Prep Time 5 minutes

Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 1 loaf


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 whole banana - for topping
  • ¼ cup organic maple syrup - preferably Canadian, eh!
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract or 1 tsp dried vanilla beans
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup organic almond butter
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • tsp baking soda
  • tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mash 4 bananas with a fork. Then add maple syrup, vanilla extract, eggs and almond butter.

  3. Once combined, add coconut flour, almond flour, cinnamon, sea salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix thoroughly.

  4. Grease the inside of a 9 X 5 baking dish with coconut oil or ghee. Line with parchment paper and pour in the batter. Give the bottom of the loaf pan a few taps against the table to get rid of any air pockets.
  5. Slice a whole banana in half, lengthwise, and place it cut-side up on top of the batter.
  6. Bake the bread in the oven for approximately 1:15 hrs or until you can insert a cake tester into the thickest part and it comes out clean.

  7. Let the bread cool for at least 15-20 minutes before serving.
