Almond Butter Banana Bread


I would consider myself a connoisseur when it comes to banana bread.  I love the stuff, so I try countless recipes and variations.  My tried and true favorite classic banana bread is this one, however this Almond Butter Banana Bread has become a fast favorite.  I came across this recipe while watching Live with Kelly and Ryan.  Ryan Seacrest’s girlfriend was on the show sharing her recipe for banana bread and I had to try it.

Now I am not going to lie…when I first saw the recipe I wasn’t sure how it would all come together because there is no flour and the base of the bread is almond butter.  However, it looked good so I gave it a try.  Oh my gosh…it is really, really delicious and very filling.  The almond butter base gives the bread great flavor and fills it with healthy fats making it very satisfying.  I love adding dark chocolate chips and a sprinkling of homemade granola.   The sweet creaminess of the chocolate, combined with the crunch of the granola makes for the perfect combination.

Whether you have a favorite banana bread recipe or not, please give this recipe a try.  A slice of this delicious bread makes an excellent breakfast or a healthy snack.  Slather a bit of all fruit spread and it will be even more delicious…if that is even possible…
