Remember those old commercials for Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chips where the sweet, smiling mother pulls a tray of warm chocolate chips cookies from the oven, stylishly arranges them on a plate, and then happily serves them to her beautiful children? She has this look on her face like she’s got this mom thing down…and she feels good about what she just fed to her kids.
Since I do know the harm caused by the obscene amounts of sugar that kids today are eating, I’m always coming up with new, zero-cane sugar treat recipes that the kids will love. This Real Healthy Chunky Monkey Bread is my new favorite sweet indulgence to bake for a delicious after-school snack or a quick, on-the-go tasty breakfast. The dark chocolate and minimal amount of coconut sugar make this bread very mildly sweet, with the comforting flavors of banana and walnut shining through. Enjoy!
Oh and don’t forget to wear that “I’ve got this mom thing down!” look when you serve this delicious, wholesome, yummy bread 🙂
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a loaf pan with coconut oil.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot starch and baking soda. In another medium bowl combine the coconut oil, coconut sugar, mashed bananas, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, then fold in the chocolate and walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until golden on top and cooked through.
