Chocolate Banana Squares

Okay, only got one post out yesterday rather than the promised two...  So let's see if we can get caught up today, with a pair of banana-themed recipes.  (Because nothing says "paleo" like bananas, right?)

First up, these chocolate banana squares!

Ingredients for Squares

  • 2 large REALLY ripe bananas - more brown than yellow, ideally
  • 0.5 cup crunchy-type almond butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 0.25 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips (Krisda brand is sweetened with stevia)
Ingredients for Topping
  • 1 ounce dark chocolate (as always, the darker the better! 😊)
  • 0.5 Tbsp palm shortening (or butter)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a 9x13 pan with coconut oil (probably not the healthiest option, but I use the spray stuff)
  3. Peel the bananas, and mush 'em up real good.
  4. Combine the banana mush with the rest of the square ingredients, except the chocolate chips.  Mix well until it's a consistent batter.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips, mix thoroughly.
  6. Dump the whole thing into your greased-up pan, and spread evenly in the pan
  7. Bake for about 18 minutes.
  8. Let cool, and cut into squares.
  9. Put the squares side-by-side on a piece of parchment for this next bit.
  10. Melt the topping ingredients together in the top of a double boiler, and mix well until thoroughly combined.
  11. Drizzle the melted topping over the squares.
  12. Let stand until the topping has hardened.
