(i Can't Believe It's Gluten Free) Chocolate Banana Bread


This recipe was inspired by another Aunt of mine who has switched to a cleaner way of eating and told me of a delicious bread she made using Teff flour. Inspired by her results and new found happiness, I decided to make my own version of a healthy (ish) and gluten free chocolate banana bread. This banana bread is a delicious treat with a nice fluffy texture and complex chocolate-banana flavour thanks to the Teff flour. I say healthy-ish because I've added chocolate chips but this can be made healthier by omitting the chocolate chips and reducing the maple syrup to 1/2 cup...but THAT's no fun!

What you will need

1/2 cup Teff Flour

1/2 cup Brown Rice Flour

2 pinches Kosher Salt

3 tablespoons Gluten Free Cocoa

1 teaspoon Gluten Free Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

3 Bananas, very ripe and mashed

2 Eggs

1/2 cup Salted Butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/2 teaspoon Almond Extract

2/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup

1/2 cup Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter Chips, or a mix of both

1 handful Pepitas

1/2 teaspoon Salted Butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon Pure Maple Syrup

1 pinch Kosher Salt
