Happy St. Patty's Day!
I have been trying out some new recipes for snacks. I need snacks, like I need to eat every 2-3 hours or else I get cranky. Therefore, I have been trying to have snacks that contain both good carbs, healthy fats, and protein. So after looking around at some recipes I decided to try out PaleOMG: Nikki’s Macadamia Nut Banana Bread Squares.
Typical me though I did not have the same ingredients, so I subbed a few things...
Banana Coconut Bread
1/2 c. almonds
1/2 c. coconut butter
1 banana (peeled & sliced)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (just do it, it's not weird)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
pinch o' salt
Directions: Preheat oven at 375 degrees. In a food processor pulse the almonds until they become a flour. Add coconut butter, banana, vanilla and combine. It may seem a bit thick at this point but do not fret, the eggs still need to be added.
Add the dry ingredients and pulse until blended. Now add the eggs and process until all is combined. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and bake for about 15-18 minutes. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.
They are so easy to make and like I mentioned are a great snack to have when you need it! Slightly sweet and perfectly wonderful :) YUM
