Simple, Frozen Banana Bars without any added sugar or sweetener.  They have a nutty base and banana-coconut filling.  Perfect for a refreshing Paleo and Vegan summer treat.




  • 1 cup unsweetened, flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup whole, raw pecans*
  • 1/2 cup raw walnut pieces*
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • 3 large, extra ripe bananas
  • 1 cup coconut cream**
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp xanthum gum (optional)***


  1. For the Crust: combine all crust ingredients in food processor and blend until mixture can be pressed together and hold its shape.
  2. Remove base from food processor and press into lined 8" x 8" pan.
  3. For the Filling: combine all ingredients for filling in food processor.  Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour filling over base and place in freezer for at least 6 hours.  Optional: add additional cinnamon on top prior to freezing.
  5. Remove from freezer once set, cut into 16 pieces and serve.  Optional: drizzle with dark chocolate.
  6. Store in freezer.


*You can substitute any nut or seed for the pecans and walnuts.  

*Use just the cream from a can of full fat coconut milk.  Each can typically has about 1 cup of cream (which is enough for this recipe).

***I like using xanthum gum to create a smoother, thicker texture for the filling but it will not affect the taste.  You can omit if desired.
