Super Healthy Banana Bread

Bursting with all kinds of goodness, this moist chocolate-y banana bread is sure to satisfy! I like to substitute quinoa flour into my baking recipes for extra protein and nutrients, as well as coconut palm sugar (since its natural, unrefined, and has a low glycemic index) and a super healthy oil (like coconut).   You can always use regular flour/sugar if that’s what is available – it will work great too!

Recipe:

2 Cups Quinoa Flour

2 Cups Coconut Palm Sugar

1  1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Teaspoon “Up the Anti!” Spice Blend

4 Medium Mashed Bananas

3/4 Cup “Half Baked” Coconut/Pumpkin Seed Oil

2 Eggs

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans/Walnuts

1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl (except nuts and choc chips).

Mix all wet ingredients in a different bowl and stir well.

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well.

Dust nuts and chocolate chips with a little flour (this prevents them from sinking to the bottom), and add to the mixture to combine.

Grease a loaf pan with a little coconut oil spray, and fill with bread mixture.

Bake at 350’F for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out mostly dry.  (Due to variance in oven temperatures, up to 10 minutes more or less in baking time may be needed for best results).
