Quinoa Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread (Gluten Free!)

Mmm. Banana bread. Who doesn’t love it? I stumbled upon this recipe and just had to share it.


  • 1 cup of mashed bananas (mash them with a fork)
  • 2 organic eggs, whisk
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup organic melted organic coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 and 3/4 cups of quinoa flour
  • 3/4 tsp aluminum-free/gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tsp organic ground cinnamon
  • 100 g dark chocolate bar, break into very small chunks (Make sure it’s gluten-free if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity)


  • Combine banana, sugar, eggs, coco oil, almond milk in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix both batches of ingredients together and stir well. If you find the batter is still too dry, add a touch more almond milk. Grease a medium size loaf pan and pour mixture into it. Bake at 350F degrees for 50-55 minutes until a fork inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool for about 10 minutes before you remove it from the pan. It will rise about 2-2.5 inches.
  • Enjoy with some sunflower seed butter!
