Ingredients

  • 2 bananas ripe
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup raw cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sliced almonds

For the glaze:

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Use a fork to mash the bananas into the bottom of a bowl, removing as many lumps as possible.
  • Add the eggs, oil, milk, and almond extract to the bowl with the bananas and whisk to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, stir both flours, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda together, then stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Last, stir the almonds in by hand.
  • Grease a 9x5 bread pan, then pour the batter into the pan and bake bread for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Leave bread in bread pan for 10 minutes, then run a knife along the edges and carefully invert it onto a cooling rack.
  • 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.
  • Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the glaze overtop, then sprinkle with the toasted almonds. Slice and enjoy!
