I’ve always loved banana bread. My mom used to always make the most amazing buttery banana bread that oozed with dark chocolate and it’s one of my favourite tastes. This is my grain free version, it’s crumbly, oozing with gooey chocolate chips and bursting with mushy banana flavour. If you like it, give my Blueberry Banana Bread a go.
Start by mashing your bananas with a fork. Add the bananas, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla and honey into a bowl and mix.
In a separate bowl, combine the ground almonds, baking powder and cinnamon and mix it all together. Then add it to the wet ingredients.
Next, chop up your dark chocolate into little chunks, whatever size you like.
Add the chocolate into the mixture and stir it in evenly.
Grease your bread tin with coconut oil and pour the mixture in.
Bake at about 170’C for about 55 minutes on the lower rack of your oven, until golden and crisp on top and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean- the exact amount of time will depend on your oven. It will firm up a little when cooled so let it cool before slicing.
