chocolate chip banana bread
This is one of the few recipes on my website that is not 100% Paleo. In moderation (once or twice a month) I do consume gluten-free oat flour or oats, and for those of you that do/can, I have put just a couple of recipes throughout the site. This bread is a favorite of Mr. Charming's and I like to treat his office staff or our friends to this when we have pot-lucks.
2 Large Eggs
1/2 C. Honey or Bee Free Apple Honee
3/4 C. Unsweetened Organic Applesauce
1 1/2 Tsp. Organic Vanilla
2 Medium Over-Ripe Bananas (Mashed)
1 1/2 C. Gluten Free Oat Flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 Tsp. Sea Salt
1 1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp. Cream of Tartar
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 C. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small square cake pan or two bread loaf pans with a dairy free butter. Mix together applesauce, eggs, honey or apple honee and vanilla until smooth.
In a separate bowl mix together all dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Mix into the wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Mash bananas until creamy and mix in. Add chocolate chips and any other additions you prefer (nuts, dried fruit, etc.) and mix once more. I didn't need a hand mixer for this, as the batter was so smooth, I just used a wooden spoon and good old fashioned elbow grease.
Poor into pan or pans and bake for 30-35 or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Serve warm with cool dairy free butter. Delicious!

Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
