I have one last gingerbread recipe that I wanted to sneak in before Christmas…  I did warn you that I was obsessed with gingerbread lately. 🙂

This Grain-free Gingerbread Banana Bread is a light and fluffy banana bread seasoned with molasses, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It smells just AMAZING as it cooks and it tastes just as good, all while being Paleo, Gluten-free, Grain-free, and Dairy-free.

Is there really anything better than ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and molasses all together?? Especially this time of year.

The smell alone makes me think of the holidays, and it instantly warms up the kitchen.

I like this Grain-free Gingerbread Banana Bread because it takes a classic recipe that I love… banana bread… and dresses it up a bit. Makes it more festive.

And more importantly, it makes it ok to have gingerbread for breakfast 🙂

Not that there is anything wrong with having gingerbread for breakfast or dessert for breakfast that is. I have had cookies for breakfast for the last two days, so I can’t talk. I blame Christmas.

However, there’s something just so satisfying about warm banana bread in the morning… with a nice cup of tea or coffee.

It’s really the best.

And it’s really this best right now when it also tastes like gingerbread goodness. Thick gingerbread cake goodness…. you know what I’m talking about it.

I decided to sprinkle mine with some melted dairy-free chocolate. And if you want to do that too, just melt some dairy-free chocolate ( I like Enjoy-life chocolate chips), with some coconut oil and then sprinkle away!

You will not be dissapointed.

This Grain-free Gingerbread Banana Bread would be great to bring to a holiday party, or to a loved ones house, or even to be given as a gift.

I love receiving baked goods as gifts and extra points if they are grain-free, gluten-free, and paleo.

One last thing… don’t be alarmed if you eat more than one piece in one sitting. It’s hard to stop once you start… I’m not on slice 3. Woops!

Happy Holidays!
