Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line bottom and sides of standard-sized loaf pan with parchment paper.

In small saucepan or microwaveable bowl, stir together almond butter and raw honey. Warm mixture on stove or in microwave until runny and viscous.

Pour half of banana batter into prepared pan, then top with three-quarters of almond butter mixture. Follow with remaining banana batter and top with almond butter mixture. Use wooden skewer to marble and swirl the batter. Top with chopped almonds, then bake in oven for 1 hour. Cool in pan completely before serving.
