Wet Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed in 6 tbsp water set aside for 10 minutes before using
  • 3 overripe Bananas
  • 1/3 cup extra virigin olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1.5 cups gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup Coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8x4 inch loaf pan, set aside.
  • In one medium size bowl, mash the ripe bananas. Once mashed, mix in all wet ingredients together.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients EXCEPT the cocoa powder. Leave some chocolate chips to sprinkle on top.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and fold together until combined.
  • In a small mixing bowl, remove 1 cup of the batter from the large mixing bowl. Add the cocoa powder to this batter (this is to create the chocolate swirl).
  • Pour the non cocoa powder mixture into the loaf pan. Then pour the chocolate mixture on top and swirl with a tooth pick. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until golden outside and moist inside. Tooth pick should come out clean.
