I’m not generally a fan of “healthy” desserts/baked goods. Mostly because I want my dessert to taste like…dessert! 😉 But sometimes I find a recipe that is both healthier and satisfies my chocolate craving. This is one of those recipes – no added sugar, perfectly moist, and (most importantly) delicious! It’s super easy without any “weird” ingredients – just almond flour and coconut flour. Make sure your bananas are very ripe, as you aren’t adding any additional sugar here, and of course, feel free to add more chocolate chips =). Enjoy!

Paleo Double Chocolate Banana Bread

2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup almond flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt
3 oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips

2. In bowl of stand mixer (or in a small bowl with a fork or potato masher), combine bananas, eggs and vanilla until smooth.
