Healthy and Nutritious Chocolate Chip BANANA BREAD Recipe

Hi Everyone,

Banana Bread has been my favorite comforting dessert to make. It goes well with the morning coffee or any midday snacking. I am not very good at baking but this one is very easy and it always turns out great . And my favorite part is you can always tweak it and make it super food or/and gluten free by adding any additional seeds or powders and subbing the flour  with almond as it is in my case.  In this recipe I use only the cleanest ingredients and it’s the only baking goody that I can eat with no guilt.


-2-3 overripe organic bananas
– 1/3 cup melted organic coconut oil
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– pinch of salt
– 3/4 cups of organic coconut sugar
– 2 organic eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1table spoon chia seeds
– 1 and 1/5 cup of almond flour or regular flour
–  some walnuts
– organic dark chocolate



1. Preheat oven to 350 F
2. Mash the bananas, leaving half a banana sliced lengthwise for decorating
3. Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl and all wet ingredients + the mashed bananas in another
4. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry mix while mixing with a mixer
5. Add the walnuts and the pieces of dark chocolate
6. Pour the batter into a loaf pan covered with parchment paper
7. Decorate with the leftover banana
8. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until you pierce with a toothpick and it comes out clean, no dough is sticking on it.

Plant Based Coconut Flour Pancakes

Hi Everyone,
This plant based pancake recipe will satisfy your sweet cravings and keep you full until lunch.

1 very ripe banana smashed with a fork
1 cup coconut flour
1 cup regular flour
1 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut / almond / cashew or oat milk
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon  honey
1 teaspoon chia seeds
Dash of Himalayan salt
Fresh or frozen fruit to top them

Mix all dry ingredients and all wet ingredients in another bowl. Combine them and mix them well.
I used a spoon to pour them on a non stick pan.
Didn’t use any oil since I used a full fat coconut milk that has a good amount of oil in it. After I poured the batter I sprinkled chia seeds and put some frozen blueberries. Then flip them and cook them on the other side.

Adding the chia seeds is an easy way to sneak in some extra nutrition without changing the taste.
They are super rich in iron, omega-3, calcium, antioxidants and many more. I prefer adding them inside the pancakes rather than as a garnish. But don’t  just add them to the batter because they soak up a lot of moisture and so does the coconut flour so you won’t get the perfect consistency.

Serving suggestions:
Adding almond or peanut butter is always a nice way to add extra plant based protein
Fresh fruit always works. My favorite is banana slices, strawberry and mango.
Coconut shreds
Cacao nibs
