Chocolate Banana Bread

the chocolate/banana bread obsession continues with this one 🍌 🍫 [~50 CAL PER SLICE🤩] I think this is my fav recipe to top my yogurt bowls with so far! So fudgy and rich, definitely give it a try!!

Ingredients

  • Bananas- essential for banana bread! Also helps provide structure and adds tons of benefits like potassium.
  • Eggs- helps create structure! Can sub for flax egg if vegan.
  • Granulated Sweetener- I used monk fruit sweetener; can replace with any granulated sweetener, but it will affect nutritional value unless it’s a zero calorie alternative.
  • Vanilla Extract- helps add flavor!
  • Cocoa Powder- I used Hershey’s special dark cocoa because I like a cake that’s darker and more rich.
  • Coconut Flour- probably my favorite flour! It has a high protein and fiber content, and is super absorbent, meaning you need less of it (this ingredient is very difficult to substitute).
  • Baking Soda- leavening agent to help banana bread rise.
  • Salt- helps enhance flavor.
  • Chocolate Chips (optional)- help add an extra something!

Recipe

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1/3-1/2 Cup Granulated Sweetener
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Tapioca Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • Pinch Salt
  • Chocolate Chips (optional)

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl add wet ingredients (mashed bananas, sweetener, eggs and vanilla) and whisk together until combined.
  3. Add in dry ingredients (cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda and salt).
  4. Pour into a loaf pan and sprinkle chocolate chips, if desired.
  5. Bake 40-50 min or until toothpick comes out clean (be sure not to overbake to keep fudginess).
