  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp coconut oil melted

  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a a bread pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash your banana.
  • Add all ingredients, other than dark chocolate chips, into the bowl and mix well.

Notes

Bananas– An overripe banana is the based of this recipe! A ripe banana will work just as well, just make sure you mash it well and add ½ tsp more of maple syrup to sweeten it.
Oat Flour- I used oats for this recipe instead of flour. While oat flour would work just as well – a money saving type is to put your whole oats into a food processor and pulse until it is fine. I also let some on the chunkier side for added texture – you choice!
Chia egg– You may use flax egg as well, or you may use a real egg if you are not vegan.
Coconut Oil- You may also use canola oil or butter.
Protein Powder- I used Livbody Cake Batter protein powder, but you may use any type you like! I would recommend using vanilla or chocolate, but do note that if you do use chocolate, it will be much more fudgey.
Maple Syrup- A natural sweetener, feel free to use honey instead if you are not vegan.
Cinnamon- If you do not have cinnamon, you may use allspice.
Cocoa Powder– Sorry, no subs for this!
Almond Milk – Any plant based milk will work. Use vanilla or original (sweetened or unsweetened!).
Dark Chocolate Chips – Optional to make them more fudgy!
