Banana Bread Nut Butter Spread
This banana bread nut butter spread is creamy, gooey and gives you the ability to turn any bread into banana bread!
- 1 1/4 cups almonds
- 1 cup walnuts
- 3/4 cups banana chips/dried banana
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- optional as needed: 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
- Place all ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and blend on high, scraping down the sides as needed, until smooth and creamy. The mixture will go through a few stages, first getting crumbly, then sticking in clumps, then finally smoothing out. It can take up to 15 minutes and you might need to add some coconut oil to help blend.*If you haven’t made your own nut butter before, this process might seem very time consuming but I promise it is worth it!
Has anyone made this by substituting the nuts for sunflower seeds? My grandson is extremely allergic to nuts, but he loves bananas and this recipe sounds like he would love it.
