Instructions

  • Watch the video (scroll down a bit) to see all instruction steps.
  • Preheat oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Put all dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into a bowl and mix with a whisk. You can also process the ingredients in a food processor (that's what I did).
  • In a small bowl, mash the bananas really well with a fork and add them to the bowl (or food processor) where you put the dry ingredients.
  • Add the plant-based milk, vinegar, and vanilla extract and whisk again or use the pulse function of your food processor until just combined (don't overmix).
  • Finally, add the chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
  • Pour the batter into the baking pan and add more chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake in the oven for about 35-40 minutes. You don't want to overbake the banana bread but make sure the center isn't liquid anymore when you make a test with a toothpick. It's fine if it's slightly sticky/crumbly but shouldn't be wet.
  • Let the banana bread cool and cut into slices. Enjoy!

Notes

  • *To make your own oat flour, simply process oats in a blender or electric coffee/spice grinder. You can try using buckwheat flour for a grain-free version. Also, regular flour or spelt flour (for a non-gluten-free version) should work well in this recipe (I haven't tried it myself though).
  • **Granulated sweetener: You can use regular sugar, Erythritol, Xylitol (birch sugar), coconut sugar etc.
  • ***Make sure to use almond flour (which consists of 100% ground almonds) and not almond meal. Any other ground nuts can be used instead of almond flour. For a nut-free version, you can use 75 grams of ground shredded unsweetened coconut.
