Chocolate Chip Almond Banana Bread

After several delightfully tasty experiments, I came up with my new favourite banana bread:

Recipe: Chocolate Chip Almond Banana Bread

Made with freshly-ground whole almonds, natural sugars, vanilla, nutmeg, and dark chocolate (to mention just a few of the stellar ingredients) it's incredibly flavourful, moist, and heathy too. The almonds give the bread a satisfying bite, and lend their own natural sweetness. Speaking of sweet, I've tweaked the sugar (agave nectar) till it hit that wonderful sweet but not-too-sweet balance, which allows all the flavours and textures to shine. This recipe is dairy optional, wheat and gluten-free. Use high quality dark chocolate chips for a supremely delicious treat. I'm not one to push brands, but Ghirardelli 60% cocoa bittersweet chocolate chips are pretty awesome!

Happy healthy baking :-)

Best banana bread ever

This is hands down the best banana bread I've ever tasted. It's not even fair to compare it to other banana breads because the ground almonds and dark chocolate chips take it to another level. Bravo Patty!

Thank you Crispin! You're

Thank you Crispin! You're the best. Seeing that you've partaken in 3 of these loaves, you'd be the authority. Now I know why there's been an influx of over-ripe bananas in our kitchen lately... :-)
