NSA Banana Bread

This banana bread recipe is surprisingly sweet and delicious, despite being completely free of all added sugar! That's right, no maple syrup/agave/anything in this little recipe.

This banana bread makes for the BEST breakfast, especially when slathered with a bit of our homemade "Nutella" to pump up the chocolate flavor.

INGREDIENTS:

For the banana bread:

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 bananas. The riper, the better!
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips/chunks
For the chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1.5 cups roasted unsalted hazelnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw cacao powder

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a loaf pan with coconut oil
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder & soda, spices, stevia and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas. Add in the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well
  • Fold in the walnuts and the chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. While the banana bread is baking (and making your home smell like Martha Stewart's), make the chocolate hazelnut spread:
    • In a food processor, start processing the hazelnuts until a fine powder forms. Add in the stevia and cacao powder, and continue to process. It might take a while for the oils in the hazelnuts to release and for the mixture to become beautifully smooth. Keep at it until it looks like Nutella!
  • Once the bread is done baking, serve with a scoop of Dark Chocolate Wink and a healthy slathering of our "Nutella".
