Baked Almond Butter Banana Boat! Vegan + Paleo friendly!

Hey guys!

New Cheap Clean Eats recipe! I made this one night when I was craving bananas and nut butter but didn’t want to eat them as a frozen sandwich or lukewarm…so I baked it…and it was amazing. It was even more epic when I let the ooey gooey creation sit in a warm bath of creamy almond milk. Yes yum. Completely paleo, gluten free, and vegan! A super simple, inexpensive, and uber delish dessert. Give it a try:

Baked Almond Butter Banana Boat


– 1 ripe banana

– 1 TBS almond butter (peanut butter ok too) – I used Justin’s Maple Almond Butter

– 1/2 cup of almond milk

– dash of cinnamon

– stevia or honey to taste (optional and only if extra sweetness is needed)


1. Split the banana in half and fill with almond butter

2. Wrap in a foil like a hotdog and put in the oven at 375F for 15 min

3. Warm almond milk in the microwave for 1 min

4. Place the banana boat in the almond milk

5. Add a dash of cinnamon on top!

6. You may also add stevia or honey to the almond milk if you need it to be sweeter.

Hope you like! Show me your creation if you make this by hashtagging your pic #cheapcleaneats on Instagram or twitter! Would love to see!

  • Mouth. Is. Drooling. Getting some bananas and making this TOMORROW. Awesome recipe Cassey!!! <3

    I tried this. It’s really yummie, but I left out the almond milk because my tastebuds are really sensitive to sweetness. Therefore the banana and the butter is enough to make my mouth and belly happy. I used peanutbutter though, but it’s still soo good!

    Cassey! I’m impressed. You’re on your vacay and still got these vids up and rolling? How do you not stress yourself out? I hope you’re enjoying every minute of your precious time off. And, I hope that you’re not tempted to break out a teaching session of fitness even on your vacation. That would be a crisis.

    Remember Cassey, if you see someone working out with slightly improper form, let it go! Just let it go!

    Cassey – you’re giving yourself away. It is so abundantly clear that your love of bananas and nut butters will never fade. Got it!

  • Such a great recipe! I’m definitely going to try this soon! Bananas and almond butter is the best combo ever!

  • I just tried this tonight (with only about 1/4 cup milk, and instead of putting it in the microwave I let the bowl sit on top of the toaster while the banana baked) and loved it!

  • Mallory M

    Can’t wait to try this!! Some ideas for some new cheap clean eats could be healthy rice crispy’s/granola bars, spinach and artichoke dip, or some sort of quinoa and veggie soup!
