Does anyone else have a horrible tendency to over-buy bananas on their weekly grocery run? I even try to make a mental note “Ansley, remember you have like 10 bananas so you don’t need to buy more at the store”. Yet somehow a bunch tends to find its way into my cart every.single.week. I have this thought that it’s just my subconscious craving banana bread.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Of course my stash inevitably becomes brown and mushy by the next week - enter banana bread, solving the world’s problems. I should probably start calling it hero bread or something since it does kind of save us all. Like the times when I bring it into work on Monday and the office devours it in 5 minutes, thank you banana bread for making Monday worthwhile.

Healthy Banana Bread

This is probably only a me-problem, but I also have been known for hording nut butters. I have an entire shelf in my pantry dedicated to the deliciousness and I have no shame. I throw some in to this weekly banana bread recipe partly because it is a killer counterpart to those bananas but also to show my husband that yes, we do need more nut butter.

Banana Bread with Cashew Butter

I used Georgia Grinders cashew butter in this particular recipe but any nut butter will do. I won’t even go into how chocolate chips found their way into this recipe, I’ll just leave you with my life motto - always add chocolate. Now, let’s go make some banana bread!!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. In a large bowl, mix bananas, eggs, nut butter, and vanilla until well mixed (I find using a hand mixer is best for this so the bananas are thoroughly mashed).

  3. In a separate bowl, combine coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk lightly until combined.

  4. Slowly fold the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients (with the bananas and eggs) - use a rubber spatula for this and DO NOT use a hand mixer.

  5. Next, fold in the chocolate chips.

  6. Spoon batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden on top (you should be able to stick a knife into the center of the loaf and it come out clean).
