banana bread, healthy

Almond Butter And Chocolate Banana Bread

Hi friends!! Happy Saturday to you! I hope it has been great. We have been doing house work most of the day, but I managed to sneak in a stair workout  (in the 80 degree heat), a short nap, and a few episodes of Fixer Upper. 

Today for lunch, I made a salad with some leftovers and it turned out really tasty! I enjoyed it with a slice of toasted 15 grain bread with butter and garlic salt.

In the salad: mixed greens, leftover grilled chicken, carrots, leftover pasta salad, shredded cheese, and Greek yogurt ranch dressing (Boathouse Farms). YUM!!

A little later, I noticed that I had some bananas that were browning and needed to be used up! I love banana bread, so I tweaked a recipe found online. I was very pleased with the taste of these!! They will get eaten quickly around here. 

 INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup of oats
  • 2 TBSP of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of baking powder 
  • 2 tsp of cocoa powder 
  • 1 egg 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup of almond butter 
  • 2 heaping TBSP of white whole wheat flour
  • Handful of dark chocolate chips 

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a medium sized bowl
  • Pour batter into round, greased pan (or pan of choice, 8×8)
  • Bake for 20 minutes 
  • Remove and let cool 
  • Slice into triangles 
  • Enjoy!! 

These would be awesome with drizzled almond butter on top, or some nuts added in it! I hope you guys enjoy!! Have a great rest of your weekend! 

With love, 

Carly

  1. This is an incredible recipe! I always make something similar for quick snacks/breakfasts/desserts, and add a scoop of peanut butter on top. Thank you for sharing your rendition – loving your photos, recipes, and your cute blog name!
