Flourless & Refined Sugar Free Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Bread
Looking for a healthy (but sweet!) way to start the new year? Here’s a recipe for you! This Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Bread has no flour or refined sugar in it (depending on what chocolate chips you use) so it won’t spoil that diet you just started. It’s moist, studded with chocolate, and full of flavor–everything you want (minus the bad stuff) that’s typically in sweet bread like this.
How’s everyone’s 2021 looking so far? So thankful for fresh starts and new beginnings. And I think we can all agree we’re ready for that this year–in many areas of our lives. Maybe you started this new year with intentions of working out more, or eating less junk: that’s awesome! This is a recipe that you can turn to then when you’re feeling a sweet tooth craving coming on.
I’ve mentioned before but my boys are big chocolate/peanut butter fans. Throw some banana in the mix and they’re all over it. Actually the other day my oldest, Ryder, asked me to make a dessert that had all three of those flavors in it. Success.
This is one of those breads where you can taste each one of the flavors. The chocolate is rich and pronounced but so is the banana. There are three whole bananas in here, after all. The banana not only adds to the flavor, but it makes this bread super moist. And as far as the peanut butter goes, there’s some in the bread as well as swirled on top. (Although, my youngest slathered additional pb on his slice!) The three flavors work beautifully together. And to up the chocolate flavor (and texture) a little bit more, I added chocolate chips to the batter and on top. You can use whatever chocolate you have–even the sugar free kind if you’re watching your sugar. Yum.
Mitch got me a Vitamix for my birthday this year so I used that to mix all the ingredients together–it couldn’t have been easier. So if you have a blender or food processor, you can do the same, otherwise just mix in a bowl by hand.
So whether you’re looking for a healthier alternative for a sweet bread, or you simply love this flavor combination, go ahead and make some! It’s perfect with an afternoon cuppa Joe. 😉
