Flourless Banana Blondies

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 12 blondies 1x


  • ½ cup (115 g) plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (32 g) almond butter*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) rolled oats (quick or old fashioned)**
  • 6 tbsp (72 g) coconut palm sugar***
  • 1/4 cup (28 g) coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium-size ripe bananas, mashed (200 g or 1 cup mashed)
  • 1/2 cup (~85 g) add-ins of choice****


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F (176C) and prepare an 8×8 (20x20cm) baking pan by lining it with a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper, leaving a few inches of overhang on the sides to allow for easy removal. Grease the foil with oil or cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Add all of the ingredients except for the bananas to a high-speed blender in the order listed, and process on high until the oats have fully broken down and the batter becomes smooth and creamy, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Transfer the batter to a large mixing bowl and gently fold in the mashed bananas. Finally, fold in your add-ins.
  4. Pour the batter into your prepared baking pan, using a spatula to distribute it evenly. Bake for 22-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the blondies from the oven and let them cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.


* You could also use peanut butter, or use a soy nut butter to make these nut-free. ** Make sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need these to be gluten-free. OR you can use 1/2 cup (56 g) of blanched almond flour to make these grain-free. *** You could also use regular brown sugar. **** I went with mini chocolate chips and crushed walnuts for the recipe pictured here, but you could go with any DRY add-ins that you want (i.e.: seeds, nuts, chocolate, dried fruit, etc.) I would avoid using fresh fruits, as the added moisture could alter the texture.
