Kiss the Cook: Super Easy, Healthy, Homemade Chocolate Banana Bread

Looks a bit questionable, but tastes like a delicious, decadent brownie, without the gluten!


  • 3 medium bananas mashed (extra ripe, with lots of brown spots)

  • 3 eggs

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 ½ cups packed almond flour

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (or 177 for Celcius-cooking friends). Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking.

  2. Whisk mashed bananas, eggs, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined in a large bowl. Add almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt, using a wooden spoon to combine.

  3. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.

  4. Bake for 50-65 minutes or until the tester comes out almost clean.

  5. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then remove and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

  6. Cut into slices and top with your favorite butter or spread. Sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!
