Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

gluten free, dairy free

Chocolate and bananas, my two favorite things. I go BANANAS for bananas so you can't hate on them around here. Plus, you can catch me consuming some form of chocolate almost every single day. That's why this combo tastes incredible to me. If we're talking about combining foods, these two are a match made for one another.

If you love banana bread, and I know if you're here you probably do, then this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread will bring a smile to your face! It has a beautifully baked outside and a soft, flavorful inside that will make it hard to resist. Enjoy it for breakfast, as a snack, or as dessert!

This recipe is made with oat flour which is easy to make at home. All you do is throw some oats into a food processor or blender until ground (doesn't have to be fine). It saves me money and provides a nutritional flour for baking and cooking. You can buy it at stores as well if you’d rather not make it yourself. The other ingredients are pretty simple. I use coconut sugar but you can replace it with any granulated sugar you prefer. I like my bananas to have lots of brown dots to give the bread natural sweetness. And for the chocolate chips, I used 1/2 to 3/4 cup but you can definitely eyeball it depending on how much chocolate you like in your bread! 

As far as recipes go, this one’s an easy one! It’s as simple as mashing bananas, mixing the ingredients, and throwing it in the oven. This bread would be great to prep on the weekend and have throughout the week, or to eat some and freeze the rest for another time.

Give some to family, share with friends, and enjoy this delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!
