  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 
  1. In a large mixing bowl with beaters mix mashed bananas, eggs, almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla until well blended. 
  2. Add the coconut flour with the spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
  3. Combine the dry ingredients with a spatula. Divide the batter evenly in 12 lined baking pans about 2/3 full. 
  4. Sprinkle with additional chopped walnuts if desired. 
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Store in a resealable bag in the refrigerator. 


  1. Are there no walnuts in the ingredients? The photos look like the nuts are pecan pieces ...
