How To Make Almond Flour Banana Bread
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray the inside of an 8-inch loaf pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl add the eggs, banana, butter, and vanilla. Mix until smooth.
In a separate medium bowl add the almond flour, coconut flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
Stir in the chopped nuts.
Transfer the batter to the loaf pan and if desired, top with additional nuts.

Tips For Working With Almond Flour
When baking with almond flour, you want to avoid scooping the flour with your measuring cup directly. Instead, to measure the almond flour, spoon the almond flour into the measuring cup and then level with the back of a knife.
If you scoop the measuring cup into the almond flour, it packs it down and you’ll end up with too much almond flour in your batter.
If you store your almond flour in the fridge or freezer, be sure to let it come to room temperature before measuring and mixing into your batter.
Tips For Making Almond Flour Banana Bread
When using bananas in this recipe, the riper, the better. It should be easy to mash and browned (or spotted) on the outside. If your banana is not quite there yet, you can still use it, just spend some extra time making sure the mash is fairly consistent and smooth. Green bananas will not work in this almond flour banana bread recipe.
If the batter becomes too thick, add 2 tablespoons of water and stir until combined.
Feel free to add ½ cup - 1 cup of chocolate chips, for extra sweetness.
If you prefer a different kind of nut, pecans would be a great replacement for walnuts in this recipe.
