Banana Blondies

Here is a yummy and guilt free treat.  I make these for my 3 year old and I love that they are sweetened only with banana, dates and raw local honey.    I usually skip the chocolate chips, but obviously they are delicious with them! I use enjoylife dairy/gluten/soy free mini chips when I do include them.  Many of you have asked for egg free desserts and here you have one!  They are really chewy and naturally sweetened.  Use any nut butter, I just love cashew because it's smooth and the flavor is my favorite of the nut butters so I bake with it often. 


Ingredients:

1 ripe banana
10 pitted dates
1/3 cup cashew butter
1/4 cup almond flour or meal
1 tbsp coconut flour
3 tbsp raw honey
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt 
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips *optional

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, if using them.

2.  Put dates in the food processor first and pulse them a few times.

3.  Add everything else to the food processor.  Pulse until smooth.

4.  Pour mixture onto parchment paper.

5.  Add chocolate chips and mix them in, on the parchment paper. 

6.  Bake at 350F for 25 minutes or until cooked through and top is slightly golden.

7.  Let cool completely, about 15 minutes.  Lift parchment paper to easily remove the whole pan of blondies and cut them into bars.

Enjoy!

  2. Funny story, I made these a few nights ago and fell asleep and didn't hear my phone timer going off, 2.5 hours later the smell of burning food woke me up! So bummed. Buttttt, I made them again this morning and they were delish! I only had 4 dates left so I used those along with some dried black mission figs and I also used 1/6 cup cocoa+coconut barney butter and 1/6 cup almond butter. Thanks for the recipe! :)
