3. Walnut Chocolate Chunk Brownies
In the mood for a nutty, gooey brownie? Then I have just the thing!
You’ll use banana flour in place of all-purpose to create a batch of dense and fudgy brownies you’ll want to drown in.
The recipe actually uses a blend of both banana flour and almond flour for a unique nutty flavor that pairs perfectly with walnuts.
Throw in some dark chocolate chunks, and watch as these babies vanish.
4. Banana Flour Chocolate Chip Cake
Yes, you can even use banana flour in cakes!
However, since it absorbs a lot of liquid during the baking process, you’ll need the same amount of apple sauce to help keep things moist.
Along with the banana and apple, you’ll add plenty of chocolatey goodness with a heaping portion of mini chocolate chips.
Did I mention this recipe is vegan? That’s right, so you won’t need any eggs.
The finished product is light, packed with flavors, and impossibly moist and delicious.
This recipe is excellent if you want to make a cake that’s easy on the calories with added nutrition.
5. Chocolate Chip Banana Blondies
Classic chocolate chip blondies capture everything you love about thick and chewy cookies.
And this version is extra special because it’s free from wheat and dairy.
Still, they’re light and fluffy with a delicate crumb that’s hard to resist. You can use almond flour for a nutty flavor or banana flour for added sweetness.
Coconut sugar and almond milk keep this recipe vegan while also sneaking in a hint of added flavors.
Plus, these are a breeze to make. Preparing the batter takes around 10 minutes, and the tray only needs 35 minutes in the oven.
Let them cool if you can. Otherwise, grab a fork and dig in!

7. Very Berry Resistant Starch Smoothie
It’s not always easy to achieve a perfectly thick smoothie – unless you have a high-powered (and high-priced) blender.
But this berry smoothie earns its ice cream-like thickness from the banana flour. It acts like a thickening agent, making the finish insanely rich and filling.
Featuring blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries, it’s full of goodness, bright colors, and plenty of natural sweetness.
Plus, you can play around with the flavors and add things that suit your tastebuds, like matcha powder, vanilla yogurt, or a handful of spinach.

They’re also gluten- and dairy-free and perfect for those in AIP or Paleo diets.
With zero processed sugar, they get their subtle sweetness from maple syrup, banana flour, and mashed bananas.
For the best flavor, ensure the bananas are super ripe. They should be brown and spotty!
9. Healthy Beetroot Brownies
Adding beetroot to brownies sounds strange, but it’s worth it once you get a taste of these!
Cooked beets and banana flour transform these brownies into mouth-watering red velvet delights that are soft, chewy, and insanely delicious.
Did I mention they’re also healthy?
