Bananas, chocolate, sunflower seed butter…..ummm, need I say more?
Everyone knows that bananas go well with peanut butter but in my house we use Sunbutter (made with sunflower seeds instead of peanuts) because both of my kids have peanut allergies.
Now add in some non dairy chocolate (we have dairy allergies too!)
and you have an amazing combination!
Chocolate Banana Sunbutter Bars
3 cups dried banana chips, ground into a flour
1/2 cup oats ground into a flour
1/2 tbsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 cup Sunbutter or almond butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup sunflower seeds, ground into a flour
1 cup non dairy chocolate chips, melted
Place ground up banana chips, ground up sunflower seeds and ground up oats in food processor and process until mixed. Add in sea salt, vanilla, Sunbutter, and maple syrup and blend until a ball forms.
Press into a pie or 8×8 cake pan and set aside. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler. Spread melted chocolate over the banana sunbutter mixture. Place in freezer for 10 minutes to harden the chocolate.
