The first time I tried banana bread was at a hotel during a mini-vacation. The taste was delectable and I couldn’t help placing orders for it every morning till my vacation came to an end. I had grass-fed butter splattered on the banana bread since I wanted it to be gluten-free.
After the trip, I started craving banana bread so badly. Everyone at home got tired of my “Oh my God, you should have had a taste of that banana bread” lines.
Finally, I decided to swing into action and satisfy my cravings. The result is this chocolate chip bread.
It is exactly what I bargained for; Satisfying, gluten-free with a flavourful taste that takes you beyond this planet.
Since I wanted this chocolate banana bread to be gluten-free, I used a natural sweetener instead of refined sugar, and grain-free flour.
Making this is simple, all you have to do is blend the ingredients, put them into a casserole dish, and cook in your instant pot.
This chocolate chip bread is also rich in protein as it contains grass-fed collagen.
