Scale

Ingredients

Crust (see notes for an oat option)

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 23 tbsp maple syrup

Blueberry Layer

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup blueberries ((fresh or frozen))
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Combine the almond flour and maple syrup in a bowl. Mix to create a sticky clumpy dough that holds together when pressed. Add 1 tbsp water if it seems too dry.
  3. Press the crust into an 8×5″ baking dish (or a loaf pan) lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes at 350F. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 15 minutes.
  4. While the crust is cooling, blend the bananas and 1/2 cup blueberries.
  5. Pour the purple puree on top of the cooled crust.
  6. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips, 1 cup blueberries, and coconut. Gently press down until the banana puree rises up covering everything.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes at 350F.
  8. Cool then chill overnight.
  9. The next day, slice and enjoy! Keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Notes

I much prefer this almond flour crust, but for an oat flour option see this recipe
