Vegan Chocolate Avocado Banana Bread

This Chocolate Avocado Banana Bread Is Next Level

Banana bread is a delicious treat on its own, but adding chocolate and avocados takes it to a whole other level. Substituting avocado for butter cuts down on saturated fat and adds extra creaminess to the batter, making this banana bread rich and soft. This recipe is so good, you'll be adding avocados to all of your baked goods!

Vegan Chocolate Avocado Banana Bread

Ingredients

  1. 2 tablespoons flax meal
  2. 1/4 cup hot water
  3. 1 cup gluten-free, all-purpose flour
  4. 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  5. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  6. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  9. 3 ripe bananas
  10. 1 ripe avocado
  11. 1 cup coconut sugar
  12. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  13. 3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips, divided
  14. Nonstick baking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 170ºC.
  2. Combine flax meal and hot water in a small bowl, and set aside.
  3. Place flour, oats, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a food processor, and process on high until fully blended and oats are the consistency of a coarse flour. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Place bananas, avocado, coconut sugar, and vanilla in processor, and puree until smooth.
  5. Add wet ingredients and flax “egg” to dry ingredients, and stir until thoroughly combined. Stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips, and pour batter into a 1 1/2 quart loaf pan that has been sprayed with non-stick baking spray. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on top of batter.
  6. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre of loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before slicing into eight pieces.
