So it only took a week for the virtuous post-New Year’s “oh I’m not eating anything sweet for, like, a month…if not longer” to wear off.
But, in my defence, I am still shunning processed sugary junk and, when I fancy something sweet, making my own.
Which is how this banana bread came about.
I defy anyone to sit with a steaming mug of coffee/Choffy/tea on a sunny Saturday morning and not want something sweet and cake-like to go with it.
And, also in my defence (I’m building quite a case here – guilty conscience much?!), there are no additional sweeteners – just bananas and a few chocolate chips.
In conclusion, your honour, we’re all human with human weaknesses.
If I happen to eat three slices of this loaf in one sitting. Well, that just makes me more human than the rest of you.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread (makes one loaf)
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2 over ripe bananas
- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- Mash the bananas. Beat together with the butter, eggs and vanilla.
- Add the salt.
- Sieve the coconut flour into a separate bowl. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry until it forms a semi-runny batter.
- Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture into a greased 9in x 5in loaf tin.
- Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Let cool before removing from pan and slicing.
