I love throwing collagen into my kids baked goods.
There’s really no reason not to add a little bit of protein to make their snack a little more filling and satisfying.
On the flip side, today’s recipe uses coconut flour and banana as its primary source of sweetness. They taste just like a good banana bread. Soft, sweet, and perfect for little hands and mouths.
I’ve been on a mission to make more baked goods without nuts yet equally great in taste and texture.
This can be difficult with coconut flour due to the high amount of eggs needed. If you’ve baked with coconut flour, you know what I’m talking about.
However, I am pleased to say these banana collagen bars are neither too egg-y or coconut-y.
For mix-ins, I used a mix of dark chocolate and raisins, though chopped nuts or shredded coconut are also great options. Additionally, you can make them completely fruit sweetened by omitting the honey and simply using super ripe bananas. The choice is yours as always, enjoy!
