Cinnamon Raisin Banana Bread

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 6 slices 1x


Soft naturally sweet banana bread spiced up with cinnamon and speckled with raisins for a healthy and simple breakfast, snack, or dessert!


  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup almond butter ((or any nut/seed butter))
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar ((or lemon juice))
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup almond flour (*)
  • 1/4 cup flax meal (**)
  • 1/3 cup raisins


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a blender or food processor or mixing bowl, blend/mash the bananas. 
  3. Add the almond butter, non-dairy milk, baking powder, vinegar, and cinnamon. Mix until fully combined.
  4. Add the flour and flax meal. Mix until just combined, but be careful not to over-mix.
  5. Stir in the raisins.
  6. Spread evenly into a loaf pan (I actually used this 8×5.5″ glass container, but a standard loaf pan works too) lined with parchment paper or lightly oiled.
  7. Top with additional raisins and cinnamon.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350F, or until golden brown and firm if lightly pressed in the center.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and eating.
  10. Keep in an airtight container for up to a week, preferably in the fridge for optimal freshness.


*You can make this recipe with oat flour, although I recommend the almond flour for best texture. You will not need the flax meal, just 2 cups oat flour. And be sure to not over-blend!

**You can use tapioca or cornstarch instead.
