  • 3 bananas
  • 1 cup of Once Again Cashew Butter
  • ¼ cup of unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 flax eggs 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal mixed with 3 tablespoons of warm water
  • ¼ cup of pecan flour or almond or oat flour


  1. Start by mashing the bananas; if you have overripe bananas, they are bursting with natural sugars and make the best choice!
  2. Add cashew butter to the bananas and mix well.
  3. Next, mix in cacao powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  4. In separate bowl combine flax eggs with the pecan flour and add to the overall mixture.
  5. If the mixture proves too runny, add a few more tablespoons of pecan flour to thicken. Pour the batter into sections of a muffin pan and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes or until done.
