Grain-Free Banana Bread Blondies:

I wanted to use up my ripe bananas a different way this week, so banana bread blondies happened. These are basically banana bread in bar form but has a more cake like consistency. So if you want a different way to use up your ripe bananas, give these a try.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Pasture raised eggs
  2. Vanilla extract
  3. Coconut oil ( Sub butter or ghee)
  4. Ripe bananas
  5. Maple syrup
  6. Almond butter (Sub any nut/seed butter you have)
  7. Flaxseed meal (this is optional, if you don’t have any omit)
  8. Almond flour
  9. Coconut flour
  10. Salt and flaky salt for topping
  11. Cinnamon
  12. Chopped chocolate of choice

Preparing the batter:

I added my wet ingredients (except the eggs) to my food processor and processed until a smooth consistency. And then I added my eggs and processed a few seconds until all incorporated. But you can also do this in a bowl with a hand held mixer, stand mixer, or in a blender. Next I added the dry ingredients and mix. Folded in the chopped chocolate, added to a lined 8×8 baking dish, and topped with more chocolate.

Baking time:

I baked mine in my convection oven on 350 F for about 20-25 minutes. But once a toothpick comes out clean your blondies are done. Sprinkle some flaky salt on top and let cool for 15 minutes before slicing into bars.

Storing:

I like to store mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days (if they last that long). But these also are freezer friendly. I like to store mine in an airtight container or Stasher Bag in the freezer.
