Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Cinnamon Crumble Topping….what more could you want on a THURSDAY!?
Just look at that name and those slices. I had 3 almost rotten bananas that I couldn’t stand the thought of throwing away, so this banana bread was just waiting to be born! I was inspired by THIS recipe but had to jazz it up and make my own spin of it.
This is dairy, gluten and refined sugar free. You could make it vegan by doing a flax egg instead of the chicken eggs. But it is dense, moist, and so delicious COLD or WARM. Whatever you prefer-or maybe try both! Keep in the fridge when you’re done because it will spoil QUICKLY.
Let’s get to it!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Cinnamon Crumble Topping
(Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)
3 medium/large ripe all black bananas
1/2 cup nut butter (almond, sunflower, peanut, cashew, etc)
3 pasture-raised eggs
3 tbls honey
1 tbls melted coconut oil
Splash of vanilla extract
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 tsp of baking powder
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1/2 bag of df chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tbls coconut flour
2 tsp of cinnamon
4 tbls of grass fed butter, ghee or coconut oil COLD!!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and oil a loaf pan with coconut oil.
Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy.
Add the next 6 ingredients to the wet ingredients you just mixed together and mix again until well combined.
Fold in your chocolate chips.
Pour your banana bread mixture into the loaf pan.
Now you are going to make the cinnamon crumble topping.
Take the next 3 ingredients and mix to combine. Now take your COLD butter, coconut oil, or ghee and mix into the cinnamon mixture with your hand until it resembles lumpy wet sand.
Pour this on top of your uncooked banana bread in the loaf pan.
Now pop in your oven for 25-35 minutes or until the center comes out clean when you insert a toothpick.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes or it will fall apart. Then slice about 1 inch thick and ENJOY!
What I love about this recipe is that there is no processed or refined grains that will spike your blood sugar. Coconut flour is a high fat low carb flour that actually is high in protein-so this makes a great addition to your breakfast or snack! Coconut flour is also full of fiber which keeps your detoxification pathways open and clean. Obviously since we used no refined sugar too, you won’t have that sugar crash after eating a slice!
