3 whole Overripe Medium-sized Bananas, Peeled And Mashed
⅓ cups Canola Oil
½ cups Coconut Sugar (cane Sugar Works Also)
2 whole Large Eggs
2 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt (plain Yogurt Works Also)
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1-¼ cup Rolled Oats, Ground (or Just Over 1 Cup Oat Flour)
¾ cups Brown Rice Flour
1 Tablespoon Ground Psyllium Husk
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
½ teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoons Baking Soda
½ teaspoons Baking Powder
½ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1. Preheat oven to 375ºF (180ºC). Either grease a standard size loaf pan directly with cooking spray or oil, or line the pan with parchment paper and then spray the insides. Be sure to have at least half an inch of parchment paper hanging over the sides of the loaf pan
2. In a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas, oil, coconut sugar, eggs, yogurt, and vanilla together.
3. In another bowl, mix together the ground rolled oats (or oat flour), brown rice flour, psyllium husk, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. I like to add the flour mixture in three batches.
5. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips. I typically heat it in the microwave for about a minute and then check the chocolate. Be careful with hot bowls! If the chocolate has barely melted, continue microwaving at 15-second increments until the chips are partially melted and very soft. The chocolate doesn’t need to be saucy—just melted enough so that you can stir the chips together into a creamy consistency.
6. Pour the banana batter into the loaf pan. Add dollops of the chocolate sauce on top of the batter.
7. Using a butter knife, swirl the chocolate around so that you create a nice swirl pattern.
8. Bake the bread for about 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when you pierce through the banana bread portions. Try not to test the bread by sticking the toothpick in the chocolate portions, as the toothpick will always come out with gooey melted chocolate. Remove pan from oven.
9. Let the bread cool for at least 45 to 50 minutes before taking it out of the pan for slicing.
10. Store any leftovers in an airtight container. Refrigerate any bread that you haven’t finished in several days.
