Sophia's Choc Banana Bread Will Wow Your Friends

By Sophia Hatzis | Digital Content Producer at Wild Women On Top

I love to bake for my besties. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside when the people I love enjoy my food. 

So, when I brought in my banana bread for the team to try at Wild Women HQ, I felt super warm and fuzzy - because they loved it! 

This no-fuss recipe couldn't be easier and more delicious. It's the perfect treat to impress your friends and it goes perfectly with a cuppa on a clifftop after a long hike. Plus, it's vegan and can be altered to be gluten-free. 

Ingredients:

  • 4 large ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 1 cup plain flour (you can use Gluten Free if you like)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar (you can use coconut sugar)
  • ½ cup nut butter (I use smooth almond butter but you could use unsalted peanut butter or cashew butter)
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons vanilla essence
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ block of 85% dark chocolate (roughly chopped)
  • 1 handful of walnuts (roughly chopped)

Method:

  1. Line a loaf tin with baking paper and preheat the oven at 180 degrees celcius.
  2. Combine mashed bananas, nut butter, brown sugar, vanilla essence, plain flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
  3. Mix until batter is combined and flour is fully incorporated.
  4. Add in roughly chopped chocolate and walnuts. Stir to combine.
  5. Spoon batter into loaf tin and place in the oven for 45-50 minutes. If a skewer comes out gooey, keep it in for a little longer.

Enjoy with a nice cuppa on a clifftop!

I went through a bit of an online shopping spree during COVID. My online shopping history has been jaded, and I’ve made some seriously bad (and funny) purchases. But this time, I struck gold!

Diet and exercise. That was the prescription for ‘health’ I grew up with. Broccoli and burpees. Cutting carbs and doing crunches. Spinach and spin classes. It wasn’t until after I was diagnosed with depression that I realised this health equation was missing a key ingredient.
