Cinnamon Crunch Banana Bread

Lexi Finke
This cinnamon crunch banana bread is a fun take on classic banana bread. It's healthy, good for you, and nothing short of delicious. The bread itself it moist and lightly sweet, topped with a crunchy cinnamon streusel topping. As a bonus, it's paleo friendly, low-sugar, and gluten-free!

  • 8.5 x 4.5 bread pan


  • 4 small, ripe bananas 3 large or overripe
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond or peanut butter liquid or melted
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour ~about 200 grams
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour ~about 16 grams
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the topping:

  • 1/3 cup oat flour or almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons room temperature coconut oil or ghee
  • teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to for 350 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, start by making the streusel topping. Combine all of the ingredients (oat flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and cinnamon). Refrigerate while you make the bread.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until they are more liquid than solid. Add in the 3 eggs and whisk. Next, mix in the melted almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until combined.
  • In another small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Gently mix with a spoon until well combined, but do not over mix.
  • Add the batter to the greased bread pan (tip: add a piece of parchment paper to easily remove from the pan). Remove the topping from the fridge and crumble on top.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes or until fully baked through and a toothpick comes out clean. If the top gets too browned while baking, lay a piece of foil on top for the duration of baking.
  • Let cool, slice into pieces, and enjoy!
