Frozen Banana Bars

Kinda, sorta, totally in love with these Frozen Banana Bars.  They are perfect for summer, as no heat is involved in making them.  And even better, they are super easy to throw together!


If you like banana ice cream then you are sure to love these.  They are raw, Vegan and Paleo and although they contain nuts you can substitute sunflower or pumpkin seeds to make them allergy free as well.  I also find them quite sweet but they are only sweetened with bananas.  Winning! 😉


They truly are the perfect summer treat!


So, enough hype…let’s get to the recipe!


Frozen Banana Bars



  • 1/2 Cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 Cup whole, raw pecans*
  • 1/3 Cup whole, raw walnuts*
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of Himalayan pink salt


  • 3 extra ripe bananas
  • 1 Cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp xanthum gum (optional)**


  1. Combine all base ingredients in food processor and blend until mixture can be pressed together and hold shape (only 1-2 minutes).
  2. Remove base from food processor and press into lined 8″ x 8″ pan (or smaller).
  3. Combine all ingredients for filling in food processor.  Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour filling on base and place in freezer for at least 4 hours.
  5. Remove from freezer once set, cut and serve.
  6. Store in freezer.

*You can substitute any nut or seed for the pecans and walnuts.  Also, if you desire a thicker base, then use more nuts.

**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.


Before freezing these bars I added more cinnamon to the top for decoration.  You can create a design in the filling by making cinnamon stripes and then, using a toothpick, stir the mixture.


And a chocolate drizzle is never a bad idea 😉  I drizzled a few bars with chocolate before serving.
