Almond Flour Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Goals a.k.a. Yes, Banana Bread Can Be Grain-Free & Delicious!

My sis was having major PMS cravings today & she requested banana bread. Lord knows when she requests banana bread + she’s PMSing, I better respond with BANANA BREAD, or else…

I revamped my 6-ingredient banana bread (recipe here) just a bit but still kept this baby grain + gluten-free!

For me, banana bread needs to have a few qualities to be perfect… let me explain!

  • crumbly + browned on the outside
  • moist, chewy + decadent on the inside
  • chocolate is necessary!
  • naturally sweet flavour, but not overly sweet + a hella lotta vanilla
  • delicious + satisfying

This baby satisfies all the requirements!!!

YOU NEED:

  • 2.5 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 tbsp. raw organic honey
  • 3 eggs (or 3 flax/chia eggs – 3 tbsp. flax or chia seeds + 3/4 cup warm water combined + let sit for about 5 min. to gel up)
  • 1.5-2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 vegan dark chocolate bar, crumbled. We used @zazubean 80% dark chocolate
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup almond, cashew or peanut butter
  • 2 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract

TO MAKE:

  • Add the banana, vanilla, eggs, honey, coconut oil + almond butter to a blender & blend until incorporated.

  • Bake for 40-45 minutes until top is browned + a knife comes out clean!
  • Wait at least 10 minutes before slicing so that it cools + doesn’t break apart!
