Chocolate Chip Banana Bread gluten-free

This is my favorite gluten-free banana bread recipe ever! Not just because it's so damn good, but my kids make crazy noises when the I even mention it. This has fast become a staple in our house. I recommend making 2 loaves, a double batch. And I thought of leaving the chocolate chips out, but then id it really banana bread without them? I think not! 

Dry ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 1 and 1/4 cup almond meal (or ground almonds)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  •  1/8 tsp nutmeg (or less)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or try 1/2 cup and 10 drops stevia liquid)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Wet ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 very ripe bananas (mushy is best, they are sweeter)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup- 1 cup good quality chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Makes 1 loaf. 
Heat an oven to 340F.

Butter pan or line with parchment paper for easy bread removal. 
Mix the wet ingredients in a big bowl, put aside. In a medium sized bowl, mix the dry ingredients.

Slowly mix the flour mix into the bowl with the wet ingredients. 

Add in chips and raisins if using. Mix until just combined. 

Bake for approximately 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Push all the children away from the bread so they don't burn themselfves by diving right in. Let cool or a few minutes, butter slices. Yumm!
