Almond Banana Bread
This dairy-free Almond Banana Bread can more than satisfy a banana bread craving. Nutty and full of banana flavor, it’s hard stop at just 1 slice. Perfect for breakfast, a tasty snack or dessert.
My regular banana bread recipe is taken to a lighter and moister level with the new addition of almond milk. This banana bread recipe has been my go-to for some years now and is the perfect use of those over-ripe bananas that always seem to ripen at the wrong time.
I am baffled at how bananas can go from green and inedible to over-ripe in what seems like just hours. Yet, if I need them to ripen quickly, they’re stubborn and wont ripen. I digress.
This is not a gluten free banana bread: The title may suggest that this recipe is gluten-free, it is not. The recipe uses all-purpose flour, but does use almond milk.
Almond milk banana bread
Almond milk is a great dairy-free alternative and adds great moisture to the bread. This recipe never fails me and turns out perfectly every time.
How long does banana bread keep?
To maximize the shelf-life of the banana bread, wrap well in plastic wrap or foil and place in a plastic container with a lid. It should stay moist at room temperature (68-77°F/20-25°C) for 2-3 days.
Best loaf/baking pan for banana bread
The glass loaf pan I use (the one in the pictures) is a 1.5 qt that measures 8.3 inches x 4.6 inches. If you use a dark metal baking pan, you should reduce the oven temperature by 25°F/18°C as it will bake faster on the outside than the inside. If using a glass or light metal baking pan, keep the temperature. The baking time will not only depend on the pan, but how your oven is calibrated.
