Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread


Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread

Ingredients:

3/4 cup spelt flour
3/4 cup oat flour
1 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
 2 eggs
2 ripe bananas mashed, about 1 cup
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

To make:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Butter and flour a loaf pan. I used spelt flour.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Using a spatula, gently mix well to incorporate all ingredients. 
Using a hand mixer, blend butter in a medium bowl. 
Add eggs and blend to incorporate.
Lastly, add Greek yogurt and mashed banana. Blend until all ingredients are combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
Fold in nuts and chocolate chips and pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a toothpick/skewer comes out dry.
Leave in pan for 10 minutes, then remove and cool on a wired rack covered with parchment.

This recipe was adapted from one found in a Martha Stewart magazine. Couldn't tell you which one... My mom has a million magazines and is constantly cutting out recipes for me. All I can say is that this bread is delicious!
