Chunky Monkey Vegan Banana Bread

Sensitive to wheat? Dairy? Any products with animals? And LOVE sweets? This Chunky Monkey Vegan Banana Bread is created with love just for you! 

Tip: If possible buy Chocolate Dream chips...The guys who recommended them to me at Whole Foods were right about the uber-deliciousness of the dairy free, soy free, nonGMO, gluten-free chocolate chips!

This Chunky Monkey Vegan Banana Bread is adapted from a recipe at Peaceful Dumpling.

  • 2 cups rice flour blend
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1½ cups vegan chocolate chips (I used Chocolate Dream chips)

Rub coconut oil into two 8” x 4½” loaf pans. Lightly flour the pans, too. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in one large bowl.

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas with the lemon juice and coconut oil. (A potato masher is a brilliant tool for smushing bananas.)

Add the banana mixture to the flour bowl. Combine well but do not over mix. (You want a tender loaf of bread. Not a tough one.) Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick plunged into the centers comes out clean.
