This banana, chocolate and peanut butter bread is a little dense but still taste amazing. It’s vegan and gluten-free, and is made with gluten-free oats which are turned into a flour. It’s a little heavier as I used oats but it’s very nutritious and can even be eaten for breakfast.
Peanut butter can easily be replaced by almond butter if you prefer. If you choose to make it with peanut butter, make sure you get a good quality peanut butter. I always buy my peanut butter organic. The chocolate chips I used are organic and vegan, so dairy-free. But any good quality chocolate chips you enjoy will work.
This banana chocolate bread is a pretty healthy treat and is also great for those who work out. Peanut butter is a great source of proteins, just as the oats.
I’ll work on developing similar recipes but still enjoy to share the ones I made as they are still great!
Hope you enjoy it!
