Chocolate Banana Bread

Everyone loves Banana Bread right? and most people like chocolate so why not have both? I’m always on the look out for a snack I can make in a big batch and portion out for the week to take to uni and banana bread is a firm favourite of mine. The recipe is also gluten free just in case your intolerant and high in protein. Now lets get baking !

  • 10g Cacao Powder

  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • Optional Sweeteners: I used FlavDrops (Could use Stevia or Date Nectar)
  • Optional extras: I used Cacao Nibs (Could use Sugar Free Chocolate Chips)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  2. Rinse and Drain your black beans.
  3. Add Bananas and Black beans to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. Add remaining ingredients (Egg white, cacao powder, protein, baking soda and sweeteners) to the blender.

  6. Pour mixture into a silicone baking mould or line a bread tin with greaseproof paper.
  7. Sprinkle your optional extras on top.
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes until a knife comes out clean.
