So, who has made my famous banana bread?? And did you love it? It’s my go-to baked dish when I’m asked to bring breakfast or dessert to a party! Not only is it super filling, but it also uses few ingredients, and on the whole it’s pretty healthy! Well, I decided to take the recipe one step further and add a little cocoa to the mix. The result? Chocolate-y goodness.
What You Will Need:
3 medium-to-large very ripe bananas
1/2 cup dairy-free butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 cup GLUTEN FREE all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
OPTIONAL: Walnuts, Dairy-free Chocolate Chips
What You Will Do:
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas.
Add melted butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla, and mix!
Separately, combine all-purpose four, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
Pour your dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until all ingredients are combined.
Optional: add walnuts or dairy-free chocolate chips!
Pour batter into a 9×5″ bread pan that is coated in olive oil or olive oil spray.
Cook for ~40 minutes! When finished, let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
