Deliciously Simple Banana Bread Bars

Servings 8


  • 3 Ripe Bananas (about 1lb unpeeled)
  • 1/4 Cup Palm Shortening (*see notes for brand)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Tigernut Flour (*see notes for brand)
  • 1/3 Cup Tapioca or Cassava Flour (we use Cassava)
  • 1 tsp Grass-Fed Gelatin (*see notes for brand)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Mash bananas with a fork (or other form of mashing tool). Melt the palm shortening and mix with the banana mash and vanilla in a small bowl.

  3. Add all dry ingredients to a medium bowl and mix together. Then, add the banana-mash mixture and mix well.

  4. Line an 8x8in baking dish with parchment paper and scoop the batter into the dish (or just eat it... I may or may not have done this).  

  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until top is golden-brown.

  6. Let cool, and then slice into bars, and... eat them. YUM! Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
