  1. Lauren, or anyone else who is an experienced baker:

    Is it safe to overhang parchment paper (as suggested in this recipe) when baking in a gas oven?

    I know it sounds like a silly question, but the thought of using any kind of paper in my gas oven always makes me a bit nervous.

  2. Hi Lauren,
    First I’d like to say that it’s always a pleasure to hear about your new recipes!

    I’m allergic to eggs and currently am on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which doesn’t allow plantains. I have strong cravings for bread/crackers… Do you think I can use bananas instead of plantains? Did anyone try to make this recipe without eggs?

    Regarding the coconut flour and arrowroot flour, can I use sun flour / grinded sunflower seeds or a different nut or seed flour?

    Thank you so much

  3. It’s stuff like this that keeps me motivated!! Thank you Lauren! I have been using many of your recipes for AIP. This was fantastic, and I am going to experiment now with canned pumpkin! Thanks again for the awesome recipe!

  4. We just made this bread exactly as this recipe is written and it’s good! My girls are dancing around the house with their “cake bread” and I am trying to save some for when their dad gets home from work. Thank you for all the work you have done. It has made my family so happy!

  5. Here in the Caribbean coconut flour and arrowroot flour are VERY EXPENSIVE. I will trying freshly grated cassava and eddoes in this recipe. I have tried both in other gluten free nut free recipes and have worked well for me. And a whole lot cheaper. I grow these root veggies and am always satisfied with the result. Will let you know. Thanks for the recipe. I like adding fresh blended herbs to my breads. Great post.

  6. This looks great! I am so happy to find an egg free banana bread recipe for my son. And I can always count on you to provide one with coconut flour 🙂 I love your site and have been following you since you started it. Thank you for your example and wonderful information & recipes!
    Do you think this recipe would still work if it is not as thin but cooked in a deeper pan like a loaf pan in place of a square pan?

  7. Just made this tonight, and it turned out so great! Thanks so much for the recipe, I had been craving ‘banana bread’ and this hit the spot, without derailing all the progress I’ve been making on AIP.
