CHOCOLATE CHUNK BANANA LOAF


Alright I admit it, I have a HUGE sweet tooth. And unfortunately, having a sweet tooth doesn’t exactly vibe with a low-carb diet. After my few months eating solely ketogenic, I’ve been working on very slowly introducing some healthy carbohydrates back into my diet. I’ve seen a few food bloggers make banana loafs, and they always look incredible, so I had to try my own with as low amount of sugar as possible.  

This is actually the first time that I’ve completely written my own recipe for a baked good. Baking is a bit more out of my comfort zone than cooking — looks of measurements scare me. But I’m telling you guys… this is the real deal. You NEED to try this recipe and get a chance to swap out classic sugary banana bread with this.

Makes 8-10 large slices.

Here’s what you’re gonna need:

  • 1.5 ripe mashed bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted
  • 1.5 cups of almond flour
  • 1 cup of coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tbsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1 dark chocolate bar, cut into chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf tin with coconut oil. Mash the bananas completely, and add in the mixed eggs. Add the honey, vanilla, and melted coconut oil (once it has cooled) and mix thoroughly.

In a separate medium bowl, combine dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and cinnamon) and whisk together.

Add whisked dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and fold until combined. Fold in the chopped dark chocolate.

Pour batter into the greased loaf tin and top with additional dark chocolate chunks or any other desired toppings. Bake for 30-40 minutes, checking periodically with a toothpick. Let cool before slicing and enjoying!
