Almond Vanilla Bars

I am always looking for a paleo low carb, low sugar snack after dinner, these do the trick,  have a cup of tea too.

They work  out to be about 4 grams of sugar per bar if you cut the tray into 16 squares. Can't even really feel guilty about that now can you?

This recipe is adapted from a recipe found on http://www.nourishingmeals.com/. Next time I am going to substitute the honey for apple sauce and see what happens. Stay tuned.

Almond Vanilla Bars

2 cups blanched almond flour
1/4 arrowroot flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp himalayan sea salt

1 organic banana
2 organic eggs
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or olive oil
meat scraped from 1 vanilla bean pod
1/4 cup of honey

Preheat oven to 325 convect bake. Mix dry ingredients together until there are no clumps. Melt coconut oil an set aside to cool. Lightly beat eggs and mash banana, combine and add the rest of the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry an mix until well combined. Pour into an 8x8 baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. To make these  super decadent try topping them with this.

Optional topping:

1 cup cashews soaked overnight
1 or 2  tbsp raw honey or maple cream

Blend until smooth and store in the fridge for up to a week. This topping can also be frozen an can be used in a variety or ways, on pancakes on fruit etc....
