Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread



Sunday afternoons are made for baking some banana bread in my opinion. I love having the house smell like banana bread while we get ready for the week ahead.

We shared another loaf of this vegan chocolate banana bread with the twins and my husband for afternoon snack. 

I kept ours low sugar by not adding any sweetener. My husband said that he wishes it was sweeter though so if you have a sweet tooth and you are not making this for toddlers you should add the coconut sugar.

The best thing is this banana bread is very quick to make and only requires one bowl. I also sometimes add chocolate chips. 

I have made this banana bread 4 times now. Once using teff flour, once using only spelt and once combing different flours. It has worked every time for me so I hope it does for you if you play with the ingredients.
