I love chocolate, however due to my gut sensitivity, I can’t consume chocolate with any form of dairy in it. This means DARK chocolate for me. YUM! I eat 88-95% dark chocolate as a snack. I also make my smoothies with cacao powder in them, which is bitter by itself since it is pure chocolate superfood. The best part about eating dark chocolate, besides the antioxidants is that its hard to consume more than a few pieces, well, depending on the day.
I wanted to make a special treat for my Bible study group. So I naturally started looking for chocolate desserts that didn’t have any refined sugar. I try super duper hard to not eat much sugar in any form except brown rice syrup, but I found that unrefined coconut sugar is ok for me from time to time.
I found the recipe for Chocolate Banana Bread from The Pretty Bee. The first time I made it, I kept to the recipe, exactly as I had found it. It was really really good. In fact, my Bible study group liked it a lot. The only change I thought to make is to reduce the bananas down to 1 instead of 2. When I made the bread the first time it was super moist and that was after I had baked it for 45 minutes. So I tried it a second time with one banana and it turned out much better. I used a medium sized banana about 5-6 inches long.
I can’t wait for you to try this. This is a great dessert, packed with chocolate goodness with banana. A must have recipe for those that love chocolate and want to reduce their sugar or eat more unrefined. I hope you like this recipe as much as I did.
