Gooey Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

With everything going on I wanted to make something that warms my heart and belly. This is definitely a favorite comfort snack in our household.  Spread a spoonful of nut butter and dig in.

Using an all purpose gluten free flour and not because I’m gluten free. I chose this particular flour because the ingredients are clean including garbanzo flour, potato starch, fava bean flour to name a few which makes it a good source of fiber and tons of nutrients. I tend to stay away from using refined white flour due to being highly processed and stripped away of its nutrients value.  

Now to be clear this is not a gluten free recipe, I also added organic wheat bran which contains gluten but also contains a good amount of fiber and nutrients. 

The ingredients are flexible, feel free to use any flour you desire. Another swap can be a nut butter instead of butter. 

Coconut sugar was used to make this refined sugar free but remember coconut sugar is still a sugar so if you need to watch your blood sugar level I would suggest using monk fruit.

Total recipe contains a good amount of protein, healthy fats and carbs/fiber.  All three food groups so this is what I like to call balance. #keepitsimple
