Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread





Here's a quick post with this gluten free banana bread.   I have lots of bananas laying around in my kitchen, hence they end up being turned into delicious bread like this.  It's great for a quick snack or breakfast and it is darn healthy.  This one is in fact the redemption of my recent tendency.

I admit as the kids get older, I'm not as strict when it comes to junk food aka. treats as before.  I find myself more and more allowing them to have junk foods that I didn't allow before... like certain chips and sodas like slashes and cheetos.  Now they are older, they ask for those unhealthy but super fun food and I want to give that pleasure to them it even if I'm not so sure about it.  

So here I am making this super duper healthy treat to calm myself down about the dilemma.  I made this banana bread with loads of nutritious stuff like chia seeds, sweet potato flour, coconut flour, and coconut oil.  It's very moist and fluffy at the same time.  Thankfully the kids loved it especially with chocolate chips and it was gone in a second.  Can't go wrong with the combination of chocolate and banana.  I will probably give them junky treats here and there like I do with myself, but not too often! 




Recipe: A small loaf


Ingredients;

4 medium ripe bananas
1/3 cup of sweet potato flour
1/3 cup of coconut flour
1/3 cup of almond flour
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1 cup of chocolate chips
2 table spoons of coconut oil
1/3 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1teaspoon of baking powder
a pinch of salt


Direction;

Preheat the oven at 360°F / 180°C.  Mash 3 bananas in a large bowl.  Add eggs, sugar, coconut oil,  salt and vanilla extract in the bowl and mix it well together.  In a small bowl, combine all the flour and baking powder.  Add the dry ingredient mixture into the wet mixture and mix them well until it's smooth.  Add chia seeds and chocolate chips and mix it again.

Cut the parchment paper into the size that covers the baking sheet (Mine was 9"x4").  Crunch it up, open it to flatten and place it onto the baking sheet.  Pour the bread mixture, slice a banana into half and place them on the top.  Bake it for 25-30 minutes.  

Let it cool down and enjoy!
