Almond Flour Banana Bread

Bananas and Bread. Also known as two staples that I always have in at home. Add them together and you get this tasty creation. This recipe is naturally sweetened with bananas. You can add some honey/maple syrup if you wanted to but I personally didn’t need. I always wait until my bananas are black and spotty. Extra ripe bananas work the BEST!

Something about nut flours interest me so much! I love how different the texture is compared to all-purpose flour. It’s not a type of flour you can just substitute into any recipe that calls for all-purpose flour. For example, coconut flour is very absorbent so you don’t need a large amount in a recipe. In almost all nut flour recipes, eggs are required because of how much liquid it absorbs up. After mixing the batter together, it won’t be runny. It’ll look more dry but don’t worry, it’s like that! When it bakes, it’ll turn out fine!


Two slices – one topped with siggi’s vanilla yogurt & the other topped with woodstock’s crunchy peanut butter!

Trust me. It took real discipline to not want to eat several slices at once. I had to tell myself to eat more mindfully. The bread was so moist (sorry if you hate that word) and packed with natural sweetness and delicious flavor!

I like to add nut butters or yogurts on top of my baked breads for additional flavor. It tastes a lot better that way! But either way (with spread or without), it tastes BOMB!
