  • ½ cup ripe banana (2 small bananas)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons xantham gum
  • cup granulated stevia
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans (crushed)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a 7.5-inch loaf tin with baking paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the soft bananas, eggs, and melted coconut oil. Beat together with an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth and frothy.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the almond flour, xantham gum, granulated stevia, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until the batter is smooth and completely combined. Fold in the crushed walnuts or pecans.
  • Pour the banana bread batter into your prepared baking tin and smooth out the top. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove and allow to cool for 15 - 20 minutes in the tin. When the loaf feels cool enough to be removed, remove from the tin and allow it to completely cool before slicing.


You can store your banana bread in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
