World's Best Banana Bread. Period.

G'day everyone!  I'm SO excited to share my recipe for the WORLD'S BEST BANANA BREAD. PERIOD.

It's adapted from Bethenny Frankel's Boo Boo Banana Bread recipe.  (Boo Boo is her dog lol)

Here is the original recipe, and my adaptations are in (  )'s:
1 C Raw Sugar (I used 2 T Maple Syrup instead- it was plenty!)
1 T Butter (I used 1 T Coconut Oil)
1 C Mashed Bananas (about 2ish)
1 Egg (I used 1 T soaked Chia Seeds)
1 tsp Vanilla (I left this out because we were out!  I would have added it though)
1 C Oat Flour (I used whole wheat)
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350
Mix everything together into a bowl
Pour into a greased loaf pan
Bake 30 min with aluminum foil covering the top (loosely)
Bake 15-20 min without aluminum foil, until a knife or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean

Now for the pictures!!!

Why is it that I always cook with YouTube?  There's Bethenny!


Since I had no butter in the house.....

...or raw sugar....

... or eggs because I had hard boiled them all... (LOL)  ...and do you see?   It's a chia heart!!!

The only thing I use my broiler pan for... cooling baked goods (HA)

Yes... it was THAT awesome.  I also made these into blueberry muffins the other day by replacing the chocolate chips with frozen blueberries.  Everything else was the same, and they turned out MARVELOUSLY!  Try it... so easy.  And don't be afraid to substitute ingredients!!  I use whatever I have in the house at the time, and I have never had a dud!  Experimenting is fun in the kitchen- go for it!
