Chocolate Banana Sunbutter Bars

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.

For the visual learners (including myself!) Here it is in pictures!! :)

Grind the banana chips in a food processor and place in bowl.

Grind the oats in the food processor

also process the sunflower seeds into a flour as well (sorry, no picture for this one!)

Process all of the ingredients together

Press into pan

Melt the chocolate

Spread over the mixture and freeze for 10 minutes.

No need for a container……store these in your belly……:)

  1. These look amazing and like a healthy replacement for the Special K Bars that everyone loves here in Minnesota! Plus, I totally am in love with Sunbutter even though we have no allergies.

  2. Reblogged this on thismammasheart and commented:
    oh man! how delicious and healthy do these look!!!! Im gonna have to try them, and I wanted to share them with you too…. thanks to all the wisdom from Ms. ColorWheel herself…*wink*

  3. These look really good. Assuming I can find sunbutter (any suggestions as to a good brand and or where to get some), I’ll be making these for my dh this weekend. He could use a little sweet treat. Thanks for sharing!

    • Meijer, Kroger, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods….are you close to any of these stores? They all carry it…it is basically just like peanut butter but made with sunflower seeds…if you cannot find it you could replace with peanut butter or almond butter!

    • Hi there,
      Hope you don’t mind me popping in. There is a little spot on the SunButter website where you can plug in your zip code and find where to find the product near you: http://bit.ly/9CeLC0
      There are a few online retailers listed there, too.
      And when you get it, let us know what you create with it!
      I can’t WAIT to make these bars for the gaggle of kids who land at our house after school. Take care!

  4. Made these this morning! OH. MY. GOODNESS. Absolutely in love with them! I am going to have to put a few pictures on my blog and send them here for your recipe. The husband totally loves them too! Thanks again for sharing.

  5. Great recipe, I can’t wait to try it! I’m wondering where you found sunflower seeds and banana chips that aren’t processed with peanuts?

  6. Girl, these were delicious! We made these tonight and everyone is dying over them. I don’t know how you thought to put all these unique ingredients together- but it sooo worked. Great job!
