- 1/3 Cup grass-fed butter, melted
- 3 organic bananas, mashed
- 3 Tbs. local honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp. almond extract
- ¾ Cup crushed walnuts
- ½ Cup dark chocolate chunks or raisins (optional)
- 2 tsp. chia seeds
- 1 free-range egg
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. powder nutmeg (optional)
- ¼ tsp. powder clove (optional)
- ¼ tsp. powder cardamom (optional)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 Cup oats
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mash bananas with a fork in a mixing bowl.
- Add the melted butter, honey, vanilla and almond extract, mix well.
- Beat the egg into the mixture.
- Next, add the crushed walnuts, optional dark chocolate chunks or raisins, and chia seeds.
- Then, add the spices, baking powder and oats, mix well.
- Grease a cookie sheet with butter and spoon the mixture on. The batter is a little runny, but don’t worry, they will come out like banana bread soft bites. You can put the batter in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden, and then bake. Or you can spoon the batter onto a baking sheet right away.
- Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.
When done, let cool completely before eating for best flavor.
Great for toddlers (don’t give to babies under 1), on the go snacks, even for breakfast! They make a great alternative to pancakes and they are great for sugar cravings too! You could even make this recipe into muffins by greasing a muffin tin with butter and bake as you would muffins.
