Banana Bread with Almond Butter Swirl (NO added sweetener)

This was a recipe Loralei and I came up with on the fly today. We had some bananas getting brown in the bin and decided to make a special treat for the week with them. It turned out SUPER moist and plenty sweet for our taste. Both kids gobbled up a slice for snack after their naps today and wanted more. I hope you enjoy as much as they did!

*We made ours in a heart shaped pan, but you can use whatever you have, you will just need to adjust the time a bit depending how different the size. My pan is about equivalent to a 9X9.

Banana Bread with Almond Butter Swirl
3 Speckled Bananas
4 Eggs
1/2 C Almond Milk (or coconut)
1/2 C Almond Flour
1/2 C Coconut Flour
1/8 C Arrowroot Powder
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbsp Melted Butter (or you could use coconut oil)

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/4 C Almond Butter

Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, mash bananas and mix with eggs and milk.
In a separate bowl, combine remaining bread ingredients except melted butter.
 Stir dry ingredients into the wet until everything is incorporated.
Add in melted butter and stir well.
Pour into a coconut oil greased baking dish.

In a small bowl, melt the coconut oil and almond butter for the swirl.

Pour over the bread in the pan and use a butter knife to swirl it throughout.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until it is cooked through.
Allow it to cool and enjoy!
