Going Nuts for Banana Bread

This banana bread recipe has a nutty flavor you'll love!

December 17, 2019

Sometimes my kids can get picky about nuts in some of their baked goods. But I miss having that nutty flavor in recipes like banana bread. This recipe, using almond flour, turned out to be my favorite banana bread recipe to date -- give it a try and let me know what you think! 


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 bananas, extra ripe
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup almond flour/meal (we used Hodgson Mill)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg


  1. Grease and lightly flour bread pan. 
  2. Cream together butter and sugar. 
  3. Add beaten eggs, banana, and vanilla extract and mix well. 
  4. In another bowl, add all dry ingredients and whisk together well. 
  5. Fold together wet and dry ingredients -- don’t over mix. 
  6. Pour into bread pan.

Bake at 350 for 55 minutes, or until knife comes out clean. 

Note: You may want to make a double batch because when this comes out of the oven -- you can bet it won't last long!
