Dear Future Me,
If I could share one tiny piece of advice with you, it would be exactly this…
Live your life being the best you that you can be and don’t have regrets. If you want the stick, go get the stick!
Do what your heart leads you to do and know that despite the outcomes in life, your intentions are always pure. The sky is yours beautiful.
Lastly, when in doubt, make this Dark Chocolate Banana Bread. It will make your head, heart and tummy very happy!
If you are looking for a moist banana bread with sweet dark chocolate throughout, this is your lucky day!
Dark Chocolate Banana Bread
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup swerve sweetener (honey, agave, maple syrup or sugar)
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix dry ingredients together and put aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine mashed bananas, vanilla, eggs, coconut oil, applesauce and sweetener. On a medium-low speed, mix these ingredients together until combined. You can also mix these by hand.
Add dry ingredients to the large mixing bowl with wet ingredients. Mix until combined.
Then fold in your dark chocolate chips.
Grease a large bread pan with butter or coconut oil. For easy clean up, you can use parchment paper.
Pour batter into prepared bread pan and place into oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes until the edges and top of bread are golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
When done baking, remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from pan.
You can store the bread covered on the counter or in the refrigerator. We enjoy our sweets cold for some reason!
