Banana Almond Bread with Amaretto Glaze

Banana Almond Bread with Amaretto Glaze


For the muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 large, ripened bananas
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

For the Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons Amaretto
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and the slivered almonds.
  • In a separate bowl, mash together the bananas, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and almond flavoring. Combine the two bowls together and fold until combined.
  • Pour into regular-sized muffin tins until about 2/3 of the way full. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 22-25 minutes, or until golden brown and completely baked.
  • To make the glaze, whisk together the Amaretto and powdered sugar until smooth and shiny. Drizzle over the cooled muffins, and sprinkle with slivered almonds, if desired.
