gf coconut-banana, walnut and chocolate chip bread- yes you read that correct

Okay, so I have a massive sweet tooth and would prefer to eat sweets at all seven meals. That is 100% the truth. And yes, seven. I truly eat about 5-7 meals a day. As David has come to realize, I have something in common with our farm animals. I am a grazer. It’s not that I don’t like to sit down and eat a big meal but my body runs better when it’s fueled regularly. So I have snacks on me at all times and never leave the house without stuffing something into my purse for later.

However, we all know that if I ate sweets at all seven meals I would have a little problem on my hands. One that involves my weight, so I try my best to limit my sweets to one or two meals a day. I woke this morning with a major craving for some banana bread but since the real stuff gives me a bit of a belly ache, I whipped up the GF (gluten-free) version but added a few extras for taste.

I usually cruise the internet looking for the best baking recipes I can find and always end up altering them to my taste and my stomachs liking (gluten-free). This one was no different.

And here it is.

What’s in it:

2 cups GF flour

1 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt

4 eggs

3-4 bananas, mashed

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup chocolate chips

How to make it:

1. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. In larger bowl, whisk together the eggs, bananas, sugar, applesauce, coconut flakes, coconut oil, vanilla, nuts, and chocolate chips. Stir in the dry ingredients.

2. Pour into a buttered loaf pan of some sorts. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50-60 minutes.

3. Eat

    This looks so good. And it just so happens I have some ripening bananas that need to be used.

    Great receipe and looks delicious. I love the Ball jar of milk – cute:) I am going to have to take this receipe for a test run – minus the coconut – my spouse is not a big fan. Thanks for sharing and making me hungry again.

      Thank you! You could definitely do this without the coconut although the coconut oil does add a lot of moisture.
      Happy baking!

    Mmmm! My husband has a huge sweet tooth, but he is almost 100% faithful to his chocolate chip cookie recipe, which he bakes about once every ten days (or whenever the cookie jar runs to empty =). I have more of a salty tooth–popcorn is my snack of choice.

      I’ve been told to stop baking 🙂 but I don’t think that will happen. I really enjoy your blog! Thanks for checking out mine. ~Amanda
