Loving Lately: Grain-Free Banana Chocolate Chunk Bread

Life, lately you ask?

Hectic. Dynamic. Incredibly fulfilling.

Ahh the plight of the working gal in her mid-twenties.


im pretty into moons these days. anything lunar, really. i cant tell if its like a feminist thing or a trendy gothy thing or in some way related to my general love and appreciation of all things astrological….but i just thought you should know since we’re getting reacquainted. 😉 

Other things I’m into lately…

things im loving lately
  • new boxy topshop blazer i bought on sale for $40. woot.
  • feel good guru and generally all things raw and vegetable
  • my pendleton docs
  • GIRLS season 2
  • the new tegan and sara album (whatevvvver guys, i know its pop music but i like pop music and i think its good. im also pretty into taylor swift right now. moving on…)
  • Solar Raw cheesy kale chips. How did I just discover these? I’m an addict on the road to rock bottom and there’s no turning back.

And (of course) the most important thing I’m loving lately… this delicious grain-free totally guiltless banana bread. Honestly no amount of busy-lady life could keep me from sharing this recipe with you because I am totally IN LOVE. It’s moist and delicious and not at all like the dense gluten-free baked goods I’m used to. PERFECTION.

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 bananas (mashed)
  • 2 tbsp honey or a pinch of stevia
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 white tbsp chia seeds (mix with 3 tbsp water and allow to sit for 5 min or so to form a gel)
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chunks (use a cut up chocolate bar if you like)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • dash of cinnamon


  1. Blend eggs, mashed bananas and coconut oil together, plus honey if using.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients and then combine with wet ingredients.
  3. Pour into greased bread pan and bake at 350F for 45 minutes, or until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.

The result will be a very soft and cake-like banana bread. Ideal for breakfast, snacks or any other time you please!
