Chocolate Banana Bread (GF & Vegan)


Do you have bananas🍌on your kitchen counter that are getting over ripe? Try this gluten free & vegan chocolate banana bread! 🤤


Truth be told🤭, I’ve never made vegan banana bread but I ran out of eggs over the weekend and didn’t want the bananas to go to waste! Hence this banana bread was born!👏


This recipe uses flax seed as a binder to help replace the missing egg 🥚. It has a higher fiber content than most recipes, which makes it a gut friendly option that tastes amazing 😻


Here's what you'll need!


Wet ingredients:

  • 3 bananas, mashed

  • 1/3rd cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4th cup maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (or almond milk)

  • 2 tbsps ground flax seed

  • 2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350º degrees and brush a loaf pan with some oil or nonstick avocado oil spray.

  2. In a large bowl, mash all but one of the bananas. Stir in the oil, maple syrup, and coconut milk. Mix well, then whisk in the ground flax. Let stand for 2 minutes.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the gluten-free flour, baking powder and sea salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well combined.

  4. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Slice the remaining banana in half length-wise and place both halves on top of the loaf. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.

  5. Let cool completely for an hour before slicing. Enjoy!
