Serve it up with your favorite fruits and berries Maybe a dab of honey. Just like traditional yogurt, its a blank canvas: mix it up however you feel!
Part brittle, part granola, it’s branola! Packing the power of sprouted buckwheat and nuts. It takes a little forethought to soak the ingredients overnight, but it’s definitely worth it for all those extra enzymes and nutrients. And because they’re sprouted, they’re easier to digest. And that’s great, because you’re probably gonna find yourself eating a lot of this.
Granola makes for an awesome snack, but so much of the stuff that comes pre-made is loaded with refined sugar and artificial sweeteners. This delicious granola brittle on the other hand is sweetened with fruit and raw honey, adding even more healthful enzymes to the mix. Apricots, bananas, dates and goji berries hold it all together and make for a super delicious snack.
With golden flax, nuts, and sprouted buckwheat, it’s is also a delightful way to load up on healthy your essential fatty acids. Whether you enjoy it as a brittle or as granola; for breakfast or for a nice afternoon snack, this banana nut branola will keep you smiling.

Raise your hand if you remember BON BONS? Yes, the little chunks of ice cream covered in chocolate that you just popped in your mouth. There was just something about them that made you feel like royalty when you indulged in them. In fact most of us think that royalty just “lay around eating bon bons”… Was it the rich creamy ice cream? Was it the decadent chocolate that they were dipped in? Was it the fact that they were the perfect way to BLOW YOUR DIET? What ever it was, I had my fair share of them in my days past. Now that I do not indulge in any of the conventional ingredients that traditional bon bons are made of, how am I to feel like royalty again? I can regain that feeling without all the stuff I don’t want by making my recipe for BANANA BON BONS. Yes.. they are still frozen treats. YES.. they have a creamy and dreamy center.
OH YES.. they are covered in decadent chocolate! Since they have ALL of the bon bons beloved components, what is missing? Well these little guys are missing the cholesterol, dairy, refined sugar, trans-fat, preservatives, emulsifiers, and highly processed artificial ingredients that the commercially produced bon bon have. I am sorry that I had to just ruin the fantasy of the other bon bons but wait….. Here is what this recipe has–Banana, coconut oil, date syrup, cacao and shredded coconut; and they are raw vegan paleo. You can definitely feel good about those ingredients and that they conform to a healthy lifestyle! AND again, the creamy dreamy chocolate covered frozen treat that TASTES AMAZING! So even though we crave bon bons, we can ALL indulge in BANANA BON BONS and feel like royalty again! BON BON APPETIT!
The aroma of the Almond Banana Brittle Cookie Squares drying in the dehydrator is equivalent to baking chocolate chip cookies in the oven! One of two things almost happened… I would pitch a tent in my pantry to camp out below the dehydrator or I was going to bring the machine into my bedroom. It was just heavenly. One thing I noticed when I had switched to a high raw diet was that my sense of smell really developed and trust me, this bar caused my nose to go into hyperdrive mode!
These bars are firm, crispy and chewy all in one. My husband loved the ones with chocolate the most, but then he does love chocolate. The combination of the almonds, bananas and chocolate created a wonderful medley of flavors. Bob and I bantered back and forth a bit as to what to call them… bars? cookies? He thought they were too thin to be bars and well, I didn’t think the square shape reminded me of a cookie. We playfully duked it out… we met in the middle… Almond Banana Brittle Cookie Squares. LOL He walked away smiling as he went to eat another one.
So call them bars, call them cookies, call I’ll want one when you make them.
