This double chocolate banana bread is the ultimate comfort food. It is irresistible, fudgy, sweet because of those deliciously tasty bananas and all in all it is great for any kid big or small 😛
It’s also dead easy to make, and gluten-free to boot. The bananas and almond flour keep it nice and moist for days – although, let’s be real, there’s no way this deliciousness will last that long. I give it two hours, tops.
Before sharing the recipe, lets go through some basics
How long do you bake banana bread?
For perfectly baked and in the end moist banana bread I would definitely recommend baking it at 355 ºF (180 ºC) for about 45 minutes to an hour. The best way to judge the doneness of the banana bread is to insert a toothpick or skewer into the middle and when it comes out clean or with only a few crumbs attached, you know it’s done.
How do you keep banana bread moist?
The almond & oat flour, bananas and cashew butter will ensure for your banana bread to keep moist for 3-4 days, but…
It is important for you to follow the recipe to ensure that texture for longer and as long as you follow the recipe, you don’t need to worry about dry banana bread. However, I recommend keeping the banana bread in cooled in a closed container because it can rotten outside if it is too hot, so better for you to place it in the fridge 🙂
