Gluten-Free Moist Choc Chip Banana Bread

Rated as 4.18 out of 5 Stars

"Yeah, this is really moist and hard to tell it's gluten-free for sure! Perfect with coffee or as a dessert, this banana bread will melt in your mouth. Be sure to use mini chocolate chips, as the big ones just sink to the bottom while baking."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.

  3. Whisk flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and baking soda together in a bowl. Add flour mixture to applesauce mixture and stir until just combined. Fold chocolate chips and walnuts into batter. Spoon batter into the prepared loaf pan.
