Grain Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Grain Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Yesterday my mom turned to me and said, "Mad, these bananas are perfectly ripe. Want to freeze them for smoothies?" I practically screamed, "NO!!!" back at her, which was clearly uncalled for, but I have been craving banana bread for weeks and when the universe provides you with perfectly ripe bananas, you make banana bread.

I'm on a bit of a grain free kick lately, so I wanted to make a grain free banana bread with minimal ingredients that I could make again and again. The first round I tried to use coconut flour and was left with a gross dry glob. Luckily I had 3 more perfect bananas so on batch #2 I added more banana, more oil and swapped coconut flour for almond and the results were pretty great.

I was hoping to eat this as a mid morning snack throughout the week because lately I'm not super hungry as soon as I wake up, but by the time this is published I am sure my family and I wil l have devoured the whole loaf. SO if I can give you any advice with this bread, it would be: make two!!
