Chocolate Chip & Cinnamon Banana Bread – Paleo Style

Chocolate. Cinnamon. Bananas. What a combo!

I love baking, as you know, and it’s been a while since I whipped up a banana bread. Let alone, a gluten free, grain free, dairy free banana bread, with NO added sugar!

This bread is DA BOMB! It’s so full of flavour and free of many allergens.

I got the idea from Make Ahead Paleo to include a cinnamon-y topping. I’ve never done this in the past and couldn’t resist testing it out! This delicious “crust” added the perfect sweetness. I highly suggest you test it out! I guess you could say there is some added sugar, since it’s included in the topping, but you can feel free to omit this.

So let’s get baking! Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do 🙂Image 3

Paleo Chocolate Cinnamon Banana Bread
Makes 1 LoafIngredients:

DRY:
1 ½ cups almond flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup arrowroot starch
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground vanilla bean
½ tsp sea salt

WET:
3 large ripe bananas
4 eggs
1/3 cup hemp milk (almond or coconut work well too)

EXTRAS:
1 cup chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)
½ cup walnuts (optional- I didn’t use any)

TOPPING:
1 tbsp coconut sugar
¾ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp almond flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl combine all DRY ingredients. In a large bowl combine all WET ingredients using a hand mixer. Mix until bananas are well combined and mixture is fluffy. Add DRY ingredients into WET and stir until fully incorporated. Stir in EXTRAS. I used chocolate chips. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and pour in batter.

In a small bowl combine TOPPING ingredients and sprinkle evenly on top of loaf. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until center is set and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from loaf pan and let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

Serve with grass fed butter or your favorite nut butter. YUM!

Enjoy xo

To your AMAZING Health and Abundance,
