Chocolate Banana Bread, gluten free, no sugar added


Did you know there are 1,000 different types of bananas!

However, today, since the 1960’s, the general population consumes the Cavendish banana the most. Personally we love Plantains and baby bananas also in our household.



We use bananas as sugar and fat alternatives, especially when you aim to make a meal vegan.

The Western world was introduced to India’s sacred tree and Thailand’s delicacy, when Alexander the Great discovered them during his conquest of India in 327 B.C. Bananas were first brought to the United States in 1876, for the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition.


In 2019, I was asked to bring a treat to Thanksgiving dinner.

This treat was out of the ordinary, but so are many of my recipes!



Makes 1 loaf or 15 regular muffins and 12 mini muffins


2 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 pound banana, very ripe (approximately 4 bananas)

½ cup salted butter or ghee, melted

2 Tablespoons honey

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 eggs

2 Tablespoons Good Karma Flaxmilk or non dairy milk

Optional for most moist bread: 1 cup Good Karma Flaxmilk or non dairy milk,plus 1/2 cup more flour, double cooking time 


Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease muffin pan or cupcake tin.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips, flaxseed meal, xanthan gum and set aside. In a separate large bowl, combine the banana, butter, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, eggs, and milk. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients in one large bowl. Stir until smooth.

Pour batter into greased pan and fill each cup approximately 3/4 full, then and place in oven. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.


If you ever want to continue to question why someone with allergies is stressed out, frustrated, or scared of dining at a particular restaurant, consider why that might be.

I recently read very disturbing, well written and informative article about how the US Food and Drug Administration was founded the act of 1906. Thanks to the Poison Squad!

This article clarifies one of the many reasons someone like me with food allergies has to cook almost everything I eat from scratch. I cannot trust everyone or every food item on the market due to accidental food cross contamination or unnecessary food additives to cheapen a food item.
