Ingredients needed

These healthy blondies call for just four simple ingredients. If you’ve made any of our other no bake desserts before, you’ll already have everything on hand.

  • Coconut flour: A low carb and gluten free flour that absorbs moisture like no other flour. A little goes a very long way, and you don’t need to worry about any coconut flavor.
  • Bananas: add natural sweetness and moisture to the blondies.
  • Almond butter: provides healthy fats and a creamy texture to the mixture.

Ingredient swap

If you don’t want to use almond butter, try peanut, cashew, or sunflower seed butter.

  • Maple syrup: adds a touch of sweetness without the need for added sugars. It also helps bind everything together.

How to make banana blondies

You’ll need to start by lining an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper. This will make it easier to remove the blondies later on.

Grab a large mixing bowl and add in the coconut flour, mashed bananas, almond butter, and maple syrup. Mix it all up until it’s fully combined,, and there are no clumps.

Transfer the mixture to the lined pan and press it down evenly with your hands or the back of a spoon. Pop the pan into the fridge and let it chill for at least 30 minutes or until it’s nice and firm.

Once the blondies are firm, take them out of the fridge and cut them into bars or squares.

Tips to make the best recipe

  • Use ripe bananas for maximum sweetness and flavor.
  • Make sure to line the pan with parchment paper to easily remove the blondies.
  • Add some chocolate chips or cocoa powder to the mixture for a more chocolatey twist.
  • If the mixture is too dry, add a tablespoon of milk or water at a time until the desired consistency is reached.

Storage instructions

Leftovers: Store the blondies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

To freeze: For longer storage, freeze the blondies in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use regular flour instead of coconut flour?

Yes, you can use regular flour instead of coconut flour. However, you will need to heat treat the flour first and double the amount.

Can I use peanut butter instead of almond butter?

Yes, you can use any nut or seed butter of your choice.

How ripe do the bananas need to be?

While any bananas work, they are best if they are very ripe and almost black in color. This will give them a sweeter flavor and make them easier to mash.

  1. OMG you were right! I love it! They look so unbelievably appealing. That texture….. MUST MAKE ASAP! I brought like 5 kg in chocolate chips, toffee chips, pb chips… back home. I fear they won’t last me two month.

    When I have no time and have to make something quick I make cookies. You know which ones. And would you want to guess which famous Subway sandwich is NOT on the German menu?

  2. Yes please! I need to figure out how to not bake things, because all of your creations look AMAZING. I just discovered the deliciousness that is cashew butter. And now I want it in ALL THE THINGS. Like these babies. Pinned!

  3. Your 5 minute recipes hook me every time. I’m overwhelmed by lack of time and like you saw yesterday, my kids expect paleo treats on the regular 🙂 Also if you can do more subway copycats that would be awesome!

  4. Dear Arman, being a foodie blogger has its perks, doesn’t it? …I know the feeling. Everyone assumes I want to to always be cooking, but sometimes it’s nice to be treated and not have to lift a finger. Some don’t always appreciate it…could be worse though. These banana bread blondies looks wonderful. Again that rich, dense texture is irresistible to me. Pinning for later. Take care my friend and have a wonderful weekend, Catherine

  5. Yum! I love when I have all of the ingredients for a recipe I want to make 🙂 I liked the gardein crumbles when I tried them/reviewed them last year. I don’t eat the faux meat often but I should really buy it again.

  6. ARMAN!!!!! These speak to me Love banana bread with chocolate chips. Know I will love these even more. ‘Cuz guess what? The oven’s still broken, new one doesn’t arrive ’til next week…these will be the perfect quick weekend snack for the collective sweet tooth (teeth?) at our house….

  7. Haha the conversations with my friends are very different….
    Friends- “You want me to bring wine, right?”
    Me- “Duh.”
    Friends- “What are we having for dinner?”
    Me- “I dunno, Riley will figure out it.”

    You’re slowly convincing me that I’m completely missing out on life by not having coconut flour in my pantry. And that these sound amazing. I love desserts with banana in them!

  8. If I showed up to your house for dinner and you just picked up take-out, then I would throw it back in your face. And then I would make you go into the kitchen and make me a sub. And then some of these banana bread blondies as punishment for thinking you could just get take-out in the first place. Haha! Well done, mate!

  9. How are these blondies NO BAKE?! What are you–a baking wizard?!
    Just joking, yes you are 😉 anyways, I always whip up a smoothie or coconut flour pancakes if I’m ever in a rush! Super delicious–and you can have pancakes for dinner, right?
    I’m actually really weak when it comes to meat substitutes–tofu, mock meats, you name it. I know, they’re not good for you, but I love them so much!

  10. Ooh, I love banana bread, and I just made your banana bread bites yesterday! These are next. 😉

  11. I went to World Market yesterday and thought of you when I saw Bounty bars, which I had never actually seen before your blog. No relation to this post whatsoever. That is all.

  12. This looks delish! I wish I could just whip something up like that. Usually my fridge is barren because I shop every day.
