No sugar, no grain banana bread

Now, I know what you're thinking. This is going to be dry/mushy/tasteless/grainy. I am happy to say you will be so wrong! Someone (I wish it was me) has found a yummy banana bread recipe that I feel good about eating. I got the recipe here thanks to a friend who passed it my way. 

It's very easy to make but you need to use VERY ripe bananas. She stresses that in her recipe to use bananas destined for the freezer, a week ago. 

Yield: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 4 very ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder (this is my add-in)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips 
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Put ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined
  3. Pour into a loaf pan that has been greased or lined with parchment
  4. Bake for about 60 minutes or until the centre seems not to jiggle when you wiggle it a little (in original recipe she says to bake 45-60 but in the times I've made it, I bake for about 65 minutes)

I used high cocoa content chips but you could easily chop up a dark bar if you can't find dark chips.
With all those eggs, it's good for breakfast! It seems to taste better at room temperature, but that might just be me. FYI, I tried it last night with only 3 eggs (rather than the 4 it calls for) and while it was edible (it has already been eaten), it didn't set up as nicely and it took an extra 20 minutes in the oven.
