Gluten Free Banana Nut Blondies

Yield: 16 bars

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup coconut sugar

2 eggs

3 ripe medium bananas

1 tsp almond extract

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour blend of choice (make sure it has some sort of binder in the mix, ex: xanthan gum)

1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (F). In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter and coconut sugar. Mix until combined. While the mixer is running, add in the eggs (one at a time), bananas (broken into 2-3 inch chunks), and extracts. Let everything mix for 60-90 seconds until fully combined.

Stop the mixer and add in the gluten free flour and baking powder. Mix just until combined. Finish mixing by hand with a rubber spatula until no more loose flour remains. Mix in the sliced almonds.

Spread the batter into an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
