Gluten-free chocolate chip banana bread is HUGE now, honey. And this specific little magnificence is elegant. Almond and oat flour, and coconut oil provide the moistness you want and the flavour you want. This recipe is nearer to a snacking cake than a bread—if that doesn’t thrill you, we don’t know what is going to.
This recipe took place after making an attempt a chunk of banana bread at my native cafe and noticing how completely . . . nicely, not good it was. I stomped house after stated unhealthy piece of banana bread, went straight to the notes on my cellphone (a literal catastrophe full of recipe checks, to-do lists from 2015, and eating places to attempt), and wrote this recipe.
When making this, I knew I needed to develop a bakery-style, cakey loaf that makes you’re feeling such as you’re consuming one thing much more decadent than only a slice of banana bread. Mainly, if I confirmed you a sliding scale with bread on one finish and cake on the opposite, this one would fall extra on the cake facet of the spectrum. This loaf cake is fluffy and moist (sorry, I do know, the m-word) with out being too heavy or dense. I actually really feel an extreme quantity of pleasure about this cake as a result of it accomplishes precisely what I supposed it to.–Samah Dada
