Paleo Banana Blondies

There are some days where I feel my creative writing juices pumping through my veins. I think of funny, witty stuff in my head all day and I have no one around but a 2 and 4 year old to laugh at it all. Even the best of my jokes are met with a pause and a, “Oh, mommy, you’re such a pia-toda!” A WHAT? I can’t even… Clearly that must mean brilliant, hilarious mother in child speak.

But tonight is really not one of them. I feel should give these Banana Blondies the honor of a long introduction because they are quite delicious and it took me 3 batches to figure it out. But quite honestly, I don’t waaaaaanna. At least not tonight. Tonight I want to sit here and watch me some Million Dollar Listing LA. It makes me realize that I missed my true calling of being a real estate agent in LA to the likes of Beyonce, Martha Stewart, Lisa Vanderpump and some wealthy-European-who-I-have-no-idea-what-he-does-for-a-living-and-looks-at-me-a-little-creepy-sometimes-but-it-doesn’t-matter-because-his-checks-always-cash type of real estate agent. Truth.

Thankfully I’m almost as good at cooking as selling imaginary real estate.

Here’s your blondies. And if you’re looking for another delicious (and quick) gluten/grain-free dessert, may I suggest my No’tmeal Raisin Cookies? You won’t be sorry!

  1. These treats are super delicious! I love the combination of banana, almond butter and walnuts! My husband had a second helping and boy did I want one too:-) They taste great with coffee!

  2. Hi. I tried these and loved them. Although I wasn’t sure how much butter they need. I didn’t see a measurement for this ingredient. Also, by any chance, do you have the nutritional information on these? Thanks so much and excited to try more of your recipes

    1. I don’t believe there is butter in this recipe! I just double checked and made sure on the recipe. But it IS getting late and I’m open to being brain dead at the moment. Are you meaning almond butter? And I don’t add nutritional facts to my recipes because I find people tend to look mostly at the calories and I want people to start thinking in terms of ingredients / nutrition. As well, most people who are tracking other nutrients / majors typically have their own systems to measure them out.

  3. Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for the recipe :). I made these earlier in the week and have been sharing them with coworkers, family, etc. and everyone loves them! This morning I mixed one in with some Siggi’s kefir with blueberries/strawberries – what a great idea!! It was delicious. Oh and when I baked them I added some flaked coconut on top for the last 15 mins. of cooking. Yum. Thanks again!

  4. Do you just keep these on the counter? They’re delicious, but don’t cut very well- sticks to the knife. Any suggestions?

    1. Hmm, mine aren’t quite that sticky. Maybe it varies depending on the almond butter? And yes, I leave them on the counter! 🙂

    1. Hmm, I’m not sure. Baking is so technical that any little change would throw it off. You can always try it and see how it goes!! Keep me posted!

  5. What brand of almond butter works best in these? The almond butters I’ve tried seem to all have a different texture- despite the fact that they are all just almonds and usually some type of oil.
