Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Gluten free, refined sugar free, healthy

I was always impartial to banana bread. It got a big "meh" from me. There are so many other desserts to be had so I always overlooked it! Until I started making it myself and playing around with different recipes. And when you factor in the chocolate chips, the added peanut butter and homemade granola topping on this recipe, you have yourself a winner! Not going to lie, I even add another swipe of almond butter on top of it! Can't stop the almond butter addiction!

I love this recipe because there is no sugar added, no butter, and it's totally gluten-free! It's made with coconut flour which is high in fiber and protein. Even for the granola topping, you can make it using gluten-free oats, use a store bought one, or omit it completely. Looking to make this vegan? Try substituting the eggs for flax eggs. I haven't tried it but I imagine it would work! I adapted this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen to make it peanut buttery and delicious!  I'm so happy with how it turned out. I hope you try it out! I mean, I know you have a few overly ripe bananas on your counter. And the best part about this... all you need is one bowl! YES. Fewer dishes and less time to throw together. It's an all-around winner. Seriously who has time to do more dishes...  I sometimes avoid recipes just because they call for more than one mixing bowl. Dead serious. Anyways, check out the recipe below! You'll love it. Breakfast, snack, before bed. Just do it. Then let me know how much you love it!
