Have you noticed you can’t buy a single banana anymore? Everywhere I go the bananas are sold in bags now. This means we have more bananas on hand than we can eat and so polka dotted bananas are constantly begging me to bake them into bread.

I feel so bad for my family. I tortured them by insisting they eat four banana breads back to back as I worked on getting the perfect layer of cinnamon in the exact right spot that I wanted it.

There was measuring of batter going on that meant dirtying every set of measuring cups in the house every single time I made it. I can’t imagine what it would be like to write a baking cookbook. Complete and utter chaos.

I did a little happy dance the last two times when the swirl dipped down into the middle of the bread just the way I wanted it. Each and every bite is filled with the mingling of cinnamon and banana inside a moist, fluffy, tender crumb.

I didn’t go overboard with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting because it doesn’t really need it. Subtle is better and you can skip it entirely if you like, the bread won’t suffer for it.

Can I use a different flour other than almond?

Yes, you can definitely use a different flour other than almond flour for cinnamon roll banana bread. Almond flour is a great option for those following a gluten-free or low-carb diet, but if you prefer to use a different flour, you have a few options. Here are a few alternatives:

  1. All-purpose flour: All-purpose flour is a common flour that is readily available in most grocery stores. If you are not gluten-sensitive or following a low-carb diet, you can use all-purpose flour as a substitute for almond flour in this recipe. Use the same amount of all-purpose flour as you would almond flour.
  2. Coconut flour: Coconut flour is a low-carb and gluten-free alternative to all-purpose flour. However, it can be more absorbent than other flours, so you will need to adjust the amount of liquid in the recipe. For this recipe, use 1/3 to 1/2 cup of coconut flour, and add an additional 2-3 eggs to help bind the ingredients together.
  3. Oat flour: Oat flour is a nutritious and gluten-free alternative to all-purpose flour. You can make your own oat flour by blending rolled oats in a food processor until they become a fine powder. For this recipe, use the same amount of oat flour as you would almond flour.
