I’ve been revisiting some of my old posts recently to see if I can make any minor improvements. This is a rather fun job for me as it involves a lot of taste testing! Plus, it’s a bit of a trip down memory lane (Hello, May 2012!). Good lord, how embarrassing some of my posts are…
While scrolling along, I came across my Carrot Bar recipe, which immediately made me start thinking of possible variations. The result? Banana bars!
1 cup mashed banana (about 3 bananas)
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp flaxseed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup coconut flour
Optional: 1/4 cup coconut flakes
Optional: 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Optional: 1/4 cup chopped almonds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13×9 baking dish.
Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips and almonds) in a food processor and blend until a thick batter is formed. Stir in chocolate chips and almonds, if using. Spread batter in the baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting and eating.
