Blondies

I’m the type of person who doesn’t like to toss food. If I can find a way to extend the shelf life of something, I will. So when my banana’s were just on the verge of turning, I peeled them, wrapped them in saran wrap and tossed them in the fridge. I knew they would be able to serve their purpose soon enough. And oh boy did they.

These blondies are a cross between a brownie and a cake. The texture is light, moist and pretty fluffy, especially for being grain free. I have yet to make them with fresh bananas so I don’t know how that would affect the texture. As for the flavor, I don’t think you can go wrong either way.

The Good Stuff:

  • 2 bananas (mine were previously frozen)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

The How To:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mash bananas.
  • Add all ingredients and mix until well blended.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and pour batter in.
  • Cook for 35 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and pull out of loaf pan to let cool. Cut and serve.

    Thanks for the recipe… I just made it. It is very tasty but I might add a tad bit more sweetener next time.

      Ya, the sweetness factor can definitely be adjusted. Since my husband and I cut out most sweet foods, everything now just seems to taste too sweet for us.
