1 loaf


  • 2 medium bananas, mashed

  • 3 large eggs

  • ¼ cup almond butter, softened

  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour

  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 cup mini dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a bread pan with parchment paper, tucking the paper around the sides to keep it in place.

  2. Combine mashed bananas, eggs, almond butter, and agave nectar in a large bowl.

  3. Mix together almond flour, coconut, baking powder, and sea salt in a second bowl. Whisk almond flour mixture into egg mixture until just combined.

  4. Fold the majority of chocolate chips into the batter, reserving 1 to 2 tablespoons for the top. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spreading it out evenly. Press reserved chocolate chips into the top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes.

  6. Remove from the oven and pull on the edges of the parchment paper to remove the loaf from the pan. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Cook's Note:

You can leave out the coconut shreds if you like. You can use any type of dark chocolate chips or chocolate chunks instead of mini chocolate chips.
