The Very Best Coconut Flour Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips Recipe

This coconut flour banana bread is one of those recipes that is super quick to mix up. You will not need an electric mixer, only a couple of bowls.

Why is coconut flour an important ingredient in gluten free diet

First, coconut flour is probably one of the most budget-friendly gluten-free flours you will find. Since coconut flour is super absorbent, you don’t need as much because it will absorb a large amount of liquids. In addition, this is a grain-free flour.

Coconut flour is versatile, rich in fiber and MCTs, and good for digestion and heart health. This delicious naturally gluten-free flour is a smart choice when choosing gluten-free flour alternatives. Here are couple of recipes you may enjoy, the  Blueberry Maple Coconut Flour Pancakes and the Healthy Gluten-Free No Bake Blondies. Both recipes are made with coconut flour.

What makes this grain-free banana bread so good!

I wanted to keep this coconut flour banana bread moist without adding almond flour, butter or oil. To do this, I used light sour cream. You can use full-fat if you like, but you can’t use fat-free sour cream. 

The sour cream combined with eggs and mashed bananas keeps this chocolate chip banana bread super moist.

recipe details

This gluten-free banana bread uses only 1/2 cup of coconut flour for this recipe. To get a perfect crumb, I added 1/3 of a cup of cassava flour.

Cassava flour, also known as Polvilho, is made from grated dried cassava root and is not a grain. So if you want to keep this banana bread, grain-free cassava flour is your best choice. If you don’t have cassava flour, you can use millet or sweet sorghum flour…both are gluten-free grains.

Chocolate and bananas go hand in hand. Besides, who doesn’t love chocolate? However, you can replace the chocolate chips with roughly chopped gluten-free chocolate bar to give you larger chunks of chocolate throughout the banana bread. Or, add chopped nuts, dried fruit or sliced banana.
