Gluten Free Double Chocolate Banana Bread

This Gluten Free Double Chocolate Banana Bread is guaranteed to be a hit in your house. Dairy Free Chocolate Chunks combine with cocoa powder for the best chocolate flavor that's subtle enough for breakfast but sweet enough to make the perfect Paleo dessert.

In true female fashion, when I asked my friend, Kyra, what treat she would want for her birthday, her simple answer was "something chocolate." Since she follows paleo as well, her answer gave us endless options. I waited to make the dessert until she got into town and then I enlisted her help. Our first take on this recipe was really good. It took us and the boys about 5 minutes to demolish; however, there was a major consensus that it needed "more chocolate!"

From my initial recipe, I upped the cocoa powder and switched out cacao nibs for Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunks (dairy, nut & soy free!!). They do have some added sugar, so while they are not strict paleo, they are one of the best alternatives to traditional brand chocolate chips. These two small changes took the bread to the "double chocolate" level we had been searching for.

Before you hurry to indulge your chocolate craving, I leave you with this short quote from a very intelligent and inspiring man...
All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
