Do you ever sit in your hindquarters in a reflective meditative moment and think to yourself, “Wow. Are there banana bread recipes in the world?
… kind of like when you're watching Netflix and Neil Tyson Degrasse bombards you with a perspective of how phenomenal, inconceivable, and excruciatingly big the universe is, and your brain basically goes off and you're going to eat ice cream, because that's how you deal with awkward subject matter?
Honestly, I try not to broach the topic of the banana bread recipe within my headspace, because the options easily overwhelm me (big restaurant menus cause great anxiety in this human, and let's not even talk about sample cards of paint … it's just a lot to bear). Ergo, I carry and bury the concept deep down, because this is how I deal with things that are beyond my control. It seems to work well …: this loaf of banana bread and almond butter.
Lately I've been doing a lot of fast work due to Mother Nature's neurotic behavior. We had an incredible winter that broke records (hazaaaaaah!
So here is a little taste of that … a little warmer for the belly, somewhat familiar but different enough to keep our interest awakened … food in the form of a thick slice of banana bread with almond butter to lift the spirit .

the Paleo banana bread The recipe I published a few years ago is still one of the most visited pages on my site, which I used as inspiration to make this version of almond butter. True to my baking philosophy, the dough is made with raw ingredients, blended in a blender and baked to a sweet, moist perfection. Psst! If you are looking for a version of coconut flour, check out my Coconut flour banana bread.You can use any nut butter you want for this bread (I've made the peanut butters and it's wuuuunderbaaaar!), Add chocolate chips and / or chopped nuts… heck, you can even add blueberries. This is your bread, your life … you are in control, my friends. I enjoyed thick slices of bread with a pinch of peanut butter or almond butter, plus a little Strawberry and chia seed jam.
#ProTip: Leave the dough just a little thick to get chunks of steaming whole banana goodness, as shown in the bun above. … or if the hot fruit is not your jam, mix it into pieces, my friends
In a universe of endless banana loaves …

Banana bread and almond butter (Paleo)
Preparation time: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 35 minutes.
Total time: 45 minutes
Servings: 1 loaf of bread
2 large ripe peeled bananas
2 large eggs
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup unsweetened almond butter see note *
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups super fine almond flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease or spray 9 "x 5" bread pan. Note: You can also align the bread pan with parchment paper.
Add all the ingredients to a blender and mix until completely smooth. Transfer the dough to the prepared bread tray and smooth into an even layer. Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, until the center is set. Turn off the oven heat and let the bread sit in the hot oven for 5 more minutes.
Remove the banana bread from the oven and let it cool for at least 1 hour before removing it from the pan. To do this, run a knife between the loaf and the bread pan and use a spatula to help separate the bottom of the bar from the pan. Turn the bread on a cutting board. Cut into thick slices and serve with a pinch of butter, almond butter and / or jam.
* I used an almond butter without stirring. If your almond butter is oily, be sure to stir it well before adding it. You can also use peanut butter or cashew nuts!
