  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1⁄2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Heavily grease an 8 1⁄2-by-4 1⁄2-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, arrowroot starch, salt, and baking soda. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add butter, vinegar, eggs, and bananas. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until you have a thick batter. Fold chopped walnuts into the batter.
  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Smooth the top of the loaf with a spatula.
