Why is banana bread not called banana cake? Answers on a post card please! Whatever you want to call it – we know it tastes good! Read on for the recipe to make almond banana bread.

Thanks to Shrutu, from Melbourne, who sent in this almond banana bread recipe. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you make?

This is a very easy banana bread to make with kids – using almond meal flour, gluten free!

My kids loved this Almond meal banana bread! 
I fell in love with Almond flour after one of my friend made an almond cake and I couldn’t stop myself from eating it. So I decided to give a go, but in a different form.
Below is the recipe:

1 serving of cooking spray
3 medium (blank)s eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 medium (7″ to 7-7/8″ long)s bananas, mashed
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups almond flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt
I added little bit of chocolate powder to make it more interesting.

Method:   *Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Prepare a pan with cooking spray.
* Mix eggs and vinegar together in a bowl; add bananas, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract and stir until blended.
* Sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg and salt together in a large bowl; stir into banana mixture until well blended.
* Pour batter into prepared pan(i used a cake tin as my bread was too big)
* Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.  * Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire.

It is super simple for my kids to follow and make with me.
