While baking banana bread was surprisingly a trend in the initial days of lockdown among those who couldn’t even prepare scrambled eggs, the extended months of the Covid-19 pandemic only saw people not just polishing their kitchen skills while working from home but also trying to give different scrumptious variations to banana bread. This Sunday, we were in for a drool-worthy surprise as we stumbled upon a delicious recipe of Banana Bread Blueberry Collagen Bars which is sure to nourish our weekend vibe.
We don’t know whether it is the extra free time of Sunday or something comforting about the smell of warm banana bread fresh from the oven but we just can’t stop ourselves from wanting to whip up the incredibly easy and tasty Banana Bread Blueberry Collagen Bars.
Check out the recipe below:-
2 mashed bananas
2 tbsp olive oil (or coconut oil)
1/3 cup almond butter (or nut/seed butter)
1 egg (*V* or flax egg)
3 tbsp raw honey (*V* or maple syrup)
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 sea salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup blueberries
Sprinkle of cinnamon
2 scoops of collagen
Dash of lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350. Mix wet ingredients and then dry ingredients separately. Combine until well incorporated.
Fold in blueberries to mixed batter. Line an 8X6 rectangular or 8X8 square pan or glass dish w/ parchment paper. Pour in batter.
Sprinkle more blueberries on top! Press them down. Bake for 25-40 minutes (depends on size/depth of pan/dish) until no longer jiggles in the middle and starting to brown on the edges!
Let cool fully before cutting and serving.
