This Chocolate Almond Butter Slice reminds me of caramel slice but without all the usual unhealthy ingredients. It’s also gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. Almond butter is so creamy and delicious making it a great ingredient in a slice. If you don’t have almond butter on hand, you could substitute peanut butter or perhaps another nut or seed butter. This is a thin slice but a little goes a long way. You could double the recipe to make a thicker slice.
This banana ice cream doesn’t require any time-consuming beating or costly ice cream machines! It also doesn’t contain any dairy so it’s a wonderful treat for all the dairy intolerant folk out there who miss out when it comes to ice cream. Surprisingly it tastes like real banana ice cream too! With different variation options, there’s a flavour everyone will like. Make sure to use ripe bananas, even ones going brown, for a sweeter, creamier ice cream. The addition of almond butter adds some healthy fats and nutrients while the coconut cream makes it creamier. I don’t add sweeteners because bananas have a high sugar content.
Delicious, wholesome and healthy! What more could you want from an easy and fool-proof banana bread recipe that everyone can eat? Using gluten-free oat flour instead of the traditional wheat flour, and dairy-free milk makes this banana bread easier to digest, less allergenic for those of us wheat, gluten and dairy intolerant folks and it’s full of dietary fibre! Plus it tastes so healthy! I made this for my partner for the first time and he closed his eyes on the first bite and said OMG this is awesome!
Make sure your oats are gluten-free if you are wheat or gluten intolerant, and if you are one of the few coeliac people who cannot tolerate GF oats, please use gluten-free plain flour instead. You could also use gluten-free self-raising flour but you would need to omit the baking powder. I have made this recipe before with a mixture of flours- 1 ½ cups of oat flour and half a cup of GF plain flour which was nice too. If you don’t have milk on hand, you could probably add water instead. It’s not overly sweet as it is but you could omit the coconut sugar or honey for an even healthier sugar-free banana bread! You can serve it with butter if you can eat dairy which is to die for, drizzle with almond butter or a sugar-free jam. It’s also just as delicious by itself!
If you are coeliac and unsure if you can tolerate GF oats, read our article ‘Are oats gluten-free?’ Click here. Please check with your practitioner for advice.
