How to Make the Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Set your oven to 350 degrees and begin greasing your 9×5 loaf pan while you’re waiting for the oven to get warm.
Grab a mixing bowl and combine the coconut flour with cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
Grab a separate bowl and beat your egg with vanilla extract, oil, and almond butter. Add your mashed bananas after mixing these ingredients.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ones, mix well, and then fold your chocolate chips into the batter.
Pour your batter into a pan, set it in the oven, and bake for up to 40 minutes.
Let your bread cool for about 10 minutes before you remove it from the pan and let it continue cooling on a wire rack.
Which type of oil should I use?
You can use coconut oil or vegetable oil in this recipe, whichever you prefer.
How many bananas do I need to make this bread?
You should use at least three medium bananas to prepare the Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. Make sure you’re mashing the banana into pieces before you combine it with several other ingredients.
What should I do if I don’t have baking powder?
Because baking powder is an important ingredient to use in this recipe, try to use an alternative that will work just as well. You can combine baking soda with yogurt or buttermilk to create a substitute for your baking powder.
Should I add nuts to the bread?
You don’t need to add nuts to your bread, but if you like the crunchy texture it adds to each slice, you can add chopped peanuts, walnuts, or pecans to your mixture when folding your chocolate chips into the batter.
How many slices will I get out of this bread?
When you make the Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, it makes a minimum of 10 slices and a maximum of 12 slices, but it will depend on how thick or thin you prefer to cut your slices.
How To Store Banana Bread
You can save the bread by slicing it into individual pieces, wrapping each piece in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, and placing the slices in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. If you’d like to eat them while they’re warm, you can add a slice of the banana bread to the microwave to reheat it before you eat it.
