  • 3 ripe, mashed, medium bananas (~1 cup when mashed)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (1 Tbsp to be used in the melted chocolate)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.

  2. Over a double boiler or in the microwave melt 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil. Complete the following steps as it is melting.

  3. Combine all wet ingredients in a bowl, including the mashed bananas, honey, applesauce, coconut oil, eggs and vanilla extract.

  4. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients, including the oat flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and the other 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.

  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and fold the wet and dry ingredients together, making sure not to over mix.

  6. Spray a 4×8 inch loaf pan with nonstick spray and line with parchment paper.

  7. Pour your banana bread batter into the lined loaf pan.

  8. Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the unbaked loaf and swirl it into the batter slightly.

  9. Bake for 60-70 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and a knife stuck into the middle comes out clean.

  10. Let cool and enjoy!
