gluten free, no “flour” banana bread

Grain_Free_Banana_Bread_001

So this is not “worlds best banana bread” BUT it is “worlds best no flour semi healthy banana bread”(including “gluten free” flour). This recipe is an adapted version of another grain free banana bread recipe we came across however, we felt it needed a little less coconut flour (which has a strong taste and texture!) and another banana, hence, the FOUR large bananas. We chose dark chocolate chips (from whole foods… about a buck more than their counterpart… but worth all 100 pennies!) and the dark chocolate chunks (chunks are bigger than chips) gave it the extra kick it needed. In any case, we hope you enjoy this almost awesome banana bread.

2 tablespoons coconut oil
4 eggs
3 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut milk
4 large ripe bananas or 5 medium bananas
1/2 bag dark chocolate chunks (whole foods) (or 1/4 cup of walnuts, dried fruit or semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Instructions

Grease a 8 1/2-by-4 1/2 inch loaf pan
