  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 large ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups gluten free flour (I prefer Cup4Cup)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • extra almonds for topping


  • Stir butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, bananas, almond extract, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Whisk until well combined.
  • Add gluten free flour, almonds and chocolate chips and stir together with a wooden spoon until combined.
  • Grease and flour (with gluten free flour) 4 miniature bread loaf pans.
  • Spoon bread mixture into loaf pans and smooth tops.
  • Sprinkle extra almonds on top and press into the surface of the bread dough.
  • Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center of loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool completely in pan.
  • To remove from pan, do not invert or almonds will fall off tops.
  • Using a small spatula gently lift bread out of bread pan and place on cutting board to cut.
  • Each loaf makes approximately 5-6 pieces.


NOTE: I recommend using Cup4Cup gluten free flour as one of the best GF blended flours I've come across.
NOTE: Coconut flour is not recommended for this recipe.
NOTE: When using gluten free flour a little more is better than using less! It’s a much finer texture so more flour is needed to get bread or muffins to raise correctly.
NOTE: I found that regular baking powder and soda worked better than xanthan gum in the recipe as a leavening agent.
NOTE: For a moister bread, add an additional 1/4 cup of butter or oil to the recipe.
