The food industry has been intentional in making you believe that a good tasting banana bread has to be made from refined white flour. They’ve made you think that you will be deprived of nutrients and/or pleasure if grains aren’t included in your diet. The truth is that all of these statements are myths, falling very far from the realm of reality. The real reality is that this Creamy Chocolate Grain-free Banana Bread is a nutritious breakfast or snack option, as it is rich in nutrients and free of gluten, grains and added sugar (except for the dark chocolate chips). Dive into this world of deliciousness and nutrition that is absolutely bursting with moistness and banana-chocolaty goodness.
This grain-free banana bread is an amazing breakfast option or post-workout snack because it is loaded with an awesome balance of proteins, healthy fats, and carbohydrates. Throwing this on your breakfast plate is the key to helping ensure that your blood sugar levels remain stable throughout the whole day, helping to prevent a crash that can lead to fatigue and sugar cravings. And if you can tolerate dairy, this could also be the perfect post-recovery snack – just subsitute the plant-based protein powder with the quick-releasing protein from grass-fed whey to helps optimize muscle growth/synthesis after a workout.
