  • 3 medium very ripe bananas

  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of raisins

  3. Combine all wet ingredients in one bowl.
  4. Combine all dry ingredients in another bowl.
  5. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  6. Stir until combined and folder in raisins. Don’t mix too much.

  8. Pour batter in and cover with the almond oat topping.
  9. Bake until top is golden brown or toothpick comes out clean.

I enjoyed this fresh out of the oven and warm but make sure to store tightly wrapped to maintain moisture. Also, you might have extra topping so just store it for something else – too good to waste.

*You can make these muffins, loaves, anything! But you’ll have to adjust the cooking time.
