Dark chocolate chip banana loaf

November 25, 2018

I just love a good banana chocolate chip loaf, I already have one that I made way back when I first started this blog so I wanted to create a new one. I ordered some Lily’s dark chocolate chips and was really impressed with the taste of them and the fact they did not upset my stomach (something I deal with when trying sugar-free products) check your local Whole Foods store if you have trouble finding them, I ordered from this Canadian website that carries a lot of hard to find products. This dark chocolate chip banana loaf was delicious and only 4 smart points per serving on WW freestyle.

    Are the Lily’s chips less points+ than regular mini chips?

    WOW!! This is delicious. My 18 year old son loves Banana Bread and thought this was out of this world. I didn’t have any chocolate morsels and it was still delicious. A definite keeper!

    Just took this out the oven. Took a little longer in my oven. Soooo moist and yummy. I used a brown sugar substitute, and it is so good. And so easy to make. Yum!!

    But isn’t 30 grams of carbs considered a lot for one piece?

      If you are following a low carb lifestyle maybe… Did you know there is approx 27g of carbs in one med-large banana? Probably don’t think much of it when eating one as a zero point food right? Depends if you are watching your carbs or not, but between the bananas, flour and sugar it adds up

    Is this made with self rising flour? Or regular flour

      I always use regular all-purpose flour unless I am making the two-ingredient dough

    I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I ended up with very dense bread. I’ll definitely try again, though, because the taste is amazing!

      My loaves are usually denser than most with the ingredients used, that said this loaf was not overly dense, I am so glad you still enjoyed it 🙂
