Paleo Chocolate and Cinnamon Banana Bread

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"I have been baking with chocolate all week and this morning decided to make this banana bread. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but I have to say ... Amazing! You really need to try this recipe! I'd better get down stairs to hide some before it is all gone."

  1. Melt the chocolate, butter, and 1 teaspoon coconut oil in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with 1 teaspoon coconut oil.
  3. Sift coconut flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Place mashed bananas in a large bowl; fold flour mixture into bananas with a rubber spatula.
  4. Beat almond butter and eggs together in a bowl until creamy; add to banana mixture and mix well.
  5. Pour 1/2 banana mixture into prepared loaf pan; top with 2 tablespoons chocolate mixture. Use a fork to spread and swirl the chocolate mixture through the banana batter. Repeat with remaining banana batter and chocolate mixture.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown and loaf is cooked through, 50 minutes.

So delicious! Will make it again

I am not a paleo eater, but the recipe sounded yummy. I left some chocolate chips whole and it was scrumptious! I did not have coconut flour, so I just used reular flour, so mine wasn't totally ...

This is a nice addition to a gluten free/carb free dessert. I really enjoy it with strawberries. Adding a natural sweetener will improve the flavor.

5 stars for sure and so good! I didn't find it dry as some other did. The only thing is I could not get the chocolate to "swirl" in enough I guess, and there were large parts of just chocolate...
