Double Chocolate Banana Bread

So I made this Double Chocolate Banana Bread and I know you’ll love it. Maybe too much, but that’s ok!! Beeecause it’s super nutty, sugar free, and deelicious πŸ™‚

So let’s make some Double Chocolate Banana Bread:

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

In a medium bowl, combine Bob’s Red Mill blanched almond flour, baking powder, sea salt, and cocoa. Mix it up until it’s combined.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until it’s combined.

Fold in the chocolate chips, saving some for the top (always).

Line a bread pan with parchment paper. This is probably my favorite trick ever because you can just lift the bread out of the pan and don’t have to deal with gingerly turning it upside down on a plate and banging on the bottom like five times before it breaks apart in five pieces. Just me?

It works best if you fold and tuck the parchment paper around the edges, really molding it to the pan. 

Pour the batter into the lined bread pan, using a spatula to distribute it evenly.

I drizzled some extra almond butter on top (optional) and sprinkle with the chocolate chips.
