Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat 2 mini loaf pans with nonstick spray.

  • Whisk together bananas, sugar, Almond Breeze, oil, extract, and egg in a large bowl. Stir together dry ingredients and add to banana mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are incorporated.

  • Spoon equal amounts into prepared pans and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool before removing from pans. Makes 8 servings.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe may be baked in a 7 1/2 X 3 1/2-inch loaf pan for 55 minutes to make 1 small but full-size loaf, or double the recipe and bake in an 8 X 4-inch loaf pan for 1 hour and 10 minutes for a large loaf.

For a fun ice cream sandwich, spoon slightly softened ice cream between slices of banana bread and freeze until firm.

The almond milk caught me off guard as that's new to me; gotta give this one a try. Banana Bread was a twice a month 'must do' for my kids... and every other kid in 'The Hood.' Read More

Really good! It came out lighter in texture and also lighter in color than a standard banana bread which I liked. For the bananas 2 med-sized ones worked for me. I did not use the almonds but did add a very small amount of chopped walnuts. I also added just over 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels which really went well here. Extracts can be strong and I found the almond extract flavor to be very noticeable but I liked that also since you don't usually get that with banana breads. Like another reviewer mine (used 3 mini loaf pans) was also ready at 30 min. Great recipe! Read More

So I made it a second time, this time with hazelnut flour as I have a lot I need to use up and couldn't find any recipes that actually called for it. 1) I used a cup of hazelnut flour and 1/4 of regular flour and 2) I continued to reduce sugar to only 1/4 cup and oil to only 1 tsp of olive oil. Stuck to regular milk and skipped the almonds, since I was already using so many hazelnuts. Almond version is better, but this is still delicious! Read More
