Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread




  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup Truly Grass Fed Ghee Clarified Butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or sub gluten free all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease or line a 9×5 loaf pan, set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan or in the microwave, melt the ghee. Once melted, immediately remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add the mashed banana, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Stirring continually, slowly pour in the melted ghee. Whisk until fully incorporated.
  5. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Using a spatula, gently fold together until no clumps of flour remain.
  6. Prep the cinnamon swirl by whisking together the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  7. Transfer half the batter into the loaf pan. Spread into an even layer. Sprinkle half the cinnamon sugar over the top, about 2 tbsp.
  8. Dollop the remaining batter in small scoops over the cinnamon swirl layer. Spread into an even layer. Scatter the remaining cinnamon sugar mix over the top. Using a skewer or toothpick gently swirl the top layer of batter and cinnamon sugar together.
  9. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack. Slice and top with more ghee, if desired.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
