Protein Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe (Gluten Free): Fall is here!

Protein Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe (Gluten Free): Fall is here!

Wow.

That’s a mouthful!

Summer is officially over (crying inside) and I had to get my mind off the fact that it won’t be daisy duke season anymore, so I decided it was about time I shared with you guys my secret recipe I have teased on Instagram for the past year and perfect start to fall season!

I actually stumbled upon creating this recipe after I asked Garrett what types of baked goods he liked, since my typical brownie recipes he felt were too “guilty.” And when he didn’t eat the chocolate chunk divine bliss, well, you know who was left to do the job ;) I needed to indulge in baked goods as i pleased because I fully cannot and will-not get rid of sweets in my household, but I needed to know EXACTLY what ingredients were inside the baked goods. No preservatives, nothing coming out of packaged Betty Crocker recipes (yes, i know they’re good. But not good for you!) and an ingredient list I am proud of. Garrett’s preferences were peanut butter cookies and banana bread. And because he is literally obsessed with healthy ingredients, I did my best to use quality and guilt-free ingredients without compensating the mouth watering flavors.


Originally, I made this banana bread not gluten free, and the recipe definitely turns out slightly better when using reg flour since I’m a texture person, but I have dedicated to my Gluten Free diet, especially in baked goods. If you aren’t on the GF bandwagon, I recommend making this recipe with wheat flour, oat flour or black beans I hear are great but haven’t tried yet. From this diet change though, I am less tired, my rock hard bloat disappeared, my skin cleared up and so many more benefits. I recommend getting a blood test from an allergist if you think you may be GF!

PRO TIP: When using coconut flour as I call for in this recipe, the thicker your batter, the better, so it cooks through.
