Live a Little...Eat Some Chocolate

Hello dear friends.  Thank you all so very much for the wonderful comments and support from the last post.  It really does mean a lot to me and I also it helps some others out as well :) So THANK YOU!

However, we need to get back to the regularly scheduled posts...FOOD!  Banana bread may be my favorite type of sweet bread to make especially PaleOMG Coffee Cake Banana Bread...omg. I decided to play around in the kitchen this morning and since I was in a chocolaty mood I added some cocoa to the mix and the Cocoa Banana Bread was born.

Cocoa Banana Bread
{Grain Free, Gluten Free, Sugar Free}

2 large bananas, peeled and mashed

2 large eggs

1/3 c. almond butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 c. coconut flour

2 Tb. cocoa powder

1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

pinch of salt

2 TB- 1/4 c. chocolate chips or chopped chocolate of choice (optional)*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, oil loaf pan and cover with parchments paper.  Combine in a medium sized bowl the mashed bananas, eggs, almond butter, and vanilla and mix together until combined.  Add in the remaining ingredients besides chocolate (if using).  Pour into loaf pan and bake for 25 minutes.  Place on counter to cool. Slice and serve!

*Chocolate is tricky here.  There are many options, if you are not worried about dairy or sugar get the normal chocolate chips or bars. There are some sugar free chocolates as well as dairy free, so it's up to you!  However, this will affect sugar content if you choose to use regular chocolate chips ;)

Nom on my friends.
