5 from 1 reviews

This almond banana bread recipe takes traditional banana bread to the next level by adding almond extract and toasted almonds.



  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork, removing as many lumps as possible; set aside.
  3. Melt coconut oil in the microwave or over stovetop and set aside, allowing a few minutes for it to cool down.
  4. Whisk milk and eggs into the bowl with the bananas; once the oil has cooled a bit, add the oil, along with the almond extract.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda together.
  6. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Last, gently fold in the almonds by hand.
  7. Line a bread pan with coconut oil and then pour batter into pan, dropping the pan down on the counter a few times to evenly spread out the batter.
  8. Place pan in the oven and bake bread for 55-60 minutes. Use a toothpick to check doneness of the bread.
  9. Remove bread from the oven and leave it in the pan for 10 minutes or so before carefully removing it and placing it on a cooling rack. Keep the oven on!
  10. While bread is cooling, prepare the glaze: Place sliced almonds on a baking sheet and toast them for 7-10 minutes, or until they’re slightly golden brown. Meanwhile, stir powdered sugar, milk and extract together with an electric mixer; stir in the toasted almonds by hand.
  11. Once the bread has cooled, pour the glaze overtop.
  12. Slice and enjoy!
