Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 bananas overly ripe
  • 1 cup coconut palm sugar or turbinano
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup nuts chopped walnuts or pecans work best

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Mash bananas in a large bowl, add coconut palm sugar and vanilla. Mix with a hand mixer, adding the water as you mix.
  • In another bowl, mix the whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and fully mix with a fork or spatula.
  • With the fork/spatula mix in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Pour the batter into a nonstick loaf pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes but start checking with a cake tester after about 50 minutes. The cake tester should come out clean and the bread should start slightly splitting on the top. Let it cool before cutting.

Notes

* You can increase the amount of nuts to 1/3 or even 1/2 depending on preference. Sometimes I like to add more just for a little change.

    Teresa, Yes, cocoa powder. Turbinado is a type of sugar and near the regular white sugar.

    Can I substitute whole wheat flour for all purpose or coconut flour?

      You can substitute whole wheat flour for all purpose flour. However, you cannot substitute whole wheat for coconut flour.
