Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Total Time: 50 to 55 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 3 bananas, very ripe
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Oil an 8x8-inch pan with coconut oil and line with one strip of parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash together the bananas, almond butter, coconut oil, almond milk, sugar and salt until almost smooth and just a few lumps remain. 
  3. Add the almond flour, oats and baking powder. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet until combined. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. 
  4. To the remaining batter, add the cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Pour the chocolate mixture on top of the plain batter and spread gently. 
  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until just set. Allow to cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.

It says the total time is 1 1/2 hours yet it's more like 2 1/4 hours. 20min prep time, 1hr 10min bake time and 45min in the freezer.
It's annoying when a recipes the "total time" is longer than stated.
