Nutty Banana

A44D95A5-A78C-4783-8CBB-53CC0ED590A0I had lots of ripe bananas and I was craving something baked. The logic thing to do would be to bake a banana bread and that is exactly what I did! I didn’t plan it, so I created a recipe with things that I had. As soon as you collected all your ingredients it’s actually a very easy recipe. Anyone can make it! I already have a banana bread recipe on my blog (Bananananana), but having 2 is not going to hurt anyone. This one is made with nuts and a secret ingredient: almond flour! It honestly is the best banana bread that I’ve ever made. Banana bread and nuts are just such a good combination. I ate it with greek style yogurt from Oatly (hugely recommend this!!), some organic maple syrup and toasted coconut and it was sooo good! I hope you will enjoy it as well!
