Banana Bread / Cake with Chocolate Chunks


A cross between my banana bread and cake recipes with chocolate added - I'm totally addicted.

What you need:

3 ripe bananas

3 eggs (lightly whisked)

1/4 cup oil

1/3 cup rice malt syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 ½ cups almond flour

¼ cup ground flaxseed or LSA

1/4 cup brown rice flour

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp baking soda

Pinch of salt

1/3 cup dark chocolate, roughly chopped

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 160°C

In a large mixing bowl combine dry ingredients (except chocolate) and set aside

In another mixing bowl mash bananas, add remaining wet ingredients and mix well

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients bowl and combine thoroughly

Add chocolate and gently stir through

Pour mixture into a greased tin (I used a square baking tin - 21cm * 20cm)

Place into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until cooked through (a skewer inserted into the middle should come out clean when its cooked)

Let it sit and cool before cutting
