    Instructions

    • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9” cast iron pan. Alternatively, you can bake in a 9” cake pan or square pan.
    • Add the real eggs or if vegan, prepare the flax eggs as described above and set aside.
    • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the eggs, mashed banana, nut butter, sugar/syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla. Vegan: once flax eggs have thickened, stir them in as well.
    • Then in the same bowl, add the almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, mix well to form a thick batter. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts, leaving out a handful or two to sprinkle on top before baking.
    • Transfer mixture to the prepared skillet or pan, then sprinkle remaining chocolate chips and walnuts over the top.
    • Bake 28-32 minutes or until edges are browned and the top is set. Remove from oven and allow the skillet to cool on a wire rack for about 15-20 minutes, or until the skillet is cool enough to handle. Slice and serve, or simply dig in! I
    • Optional: top with coconut vanilla ice cream, but a great coconut yogurt will work well too if you want it to be “breakfast-y”. Enjoy!
