  • 3 ripe bananas 2 mashed, 1 sliced in half length wise
  • 3/4 cup (3oz/85g) almond flour
  • 1/4 cup (¾ oz/21g) coconut flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (2 ½ oz/71g) sugar free maple syrup, maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup (1 ½oz/43g) walnuts, roughly chopped
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350°F (180°C), then line a 9x5 inch loaf tin with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. 

  3. In a separate bowl combine the mashed banana, eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.

  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry until a batter is formed. Lastly, fold in the chopped walnuts — reserving some to sprinkle over the top of the bread. 

  5. Transfer the batter to your lined baking tin. Lay the two halves of the whole sliced banana on the top and sprinkle over the reserved walnuts.

  6. Bake the banana bread for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

  7. When the bread is done remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before removing from the tin. Slice and serve warm or room temperature.

  8. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Recipe Notes
  • This bread can be frozen for up to 1 month. Defrost at room temperature then toast or warm in the oven to enjoy leftovers. 
  • This bread can be made vegan by substituting the eggs with flax eggs
  • To make flax eggs, combine 3 tablespoons ground flax seed + 9 tablespoon water. Allow to set for 10 minutes until "bloomed," then add into your batter in place of eggs.
