Optional Add-On:

  • 1-2 tbsp walnuts chopped
  • 1 tbsp rolled oats


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 8×5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl using the back of a fork. Add eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, whisk until combined.
  • Stir in almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Fold in chopped walnuts and pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Optional: Sprinkle with additional chopped walnuts and oats.
  • Bake for 60 minutes in the preheated oven. → The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and let it cool completely before slicing.

Store leftovers in an airtight container or packed in aluminum wrap for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
Freeze: Once cool, transfer the bread (I suggest slicing it beforehand) into a freezer bag and freeze for a maximum of 3 months. Allow to thaw in the fridge overnight, or rebake frozen bread for a few minutes in the oven. Single slices can be thawed for 30 minutes at room temperature.
Coconut Oil Substitution: Use ¼ cup olive oil.
