My youngest inspired me to bake this bread. Initially, I was just going to make Banana Bread.  Then she suggests taking the bread up a notch.  So that’s just what we did.

For this recipe, you will need…..

3 organic ripe banana’s

2 C organic all- purpose flour

1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips

3/4 C organic unsweetened applesauce

3/4 C organic cane sugar

1/2 C organic creamy peanut butter

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line your loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a food processor or large bowl, mix together the bananas, peanut butter, applesauce and vanilla. Add flour mixture to banana mixture and mix just until combined. Add in 3/4 C chocolate chips and pulse to evenly distribute or fold them in if you are not using a food processor.
  4. Pour the batter into the loaf pan. Add the remaining 1/4 C chocolate chips across the top. Bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove to cool completely on a cooling rack.image
