Super Clean Chocolate Banana Loaf

This one is SO simple.  I whip it up when I feel like a nutritious, no added sweetener treat that I can happily down for breakfast.  It was my sister’s request for breastfeeding fuel before we left New York this week and then we got home and I wanted some too.  So I blended some up last night, literally in the time is took to make my tea.  It’s an easy one but it tastes amazing and is low in sugar but high in goodness!

Confession the above picture is just plain banana bread because I made this on a whim and didn’t take a pretty picture before demolishing it with my tea… but they quick iPhone snap is below!

Ingredients

  • 4 bananas ripe
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup ground oats (oat flour)
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch pink salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • Then just stir in the whole oats, slice the last banana and stir that in along with the pumpkin seeds and raisins. It’s that easy!
  • Pour it all into a lined loaf tin and bake at 350F for about 35-40 minutes or until it’s just springy to the touch and not ‘wobbly’!
  • Let it cool (or don’t, you know, do you really think I did?!) then spread it with nut butter, add banana slices, sprinkle on cacao nibs and enjoy!
