banana bread

12May10

i had some over ripe bananas & thought that they would work well in place of the pumpkin in the pumpkin almond butter bread. this bread is delicious & simple! again, there’s plenty of room to experiment with this & add in spices, nuts, etc.

ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 3/4 cup mashed banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup honey (feel free to use less depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • (optional: dark chocolate chip chunks)

Directions:

  • Turn oven on to 350 degrees
  • Mix all ingredients well in a bowl
  • Pour batter into an 8×8 greased pan
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes & a toothpick comes out clean

another variation: topped with coconut flakes & sliced almonds


(this variation: pour batter into pan & bake for about 15 minutes, drizzle some agave over the top, add some coconut flakes & sliced almonds & bake for another 10 minutes)

    what do you use in place of flour? or don’t you need any?
    we want to be sure before we try it
    Thanks/G

    hi gayle! there’s no flour at all in this.. the almond butter works really well for the base of the batter. let me know if there’s anything else! :)
