Coconut Almond Banana Bread


Description

The best low carb + gluten free banana bread! Who doesn’t love a slice of this traditional treat drizzled with some extra nut butter?!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut shreds (optional but fun)
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks (any type of chips work! I used minis once and it was AMAZING!)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl.
  3. Add the eggs, almond butter, and agave. If needed, microwave the almond butter for 15-30 seconds to loosen it up so everything can be mixed together properly.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, unsweetened coconut shreds, baking powder, and sea salt.
  5. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
  6. Then, fold the chocolate chunks into the batter, reserving some for the top.
  7. Line a bread pan with parchment paper, tucking the paper around the sides to keep it in place.
  8. Pour the batter into the lined pan, spreading it out evenly.
  9. Press the remaining chunks into the top.
  10. Pop it in the oven and bake for 30-35 or until the top is golden brown.
  11. Remove the banana bread from the oven and pull on the edges of the parchment paper to remove it from the pan.
  12. Place the banana bread (and parchment paper) on a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes before cutting into slices.
