Chocolates Banana Bread Blondies Baking Healthy

These blondies are nutritious, full of delicious healthy fats and fiber, and most importantly, stuffed with creamy almond butter, bananas, and chocolate!

Serves 9

2 bananas, mashed

3/4 cup almond butter, plus extra

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup almond milk

1/3 cup coconut sugar

1-1/2 cups almond meal

3 tablespoons coconut flour

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot flour

Pinch of salt

1 cup carob chips or any other dairy-free chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix together the bananas, almond butter, vanilla, oil, and milk until creamy. Add the sugar, almond meal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt; mix well. Fold in carob chips.

Pour batter into pan and smooth top. Sprinkle more carob chips on top, if desired, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove blondies from pan and cut into squares. If desired, heat 1 tablespoon of almond butter until melted and drizzle over blondies.

Store, covered, at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Note: Some almond butters are oilier than others, so if necessary, reduce measure to 1/2 cup.

KID HELP

  • Let your kids mash up the bananas.
  • Let them help mix batter.
  • Before baking, let kids top sprinkle more carob chips over batter.
