Ingredients

  • 3 medium overripe bananas (the ones with lots of brown spots are best)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup packed blanched fine almond flour
  • 1/3 cup packed coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup high-quality cocoa powder (see recipe notes below)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, dairy free if desired
  • For topping:
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips (dairy free, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Spray an 8x8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Add bananas, eggs and vanilla to a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

  4. Gently fold in wet mixture and stir until well combined. Next stir in chocolate chunks, reserving a few tablespoons.

  5. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chunks on top. Bake for 18-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Once done baking, transfer pan to a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes before cutting into 12 bars.

Recipe Notes

To make the chocolate drizzle: Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to a small saucepan and place over low heat. Stir frequently until melted then drizzle over bars.
To make vegan: Instead eggs, replace with flax eggs. Also make sure to use a vegan chocolate bar.

I often use Trader Joe's Cocoa powder, but Ghriradelli's Unsweetened Cocoa powder is another favorite. Another favorite is Dagoba's organic cacao powder. If you use cacao powder, only use 1/3 cup.
