I've been making this delicious, moist, addictive recipe for years and only recently shared it in Little Food Lovers: Healthy Snackers (a free ebook). Since I've been home a lot more these days because Vienna is off school like everyone's kids I've been baking a LOT more. I made this the other week and realized that I haven't actually shared this recipe on the blog. Yet, it's a banana bread recipe I make more than my Buckwheat Banana Bread , Earl Grey Banana Bread and the Bountiful Banana bread combined.
The reason this recipe is so beloved is that it tastes exactly like white flour banana bread -- as in it's as moist, tasty, naturally sweet and as perfect as the less healthy version your grandma probably made you when you were a kid (bless all banana-bread making grandmothers!).
This banana bread is very deserving of the title: Best Ever Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Okay, I know this is high praise but I can't help myself but get excited when I make a totally gluten-free and nut-free, nourishing recipe that everyone in my family loves (even people who don't like healthy food, haha!).
Here's the recipe video so you can follow along and then the recipe card below. Most of my videos going forward will pretty much always have a special guest as long as Vienna is out of school due to the current pandemic.
This recipe is:
Here's the recipe card.
*You can sub any other flour for the brown rice flour, except more coconut flour because then you have to change the liquid ingredients since coconut flour absorbs so much moisture.
**Can't eat bananas? You could sub 1/2 cup applesauce instead.
***You can omit the maple syrup, but add a non-dairy or water for liquid in place of the 1/4 cup syrup.
Now if you decide to add more chocolate chips than I have recommended in my recipe, no judgement here, you do you ;) It is also lovely with walnuts, but I wanted to create this as nut-free for all the kiddies who have nut allergies.
Stay healthy friends!
