|This dark chocolate banana bread disappeared pretty darn quick - good thing I didn't wait to take a picture!|
Paleo Dark Chocolate Banana Bread
2 cups blanched almond flour (almond meal should work too)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 ripe banana's, mashed (I used previously frozen ones)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (preferably over 70% cacao)
REVISED - I ACTUALLY TRIED THIS RECIPE AGAIN AND DID THE EXACT SAME THING BUT ADDED 1/2 CUP OF GROUND FLAX (GOLDEN OR BROWN IS FINE) AND IT WAS EVEN MORE FABULOUS "SUPERSTAR, CAN'T BELIEVE ITS NOT WHEAT" BANANA BREAD.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan (I used butter in a glass Pyrex loaf pan and it didn't stick at all). Combine almond flour, cinnamon and baking soda. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then add the water, vanilla, agave and mashed banana's - mixing thoroughly. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake for 50 minutes or until knife comes out clean in the centre. Let cool before slicing. Watch it disappear and have to come up with something else for snacks tomorrow.
