We're improving our baking game by taking a delicious Blondie recipe and pairing it with the delicious taste of banana bread! I present to you Banana Bread Blondies with Walnut Streusel. It is sure to become a new favorite delight of the home! Paleo, grain free, gluten free and refined sugar free.
Why yes, I have another recipe for "banana bread" that you will love! Many of my banana recipes have been very popular lately. Something about this extra time on our hands is leading us to bake through this pandemic!
Comfort or boredom? Who knows. Anyway, I am here for you. To continue developing the recipes with which you will love to experiment.
What better way than with a blonde inspired by banana bread? Blondes are similar to brownies, but without the chocolate. They have a rich vanilla flavor and are generally made with brown sugar. I used coconut sugar in this variation, and with the sweetness of bananas, these are addictive (it's a word) delicious!
How to Make Banana Bread Blondies with Walnut Streusel:
We collect our simple ingredients:
- blanched almond flour
- coconut flour
- sodium bicarbonate
- sea salt
- coconut sugar
- ripe bananas
- cashew (or almond butter)
- vanilla extract
- chopped nuts
We begin by stirring the dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, baking soda and sea salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the beaten egg, mashed bananas, cashew butter, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract.

Fold dry ingredients wet and stir until no dry bags remain. Now pour and smooth the dough into an 8×8 skillet lined with parchment paper.
Make the streusel: combine the chopped walnuts, additional coconut sugar, almond flour, cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt and butter or ghee. Pour over the mixture. Bake for 22-24 minutes (depending on the oven).
Once you get out of the oven, wait at least 30 minutes to cool before cutting into squares. If you are very impatient, go ahead and refrigerate to speed up the process!
These will keep well at room temperature for 2-3 days. I keep most of my baked goods in the freezer, then remove them individually so that they thaw at room temperature for 20 minutes before I enjoy them.
