger pan, you’ll have to reduce the baking time and the bread will be shorter in height.
Hope these tips help. If you have any other questions about this delicious and healthy lemon banana bread, just leave me a comment below!

Paleo Lemon Banana Bread (Nut Free)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a 8.5"x4.5" loaf pan with parchment paper with the ends hanging off the sides.
- Mash the bananas, and combine them with eggs, ghee, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
- Add coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and sea salt, and whisk together until fully combined.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.

- Use the parchment paper to remove the bread out of the loaf pan, and cool completely on a cooling rack.
- While the bread in cooling, make the lemon glaze by combining all its ingredients together in a small saucepan and heat over the lowest heat until completely melted and liquified. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of warm water to thin it out.
