175•c for 35-40min

Ingredients: 

  • 2 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 tbsp ground vanilla
  • 6 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (GF)
  • 1 tbsp baking soda (GF)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 heaping tbsp honey (local!!)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt (himalayan!)
  • 1 bar 90% chocolate
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao nibs 
  • 2-3 over ripe bananas
  • 1 cup flour (GF)
  • 2 eggs (VEGAN-replace with 2 flax seed eggs)

VEGAN: Flax Seed Egg

  • 1 TBSP ground flax seed
  • 2TBSP warm water
    • Mix and let it sit for 5 min. Then add to the recipe like the regular egg

Start by mashing the bananas. Warm the coconut oil a bit so you can easily mash through it. Add them together. Separately add all the dry ingredients (except for the chocolate + cacao nibs) together and make sure everything is evenly mixed through.

Add the banana, the coco oil, the almond milk, honey and the eggs, and mix all together (if you have a serious sweet-tooth, you are going to want to add 1.5 more tbsp of honey). Cut the chocolate into very small chunks and add it into the well mixed mixture with the cacao nibs. Coconut oil your loaf pan and throw the mixture in there! It should be spread evenly. Put it in the oven for approximately 35 min or until top is golden brown and when a toothpick comes out clean!

GF: If you don't know already, almost all baking soda and baking powder contain gluten) please therefore make sure you are buying a gluten free version- it must state it on the package. I like to use a mix of gluten free flours because the taste ends up being more balanced. You can make it yourself by adding equal parts chic-pea flour, almond flour, brown-rice flour, millet flour, coconut flour, OR you can just buy an already prepared mixed GF flour ;) If you are wondering where to buy gluten free products, you will always have luck at your local organic/bio grocery.

 

ENJOY! (and please do let me know how it works out for you!)
