I am beyond excited to share this Healthy Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread recipe with you! It is so simple and easy to make and it makes for the perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert. Made with unbleached flour, bananas, coconut sugar, coconut oil, cocoa powder, and a few other simple ingredients.

Here in iso, I have been creating every variation of banana bread I can think of. Baking is my therapy and banana bread is one of my favorite recipes to customize, there are just so many different ways you can make it! I made round one of this the other day and after some tweaking yesterday, I made it perfect. This banana bread recipe is fluffy, moist, and SOOOOOOOO DELICIOUS!! My favorite way to eat it is heated up with some peanut butter and chocolate chips on it…seriously the best combo!

What makes this recipe healthier is that it is made with unbleached flour, coconut sugar (which makes it refined sugar free), coconut oil, bananas, eggs, and almond milk. These are all great ingredients!

Next, mix the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt

Keep in mind that substituting ingredients could affect the flavor and bake time! Here are my suggestions:

  • flour- replace with GF or whole wheat flour
  • coconut oil- replace with butter or any oil
  • coconut sugar- replace with any sugar
  • almond milk- replace with any milk or dairy free milk
  • eggs- replace with chia or flax eggs

    My expectations were high but it was somehow EVEN BETTER than I had expected. It’s only been out of the oven for about two hours and my family has had half the loaf. So yummy!

    I made this last night and it is so good!! I didn’t have coconut oil/coconut sugar so I substituted for vegetable oil and granulated sugar. Cooked for an hour and it turned out amazing!!
