Ingredients – Everything You Need
This recipe consists of simple ingredients that you should be able to find at your local grocery store! Here’s everything you’ll need plus helpful ingredient swaps if needed.
almond flour: we like using this for it’s nutritional value and it’s naturally gluten-free. You can also swap for all-purpose flour.
oats: use gluten-free oats if needed.
bananas: we like them to be extra ripe (not rotten!)
chocolate chips: we love using semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips.
eggs: we only know this recipe to be successful with just eggs and have not tested any egg replacements.
sugar: coconut sugar is a favorite in my kitchen. It’s naturally, unrefined, and responds in baking JUST like brown sugar. Of course you can swap for brown sugar if needed!
peanut butter: I like using natural peanut butter because it’s easy to stir and works great in baking. Swap for almond butter if desired!
butter: I keep things dairy-free in baking. So we use vegan butter, you can also swap for regular butter (preferably unsalted).
vanilla: pure vanilla extract always adds delicious flavor to baked goods.

What should bananas look like for this recipe?
You can use ripe yellow bananas, but traditional recipes call for bananas to be really ripe — with brown spots or nearly all brown. Bananas will also get aromatic when really ripe.
We absolutely LOVE this recipe and make it on repeat! Whether you make it into muffins or bread I can promise you will enjoy every bite.
