Absolutely Awesome Almond Butter- Banana Bread Squares

One of my favorite things to bake is Banana bread. I may not share that much here on the blog but is one of my "most commonly baked items". Although I have a sweet tooth, I do make a conscious effort to make my treats as "healthy" as possible. This past weekend I cached the baking bug and decided to check the web for yummy {and somewhat healthy} recipes. I found this one on the Cooking Light website which turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. Once  I realized I had the ingredients in my pantry, I got to work.

Another thing I love is almond butter and so, I adapted the recipe to include 1/3 cup of almond butter. Guys, this was the best idea I've had in a very long time. Absolute Heaven.


Prep Time:
Click on the Cooking Light recipe above for exact measurements. Didnt see the point of copy/pasting on here. I followed the exact recipe except for the fact that I added the 1/3 cup of almond butter. 

To the Oven We Go at 350 degrees {couldn't find my favorite banana bread pan so a random pan had to do}:

...thanks to the pan, instead of baking regular banana bread I had to make the best out of what I was able to find. I had the "bright" idea of turning this  calling this recipe banana bread squares and prepped them in to snack bags to have them as a treats throughout the work week:

Perfect timing as I ran out of my granola bars, so now I have a nice home-made replacement :)

I may or may not recommend smearing a nice dollop of almond butter on top of these before you eat them and while you're at it, pour yourself a cup of almond milk. 

You're welcome. 

Tell me, what is YOUR favorite thing to bake?



  1. OMG they look really good! I've done banana and peanut butter, but almond sounds way better!

    1. Thanks Irasema. They were very good. I havent tried the peanut butter version but thanks for the idea :)
