I am always on the lookout for the perfect healthy banana bread recipe. I have tried dozens as it’s a favorite for the whole family. I have found tons of banana bread recipes that are good but none that I could deem 100% healthy and good till now! Almond flour has always been tricky and most of the recipes I tried, the bread would either come out too dry or tasting like cardboard. I found this one last week and made muffins instead of a loaf but today decided to make it as a loaf and it’s absolutely delicious and moist. I usually change a little something in a recipe but with this one I didn’t change a thing. When making muffins though, I found they were ready within 20 minutes. Today the loaf did take almost an hour, I think it varies depending on our oven. I prefer this one with walnuts but when I made them for the kids last week I omitted them. I also used raw honey vs. honey and used Greek yogurt vs. plain yogurt. Again I think these are preferences. Give this one a try and I am sure it will become a family favorite! Would taste divine with ice cream! Lol
2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

3 bananas ripe, mashed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup walnuts chopped (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Grease a large bread pan with butter or coconut oil.
In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients: almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the eggs. Add in the honey, yogurt, mashed bananas, and vanilla. Whisk together until combined.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined. Fold in the chopped walnuts.
Pour the batter into a large bread pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until the center is firm.
