Who else loves banana bread!?
I know I do, especially when it’s getting colder outside and all you want is a warm banana loaf to snack on when you get home from class.
Buuuut coming off Halloweekend, the last thing you want to do is eat something unhealthy–at least, if you’re anything like me.
Enter: gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free vegan banana bread. And depending on the chocolate you use, it could also be paleo*, but no matter what, it’s delicious. Trust me, this is too good to pass up, even if you’re not vegan or gluten-free.
- 3 overripe bananas
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 1 flax egg
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ½ cup almond flour
- 1 cup dairy free chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350º F.
In a large bowl, mash together the bananas with a fork. Then whisk in the coconut oil, flax egg and coconut sugar.
Add the vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda and salt and mix until combined.
Next, add in the two flours and the chocolate chips. Be careful not to overmix here, because you don’t want a tough loaf; lumps here and there are okay.
Bake in a greased pan for 45-50 minutes, then let cool completely before slicing–it’s super moist!
* for paleo chocolate I like to use Eating Evolved, but they don’t make chips, so I would suggest just breaking them into small pieces like I did with my paleo cookies. the brand I use for non-paleo goods is Equal Exchange.
