I love banana bread. No, it is more like: I L.O.V.E. banana bread 🙂 I like trying different recipes and variations and have found a few vegan recipes that I love and make once in a while. I got so excited when I learned that the Food Allergy Freedom Collection of 9 recipes and meal plans eBooks was coming up! As you can tell, I got it right away! And here is the first recipe (selected by Alan) from one of the books. The Chocolate Chip Coconut Banana Bread with coconut flakes and pecans by The Pretty Bee!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
As you probably know, I don’t always follow the recipe and this recipe is no exception.
I have omitted the oil (not intentionally, just forgot to add it :)), replaced 3/4 of white flour with the whole wheat flour, increased the quantity of the baking soda as I had no baking powder, and had 3 bananas instead of 2. Well, I love bananas (was I a monkey in the previous life :))
The recipe is calling for 2 mini loafs. However, I was not sure if the cardboard loaf pans I had were the same size, so I made it into 3. Well… don’t do that. Two loafs would have made the nicer-shaped loafs 😉
The banana bread turned awesome (Alan approved :)). However, next time I would reduce the amount of sugar as it was too sweet to me. Also, my hubby asked me to add more pecans next time, so if you like pecans, go ahead and increase the amount 😉
Well… an hour later, there was no banana bread left 🙂 I think I have only had 2 small pieces. Lol.
