Grain-Free Banana Blueberry Bars
Makes 16 bars
3 cups blanched almond flour** (recipe for almond flour below)
1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 Tablespoons olive oil or melted coconut oil
4-5 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups frozen blueberries
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch glass pan.
- Combine almond flour, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil and eggs. Beat wet and dry mixes along with the bananas very throughly to give the eggs good beating (it sounds harsh, I know, but the key to fluffy, grain-free baked goods is thoroughly beating the eggs).
- Place batter in prepared pan and sprinkle blueberries on top.
- Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the edges are brown and a toothpick stuck into the center of the dish comes out clean. Let bars cool for about 30 minutes, then serve.
** I made my own almond flour for this recipe by putting (soaked, then dehydrated) almonds through a food processor until right before the almonds turn to butter. It worked fine in my opinion, but the kids enjoy the finer, blanched almond flour.
