Dark Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Hi everyone! This week I had a bunch of ripe bananas lying around my house, so I decided to make some banana bread. I looked up a recipe on Pinterest, and thanks to The Happier Homemaker, I baked up a tasty treat! However, I did change some of the ingredients to make it a bit healthier. In my version, there’s no refined sugar and I used oat flour. I also added in some dark chocolate chunks. Yum! I hope that you enjoy this lightened up recipe.

Super Moist Banana Bread

Makes: 6-8 servings

Total Time: 80-90 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 chia egg (made by soaking 1 tbs of chia seeds in 1/3 cup water for 15 minutes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

Directions :

  1. Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the melted coconut oil, egg, vanilla and maple syrup and mix well.
  3. Next, measure out the oat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and dark chocolate and stir into the banana mixture.
  4. Pour the batter into a loaf pan greased with coconut oil. Bake for at least 45 minutes.
  5. If you notice that the outside is browning but the inside looks a bit raw still, don’t worry. Remove the loaf from the oven, let cool, wrap with tinfoil and place in the fridge. Once the loaf has been in the fridge for a bit, the inside will firm up.
  6. Enjoy!

I hope you like this healthy, incredibly moist banana bread! Thanks again to The Happier Homemaker for the inspiration for the recipe! I’m going to go have some right now…

Yours Truly,
