After our rather underwhelming experience with the Blueberry Pancakes from The Paleo Bread Bible, I was a little scared to try again. I mean, I hate wasting monies, and once I fall into a baking rut, it can sometimes prove difficult to pull myself out. But I didn’t want to write the cookbook off entirely based on just one recipe, so. Banana Bread it was. Chocolate Banana Bread, to be exact.

And you know what? It wasn’t that bad! The batter’s super-easy to pull together, and the bread smells heavenly while it’s baking. It’s got almond flour, coconut flour, cacao nibs, and walnuts (which, strangely, are mentioned in the instructions but not the ingredients list. Yeah.) This time I used flax eggs (3 TBS hot water + 1 TBS ground flax seeds; whisk and let sit for ten minutes) instead of Ener-G, and it seemed to get the job done.

A small portion of the loaf stuck to the pan; naturally, it broke in half when I finally managed to dislodge it, but otherwise it turned out okay. Even though it doesn’t rise (the batter fills up most of a loaf pan), the bread is soft and pillowy and moist, just like regular banana bread. Plus the coconut powder gives it an interesting depth of flavor. The cacao nibs are pretty bangin’ too.

I’m happy to say that I might actually make this again. Yay!

    Yum! I would make it again. The parts that stick to the pan are always my favorite parts to eat anyway. Assuming I can get them out haha
