Why You'll Love This Recipe

I was looking to make a banana bread recipe that I could eat with a big old slab of butter on top, and that’s what inspired me to make this Almond Butter Banana Bread. I use creamy organic almond butter as well as all the traditional ingredients you’d find in banana bread. This recipe for Almond Butter Banana Bread is so simple to make, and it’s the perfect snack!

You can easily freeze banana bread by wrapping it in plastic wrap and then again in foil. This makes this Almond Butter Banana Bread an easy dessert or snack to have on hand all the time!

Ingredients for Almond Butter Banana Bread

Organic Salted Butter I always use organic salted butter, as that’s just what my mom always had at home when I started baking! I also like to buy only one kind of butter for eating and baking. You can use unsalted butter for this recipe if that’s all you have, just add an additional 1/4 teaspoon salt to the recipe. My favorite is Organic Valley Salted Butter.

Organic Light Brown Sugar When I’m making quick and easy recipes, one of my tricks is to use just one kind of sugar. I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but it cuts down on time and ingredients. In my traditional banana bread I’d normally use cane sugar and dark brown sugar. So, I’ll let you in on a little secret – equal parts of cane sugar and dark brown sugar is really just the same as using all light brown sugar! So that’s what I’m using here. I use my Homemade Light Brown Sugar.

Organic Almond Butter I use organic creamy almond butter in this recipe. You can also sub this for peanut butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter too!

Organic Ripe Bananas You should always use overly ripe bananas for banana bread. As banana ripen their starches turn to sugar, which gives them more flavor and makes them sweet! That’s why overly ripe (or black) bananas are the best for baking.

Organic Heavy Whipping Cream I use organic heavy whipping cream in this banana bread recipe. If you don’t have heavy cream you can use whole milk in its place, or you could even use Keifer. My favorite heavy whipping cream is Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream.

Organic Eggs I use organic large eggs in this recipe. Make sure you’re using large and not medium or extra large, as different size eggs can have an effect on the recipe!

Organic All Purpose Flour I use standard all purpose flour in this recipe. This is your most standard flour that you probably have in your pantry already! My favorite is Cairnspring Mills as it's fresh milled flour.

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.

Almond Butter Banana Bread

Recipe by MimiDifficulty: Easy



Similar to classic banana bread, this has the addition of almond butter for a sweet almond flavor that enhances this banana bread.


  • 1/2 cup organic salted butter, softened

  • 170 grams (3/4 cup) packed organic light brown sugar

  • 2 large organic ripe bananas

  • 3/4 cup organic heavy whipping cream, room temperature

  • 2 organic large eggs, room temperature

  • 64 grams organic almond butter

  • 191 grams (1 1/2 cups) organic all purpose flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 1-pound loaf pan with parchment paper, letting it fold over the sides for easier removal.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter and light brown sugar and mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter.
  • Add the bananas, heavy whipping cream, eggs, and almond butter, and mix on low until combined.
  • Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking powder, and sea salt into the mixing bowl in that order. Mix on low until combined.
  • Grease the bottom and sides of a 1-pound loaf pan. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Once the loaf has cooled, remove it from the pan.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.


  • Gluten Free – Replace the flour with 191 grams (scan 1 1/4 cups) Namaste Organic Perfect Flour Blend.
