Whole Wheat Banana Bread
I grew up on this recipe, my mom use to make banana nut bread all the time. We use to joke that she would make it for us and would always find some reason to give one loaf away! We always wanted it to ourselves, but she would some how find someone who needed the loaf, one was just not enough for us :)
I loved her recipe, but it was loaded with a lot of table sugar & white flour, so I was determined to bring some health back into this recipe and make it guilt free. Boy, is it delicious!
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup unsalted organic butter brought to room temperature
3 extremely ripe bananas
2 tbsp Enjoy Life chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. Grease a 9 X 5 X 3 loaf pan with coconut oil. I take a paper towel and get coconut oil on it and grease it that way. Then take a few pinches of coconut sugar and shake around the tin, so it coats it thinly and set aside.
2. In a mixer, for example a Kitchen Aid, add 1/2 cup butter and coconut sugar and cream it well. In a sifter, add flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and sift into a medium size bowl. Then in another medium size bowl, peel the bananas and mash them well.
3. Once the sugar and butter are creamed well, spatula the sides to make sure it is all down in the bowl, then add in the two eggs on medium speed and then vanilla, cream that together for a minute or two. Then put the guard shield on the mixer and gradually add in the sifted dry ingredients until well combined
4. Pour batter into the loaf pan and take the spatula to even out the top. Put in the oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes and then take out and set the pan on cutting board or cooling rack still in the tin, while you heat up the chocolate drizzle. Put 2 tbsp of Enjoy Life chocolate chips into a small microwave bowl, heat in 30 second increments and stir until melted. Then with a spoon drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the loaf and then sprinkle some extra chocolate chips on top of the chocolate drizzle to stick :)
