Mini Choc Banana Bread

Assunta from nourishinglolaandsage.com.au came up with this recipe, and as far as baked goods go, these little rustic looking mini choc banana breads are about as nutrient-dense as they get. Loaded with Omega rich Flaxseeds, almonds, walnuts and pecans, plus Grilo Protein Powder Chocolate – they are little nutrient powerhouses!

This recipe makes 10 mini loaves and 1 large loaf. If you just want 1 regular size loaf, halve the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3 heaped tbs (about 40g) Grilo Cricket Protein Chocolate
  • 4 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup flaxseeds
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts & pecans
  • 1/2 cup psyllium husk
  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 6 Medjool dates (chopped)
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 6 ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 handful of dairy free dark choc chips

Method:

Start by preheating the oven to 180°C. Blend or whisk all wet ingredients, and add all dry ingredients to the wet mix – excluding chopped nuts, choc chips and chopped dates.

Fold through the remaining ingredients and distribute evenly into mini loaf or muffin cups.
Bake for 45 mins, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Enjoy!
