WOW! I had overripe bananas and did not want to make bread or cookies. Found this one and it is already in the recipe book. I am eating my 4th piece now! I did make a few changes. I used extra light olive oil instead of butter. Reduced the sugar by 1/2cup and used 1/2 brown/white. I replaced the almonds with walnuts and added coconut. I did not ice it at all. Super yummy. I do think I will reduce the amount of sugar by another 1/2 cup next time. The dates make it plenty sweet. If I was to ice it for taking it to an event, I would definately reduce the sugar. Oh yes, I mashed the bananas. I used 3 very ripe ones.-30 Mar 2009


Wow, this tastes SO good. I love dates and bananas together and this is no exceptioin. I cut the sugar back by 1/4 cup, didn't add any almonds because I didn't have any on hand, and used dried dates as opposed to the softer, moist ones packaged in plastic (although I'll definitely try to use those next time I make this). The end result was a moist delicious cake-like dessert that is just awesome with the lemon glaze on top. I made this on a whim and out of boredom, but I'll definitely be making this again and again in the future.-03 Jan 2006


This recipe was great! I had some dates to use up, so I decided to give it a try. My family loved them. They were moist and delicious, although my 4 year old thought the icing was too lemony, and made me scrape most of it off his pieces. I recommend it!-30 Dec 2001

Tips to ripen bananas:

If your bananas are not ripe enough, don't worry. Try one of these ideas to ripen your bananas:

  1. Place your bananas on a baking sheet and bake at 225º F for 20 minutes.
  2. If you aren't in a hurry, you can put your bananas in a brown paper bag and let them sit on the counter. (Don't forget to close the bag!)
  3. You can grill the bananas. Just slit down the skin and place on a grill. Close the lid and cook at 300º F for 15 minutes.

Chocolate is a must. This is a big rule my kids are trying to push on me. Other requirements. these cookie bars need to be gluten free, dairy-free, and the recipe must use coconut sugar for a low glycemic sweetener. (No need to have sugar buzzed kids running around!)

Why Get Enough Fibre In Your Diet?

One thing I’m focusing on for January is getting enough water and fibre in my diet. It seems sometimes, if I’m not being intentional about it, I can get less fibre than I need and it definitely slows down my digestion. It’s recommended that adults get at least 30g of dietary fibre each day so a delicious drink like this Banana Almond Butter Date Smoothie makes it super easy to get that fibre in.

The smoothie has multiple sources of fibre including banana, dates, flax seed, and chia seed. All of these provide a mix of soluble and insoluble fibre keeping your digestive system running nice and smooth. When your digestion is optimal your body can eliminate toxins efficiently, it promotes hormone balance, and of course you’ll just feel a whole lot better in general!

Banana Bread Date Bars Recipe

These Banana Bread Date Bars are made with no added sweeteners, whole grain flour, no oil, and are super moist and flavorful! They make a fabulous healthy treat.

Heads up! This recipe was first published in March 2014. Photographs were updated in July 2018. Text and recipe were not changed.

Ever since I got back from my Arizona trip, I’ve been trying to wake up at the same time I usually do. 6am is 3am in Phoenix, so I’ve had to force my eyes open and the rest of the day I’ve felt like I’m in a fog. I have lead feet as I try to do everyday tasks. I’m hoping it’s just jet lag and this will pass because I don’t like going through life feeling so tired.

The good thing is these Banana Bread Date Bars are a cinch to make and I was able to make them even despite my fatigue.

I made these as an attempt to satisfy my family’s sweet tooth with something healthy. I wanted something that would be tasty enough for dessert, yet healthy enough to be eaten for breakfast or a snack.

Enter the Banana Bread Date Bars! These bars are a cross between banana bread, cake, and a snack bar. They fit the bill perfectly if you are looking for a truly healthy treat.

There are no added sweeteners in this recipe and it’s made with 100% whole wheat flour. All the sweetness comes from the bananas and dates.

Applesauce has also replaced any oil, so they are lighter than your usual dessert or snack bar. Despite these healthifications (that’s a word!), they are bursting with banana flavor and are super moist.

Even better? They are very quick and easy. This is a one bowl recipe. I whipped this batch of Banana Bread Date Bars up while Luke was eating his lunch. It doesn’t get any easier!

Easy Almond Flour Banana Cookies

These Banana Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfectly soft, flavorful, and so easy to make. You would never guess that these cookies are made with just a handful of simple ingredients that are vegan, grain-free, and refined sugar-free!

Almond Flour Banana Cookie Recipe Breakdown

These secretly healthy cookies make the perfect snack, dessert, or breakfast treat! They are chewy and full of banana flavor and chocolate chips in every bite. Plus, they can be made in less than 20 minutes! All you will need for this recipe is a few simple ingredients. The base of this recipe is made from almond flour and overripe mashed banana.

It is important that you use almond flour in this recipe rather than almond meal. Almond meal will not produce the same texture if used in this recipe. Another important note is that you want to ensure the bananas you are using are overripe. You want them to be as ripe as possible in order to produce the sweetest cookie possible since that is where all of the sweetness in this recipe comes from.

If would like a slightly sweeter cookie, you may add a teaspoon or two of maple syrup to the dough.

This recipe is extremely simple and versatile. If you don’t want to add chocolate chips to these cookies, white chocolate and peanut butter chips will both also work well here!

One last note is that these cookies do not spread much in the oven so it is important to shape or flatten them into whatever thickness you desire.

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars

To make these healthy and easy peanut butter banana bars, you will need the following ingredients:

Ripe bananas, Old-fashioned oats and Peanut Butter!

A banana is an excellent fruit with tons of vitamins and nutrients! Bananas can help improve digestion as well as help moderate blood sugar. They also support heart health, and you know on this blog, we love the things that love the heart. Ensure to check out my heart-healthy salad here. Oats can fill you up for a longer time and can support weight loss. Oatmeal has soluble fiber and can help improve cholesterol and blood sugar! AWESOME! Peanut butter provides the needed healthy fat for this recipe. You can also use almond butter or any other nut/seed butter!

Baking soda will help this rise. Vanilla extract is great fro flavor. You can add nutmeg, cinnamon, or other spices of choice alongside vanilla extract if you wish. Chocolate chips: the chocolate chips are optional however, they totally elevated the already delicious peanut butter banana bars.

Maple syrup, Egg, Olive oil

To sweeten this bar, I use maple syrup you can opt for any other sweetener of choice. I typically add an egg to this recipe you can swap for a flaxseed egg to make this recipe vegan. Usually, I always like to add a teaspoon or two to these peanut butter banana oatmeal bars. EVOO is great for the heart, but this is optional!

How to make Peanut Butter Banana Bars:

Making peanut butter oat bars is not rocket science this is probably the easiest thing in the universe!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375, then grease a small baking pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. Mash bananas in a bowl and set them aside.
  3. Add olive oil, peanut butter, egg, and mix.
  4. Then maple syrup, salt, and mix well.
  5. Add baking soda, oats mix well. Finally, add the chocolate chips and combine.
  6. Pour the mixture into an already greased and parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 375 for 25 – 30 minutes. Allow cooling for at least 10 minutes before cutting!

Banana Peanut Butter and Date Smoothie

If there was ever a time that I could truly say how much I love a smoothie, this banana peanut butter and date smoothie would be it. I make this smoothie daily. It&rsquos the perfect post-workout drink (you can easily add in vanilla protein powder to this) or the perfect after-dinner treat to curb that sweet tooth.

Since I&rsquove been on my sugar-free challenge, this is what I have been having as a treat every evening. It&rsquos naturally sweetened due to the dates and it literally tastes like a dessert and it&rsquos actually GOOD for you because there is NO added sweeteners! It&rsquos all-natural and tastes like a million bucks.

Seriously, it&rsquos SOO good. I&rsquom 100% hooked and I&rsquom never hooked on smoothies. I even got my coworker to make it one morning and he loves it! When I say I&rsquom truly in love with a smoothie, this is the one.

With this smoothie, to preserve the flavor, I use ice and frozen bananas. I love my smoothies thick so the amount of ice you use will definitely vary depending on how you like your smoothies! I don&rsquot recommend using frozen fruit in this unless you want a mixture of fruit flavors but I beg you try this just as is first and tell me you don&rsquot love it just for its pure banana, peanut butter, and date flavor.
