Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

INGREDIENTS

-2 cups Rolled Oats (processed or blended into a flour consistency)

-2 x Medium Bananas

-170g Greek Yogurt (I use 0% Total Greek Yogurt)

-110g Apple Sauce (I used Natural as it was all I had but using Unsweetened will lower the sugar content)

-1/2 cup Agave Nectar or Honey

-2 Eggs

-1/2 cup Cacao Powder or Dark Choc Cocoa Powder

-Dark Choc Chips (OPTIONAL but I used 2 squares of Lindt Extreme Mint Dark Choc chopped up this time just cause I LOVE mint chocolate! Obviously 70% or above would be slightly healthier. Adding a few choc chips gives it a better texture and leaves it less dry)

-Walnuts (Again totally OPTIONAL -I used around 6 or 7 whole walnuts crushed into the mixture)

METHOD (Soo Easy!!)

  • Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
  • Blend/Process oats until they are a flour-like consistency.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, leaving the walnuts & choc chips ‘til last.
  • Fold in the walnuts & choc chips to the batter.
  • Spread some coconut oil lightly in a loaf tin to prevent sticking.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin and top with choc chips and crushed walnuts.
  • Bake for 40-50mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool on a wire tray or board. (Or if you’re like me and have to try it warm then go ahead-so worth it 🙂 )
