Chocolate Raspberry Banana Protein Bread


I don’t care what people say about Monday’s, after today I love Monday’s.  I had such an amazing day filled with HOPE.


I’m going to keep this post short and sweet.  Mostly because I’m fighting off a migraine and it’s now a dull ache that I like to refer to as a migraine hangover headache.  If you follow me on snapchat, (you can find me @paleohope) you heard me venting today about the “joys” of dining out.  I got dairied.  If that’s not a word then it is now.  It is infuriating to me how you can tell people at a restaurant that you have an allergy and instead of making a new meal they pick off the offending food and give it back to you.  Most of the time I am able to figure it out before I start eating.  This was a chop salad though and the cheese was hiding. They picked most of it off but missed some and I ate it.  I don’t have anger issues but I really wanted to take my bowl back to the kitchen and chuck it right at them.  Needless to say, I was polite and just asked them to take it off my bill.  And now here I sit suffering the consequences of their actions.  They just don’t realize that even by the food just touching, people can get very sick.



Alright, so this bread…this bread! It is incredible!! My family ate the whole thing in no time flat.  I will be making it on repeat.

Swaps and Tips

  • Not a raspberry fan? Sub in dried fruit or fresh or frozen blueberries!
  • If you don’t have canned coconut milk and you tolerate dairy, you can use half and half or heavy cream.
  • Baking time varies so much from one oven to the next so check it every 5 minutes once its baked for an hour.
  • We toasted a few pieces under the broiler and it was amazing!  My girls slathered theirs with butter and let it melt right in.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 large bananas or 4 small ones, very ripe
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 Tb raw honey (maple syrup will work too!)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tb full fat coconut milk (from a can)
  • 1/2cup + 1Tb cup coconut flour
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (I use Orgain Organic Protein)
  • 1/4 cup + 1Tb cocoa powder
  • 3 Tb tapioca starch
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips (feel free to use any size)
  • 1/2 cup rough chopped fresh raspberries

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350* and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl beat with a hand mixer the bananas and eggs until they start to get creamy and slightly thickened, about 2 minutes on high.
  3. Add in the honey and coconut milk and beat until incorporated.
  4. Sift in the remaining ingredients except the chocolate and raspberries.  Stir just until combined.
  5. Fold in the raspberries and chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop batter into the loaf pan and gently smooth out.
  7. Bake for 1 hour-1 hour and 15 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  8. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting.  Good luck with this though, my husband cut into it hot out of the oven and burned his tongue.
