We all love treats so these come in handy so perfectly! The make a great grab-n-go snack or breakfast. Also, I love the additional protein and fiber that comes from Silk Almond Milk Protein and Fiber plus.

5 Tbsp butter; softened
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chocolate chips..or a little more ­čÖé

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, honey, and brown sugar. Once butter is creamed with honey and sugar, slowly add in vanilla, egg, and egg whites.

2. In a small seperate bowl, mash together bananas with a fork until well mashed. Add bananas to batter mix until combined. Whisk in flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, 1/4 cup almonds, 1/4 cup chocolate chips, and almond milk until batter becomes smooth (batter will be a bit thick).

3. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter. Pour mixture in baking dish and smooth out with spatula until batter is completely even. Sprinkle with leftover chopped almonds and chooclate chips..I added a little more ;). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Let cool for 15 minutes and then cut into squares. Let cool on cooling rack for best results. Enojoy!
