Paleo Banana Split Recipe
This Banana Split is the BEST Paleo Banana Recipe I have ever tried. Even if you don’t eat Paleo, you will LOVE this healthy dessert. My husband said it’s the best thing he has ever eaten … Yeah, I know huge statement, but it really is that GOOD!
I am not sure about your house, but in our house, my kids CONSTANTLY ask for treats. So I try to make them think some super healthy foods are treats. For example getting almond butter (nothing but almonds) spread on some organic green apple slices or honey drizzled over some organic berries.
Sometimes the treats are more extravagant like this Paleo Triple Berry Crisp or this seriously amazing Banana Split that uses banana slices, almond butter, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, honey, coconut shreds, unsweetened cocoa chips, and granola (oat free to make it a true Paleo Banana Recipe).
We have been on a mission to become a healthier home by eating healthy (mainly Paleo) and eliminating toxins where we can. The things you put into your body can be healing or harmful. I have learned that the hard way with my Rheumatoid Arthritis. What I eat can either help fight inflammation or fuel inflammation in my body. Inflammation is the root cause of so many diseases, and we are all better off trying to eliminate as many foods as we can that increase inflammation.
Okay, enough of that jabber … on to why you came here in the first place.
Why This Banana Split Is My FAVORITE Paleo Banana Recipe
- It tastes like heaven in your mouth … okay okay not really heaven but seriously it is so good!
- The ingredients provide nutrients and health benefits.
- No added sugar that does not occur naturally in the fruit or honey.
- Even the little kids will love it.
- Incredibly easy and quick to make. No baking or cooking required.
- You can through it all together without measuring out ingredients if you want.
How To Make Banana Splits
You can slice your bananas right down the middle as I did here, or you can cut into bite sizes. Next, add a generous amount of almond butter (or peanut butter), sprinkle your seed mixture, granola, and coconut flakes over the top. Then you will drizzle with honey and top it off with unsweetened cocoa chips.
Unsweetened cocoa chips are bitter and taste awful by themselves, but when paired with a dessert like this Banana Split they are delicious.
The recipe card instructions below give measurements for an idea, BUT you can really do whatever you want lol. I never really measure it out with this healthy dessert recipe.
You can substitute any of these ingredients and replace with what you have in the pantry!
For this dessert to truly be your favorite Paleo Banana Recipe you will need to eliminate the granola or use an oat-free granola made from nuts and seeds.
If you make this delicious Banana Split recipe, please comment and let me know how it was, or if you used any substitutions. I am always up for trying new things!! Or if you have any other favorite Paleo Banana Recipes that I need to try send them my way! I’m a huge banana dessert fan.
I feel like it is always important to note that if you are new to your health food journey be sure to read labels!!!! So many products add terrible ingredients or sugar. So read labels always. If you are not able to make drastic changes all at once, then start small!
We try to eat healthy in our house, BUT that doesn’t mean we are perfect at it. Nope Nope Nope, but we try!

*If you are worried about strict Paleo make sure you always read your labels to make sure the items you use are Paleo compliant. *You can cut bananas into circle bites if that is easier for you. Either way it will taste amazing. *Nutritional information listed is an estimate.
I got the idea for creating this style of a banana split from Minimalist Baker.
