This gluten-free, vegan chocolate chip banana bread is soft, moist, and wonderfully rich – filled with dairy-free chocolate chips and packed with flavor. The recipe is simple, eggless, and can be made grain-free!
I recommend measuring the ingredients in grams on a kitchen scale.Also, watch the video for easy visual instructions.
Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
Place all dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) into a large bowl and mix with a whisk. You can also process the ingredients in a food processor (that's what I did).
In a small/medium bowl, mash the bananas really well (e.g. with a fork) and add them to the bowl (or food processor) with 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 the bread in the oven for about 40 minutes (you don't want to overbake it). Check the center with a toothpick- if it comes out dry or slightly sticky/crumbly, that's fine, just not wet.
Let the banana bread cool, slice it, and enjoy!
Video Of The Recipe
Oat flour: 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.
Granulated sweetener: You can use regular sugar, coconut sugar, or a sugar-free sweetener like Erythritol, Xylitol (birch sugar), etc. I used a sugar-free sweetener which isn't as sweet a regular sugar. So, if using regular sugar, I would recommend using less.
Make sure to use almond flour (which consists of 100% ground almonds). 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.
