You can purchase almond flour or make your own at home by processing raw almonds in a food processor/blender until a flour/meal consistency.

You may like to add one tablespoon coconut palm sugar or pure cane sugar as well. Depending on how ripe your banana is, the added sweetness will compensate if your banana is not fully ripened. Also a dash or two of cinnamon works nicely.
