ACCRA-BANANA INSPIRED

This is my healthy version of Accra-Banana. I simlpy replaced cassava/yuca with Oatmeal and instead of deep frying, I baked ;) I later decided to add Almond and interestingly, the Almond version scored more points among my very rigid panel of Food-critics (aka husband, kids & a couple of teenage neighbors). I’m just very, very pleased that they’re eating their way to good health; down to the last bite and I wish same for you :-) This is made with so much LOVE & PASSION, I might as well just call the creation: ♥*PASSIONista ACCRA*♥ LOL!!!!!!

 I N G R E D I E N T S:

  • 2 cups Oatmeal (grind 1 cup to fine powder)
  • 1 cup Almond meal (if you don’t have Almond meal, I guess you could use Whole wheat flour?? My “food crtics” would tell you they prefer it with Almond meal & I agree.
  • 1/3 cup Coconut oil (I guess you could substitute with Canola oil – you’ll lose the coconut flavor; it’s still OK)
  • 1/3 – ½ cup Agave Nectar (depending on how sweet you prefer. Note that AGAVE has double the benefit: It’s healthier & sweeter than sugar, so you use less than sugar)
  • OVERRIPE bananas (about 5-6 medium size or 2½ cups) Use a whisk and mash, don’t blend)
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Flavor
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

D I R E C T I O N S:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
  2. Spray baking pan with cooking oil. Set aside
  3. In a large bowl, combine Oatmeal, Almond-meal, Baking Soda and Salt.
  4. In a blender, pour Coconut Oil, Vanilla flavor, Agave Nectar, Eggs and blend.
  5. Pour this mixture into Mashed Bananas and mix well.
  6. Pour Oatmeal/Almond mixture into banana mixture into & stir.
  7. Use a tablespoon & put each lump of batter into prepared baking pan.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  9. Serve with Love in your Heart and a Big Smile on your face. Believe me, they’ll come back for more :-) ♥ ;):-) ♥ ;):-)

NOTE:

Keep in mind that the mixture may look soft/moist but that’s OK. However, if you really really want it thicker, just add some Almond. I make it moist b’cuz the picky eaters in my household prefer it that way even though they would wipe out the less moist version (pic below) in no time. Hope you enJOY every bite; moist or otherwise ♥~♥

  • Thank you so much for sharing your AWESOME recipe T, I am going to replace the eggs in mine with flax seeds(can be used as a binding agent, when left in water for a while, becomes gooey :)) or a vegan egg substitute, I can’t wait to taste this DELIXIOUSNESS!!! Love you <3<3<3
