Healthy Chocolate Banana Bread
Prep time: 10 minutes
Rest time: 1 hour
Bake time: 50 minutes
Total time: 2 hours
2 eggs (8 Tbsp yogurt)
180g Oat flour
60g cocoa powder (unsweetened)
260g jaggery or coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp corn starch
1 tsp vanilla extract
130g banana mashed (1 medium sized banana)
75ml vegetable oil or melted butter
100g dark chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven at 325F and line a baking pan (I've used 8" loaf pan), with butter and parchment paper.
2. In a bowl whip the egg, vanilla extract and jaggery. Add banana pieces and mash using a whisk. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl. Mix until a homogenous mixture forms. Fold half of the chocolate chips into the batter.
3. Transfer the batter to a prepared pan, top with the remaining half chocolate chips and bake for 50-55 minutes or until an inserted wooden skewer comes out clean.
4. Remove from the oven and rest for 1 hour. Serve and enjoy!
Note: The cake can be stored in an airtight container and kept refrigerated for up to 1 week.
