I got this recipe straight from one of my favorite Paleo sites – PaleOMG, and it’s pretty much perfect.  I did think it was better the next day once it had set more.  It tastes healthy but not “too” healthy, and is very pretty and very decadent!!  Yummmmmmm!!!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 bananas)
  • 1 cup nut butter (almond butter, sunflower seed butter, etc.)
  • ¼ cup organic honey (or less depending on sweetness preference)
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon raw chia seeds
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips – I used Trader Joes chocolate chips
For the toppings
  • ½ cup rapsberries
  • 1 tablespoon organic honey
  • ½ cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips – or TJ’s chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon almond or coconut milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place bananas, nut butter, honey and eggs in a good processor and puree until smooth.
  3. Then add cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to the food processor and puree until well combined.
  4. Add mixture to a large bowl and fold in chia seeds, raspberries and chocolate chips.
  5. Pour mixture into a greased bread pan (9×5) and bake for 55-60 minutes.*
  6. Once bread is cooked through, let cool on a cooling rack.
  7. In a saucepan or in the microwave, mix together raspberries and honey until raspberries break apart.
  8. In a double boiler or in the microwave, mix together chocolate chips and almond milk until melted.
  9. Add both the raspberry mixture and melted chocolate on top of the banana bread in any design you would like! Cut and enjoy!
