Paleo Chocolate Banana Bars


§ Ingredients

  • Four (4) medium, ripe, peeled bananas.

  • Two (2) large eggs.

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract.

  • 13 cup packed coconut flour.

  • 34 cup almond flour or almond meal.

  • 13 cup unsweetened cocoa powder.

  • 12 tsp baking soda.

  • 12 tsp baking powder.

  • 14 tsp salt.

  • 3 oz. dark chocolate bar (70% or greater cacao) chopped coarsely.

§ Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 X 8 inch baking pan (I use coconut oil) and set aside.
In one bowl, mash bananas, add eggs and vanilla and beat by hand until mixed well.
In a larger bowl whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, soda, baking powder and salt. Gently fold in wet mixture with dry mixture and stir until well combined. Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate pieces. Spread batter into greased pan and sprinkle the remaining chocolate pieces on top. Bake 18 – 23 minutes in pre-heated oven or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Transfer to wire rack to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting.

§ Notes from Joan

Healthier overall than traditional brownie like dessert; lower carb content, lower sugar, decent fiber source, healthy fat source, gluten-free and dairy-free.
