So heavenly, it’s now a regular staple on our breakfast table and quite simply the best banana bread ever. Made with simple real food ingredients, like almond flour. Gluten-free and optional dairy-free alternatives.
Line a bread pan with parchment paper, or grease with butter or coconut oil.
In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: almond flour, arrowroot starch, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas. Then whisk in the eggs, maple syrup, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir until combined.
Pour the batter into a bread pan. Bake the bread, in the center of the oven, for 60 minutes, or until the center is firm. You can insert a knife in the center of the bread to check for doneness. The knife should come out clean when the bread is done.
Allow the bread to cool for at least 20-30 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan by lifting the parchment paper out of the pan.
Slice and enjoy. Store any leftover bread in a bag. Or, cut the bread and store the slices in a large air-tight container (my favorite prep containers can be found, here). Store the bread in the fridge for up to 5 days. This bread makes for a great make-ahead breakfast option.
2019 Update: The original recipe, published back in 2013, did not include arrowroot starch. It also called for 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts (added to the batter). I've found this recipe works best with the small amount of arrowroot now called for in the recipe. If you loved the original version and don't want to include arrowroot starch, I completely understand. By all means, you're welcome to leave it out. That said, I highly recommend using the arrowroot starch. It makes a tremendous difference in the final texture of the bread. Also, if you loved the walnuts, you're welcome to still add them. Keep in mind, you won't see the addition of arrowroot in the video, as the video was made a couple of years ago.
Carb Information: I purposely do not share nutritional information here on the blog, because I believe in eating real food versus counting calories and numbers. But I have received many requests from folks following keto (by the way, I recently hosted Dr. Axe on the podcast and we talked all about keto) and wanting the carb information for this recipe. The number provided is for an entire loaf, not a slice...Carbs: 285g. If you choose to use honey, the carbs will increase.
