This banana bread uses NO WHITE FLOUR and NO WHITE SUGAR (except for the sugar in the chocolate chips). Winning!
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
3 over ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup melted butter, slightly cooled
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs, whisked
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 Tbl coconut oil for the pan
Preheat oven to 375.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and walnuts.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine bananas, butter, maple syrup, vanilla and eggs.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients as well as chocolate chips.
Stir until just combined.
Lightly grease an 8 x 4 bread pan with coconut oil. (I like to use my fingers and then rub any excess into my hands and face) 🙂
Bake until golden brown and a knife comes out clean, about 45-50 minutes.
Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing.
