Healthy & Delicious Dark Chocolate chip Banana Bread (Gluten Free!)

Healthy & Delicious Dark Chocolate chip Banana Bread (Gluten Free!)

Is there really anything better than a slice of grilled banana bread with coffee in the morning?  Well yeah… fitting into skinny jeans is perhaps a bit more preferable.   A traditional banana bread holds little to zilch nutritional value.  Instead it is a sugar bomb that leaves your insides wishing you reached for the box of donuts instead.  But this gluten free AND dairy free version?  Well it’s as close to guilt free indulgence that you’ll ever get.  Plus it is absolutely DELICIOUS! 

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill Organic!)
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut or almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 dark chocolate bar chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon grade A maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Other optional add ins (mix & match): 1/3 cup raspberries, 1/4 cup granola, 1 apple (sliced and peeled), 1/2 packet stevia, 1 tsp fresh lime juice, 2 tbs orange juice,  1/4 cup fresh cranberries, 1/3 cup blackberries, 1/4 cup pecans

I think this bread is just absolutely delightful straight from the oven, but my favorite way to enjoy it is to grill a piece in coconut oil on my cast iron skillet and serve hot.  yum.
