Deliciously moist and rich Healthy Chocolate Banana Bread! This easy gluten-free and dairy free treat made with almond and oat flour will become your new favorite snack or breakfast. For the non-chocolate version, try my Gluten Free Banana Bread!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 3 medium over-ripe bananas (very brown and spotty)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups packed super fine blanched almond flour
  • 3/4 cup oat flour* (certified gluten free if needed)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan.
  2. Place bananas, eggs, maple syrup, oil and vanilla in a blender or Nutribullet and blend until smooth. Alternatively, you can whisk by hand if you don't have a blender.
  3. Place almond flour, oat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl, stirring to combine.
  4. Add wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips, reserving a few for topping.
  5. Pour mixture into loaf pan and bake for about 55 minutes, or until a knife comes out almost clean. Allow bread to cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing and transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Notes

VEGAN: Sub flax egs.

*TO MAKE OAT FLOUR: If you don't have store bought, make your own by grinding old fashioned oats in the blender until it resembles a fine flour.

TO STORE: Keep bread on countertop in an air-tight container for up to 4 days. It stays moist for a surprisingly long time! If you still have some left, you can store in the fridge for up to 1 week or more and it will stay moist.

TO FREEZE: Wrap the loaf tightly in foil then in a plastic bag with the air squeezed out. It will stay fresh for up to four months. You can thaw it on the counter when you're ready to eat.
