Banana Bars with White Chocolate Chunks

This recipe for Banana Bars with White Chocolate Chunks is one of those recipes that exist by chance. Having to use up ingredients and craving something totally different, makes you get creative.

Banana & white chocolate

I needed to use up a few overripe banana’s but I was also craving blondies with white chocolate. It’s known that banana pairs well with chocolate, but did you know it’s also great with white chocolate? Well, it is. These banana bars are super moist and fluffy and are studded with chunks of white chocolate. Delicious!

Ingredients

3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (ca. 260 g)

1 egg

1/4 tsp salt

25 g Tagatesse

25 g coconut blossom sugar

120 g buckwheat flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

60 ml walnut oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

60 g (sugar free) white chocolate chips/chunks

Instructions

Preheat oven to 170°C, line a baking dish and get all your ingredients ready.

We ate these bars plain, but I’m sure they would be fantastic with a cream cheese frosting.

Recipe Notes

* Tagatesse is a sweetener that is twice as sweet as regular sugar. If using another sweetener or sugar, you'd want to double the amount used.

** May be substituted with any other oil.

*** I used a piece of sugar free white chocolate cut up into chunks, but regular chocolate chips are fine.
