Healthy Choc-Nut Banana Bread (sugar & gluten free)

Healthy Choc-Nut Banana Bread (sugar & gluten free)

I have been trying to perfect a healthy banana bread without protein powder in it for the longest time! All the recipes out there either contain too much refined flour, sugar or fat! So I wanted to find a happy medium. 

If you have ever experimented with banana bread you will know how often you just end up with a dense, uncooked centre, a loaf that didn't rise nicely, or a bread that is just downright strange! Especially if you would like a blender to be involved. 

Anyway, I honestly think I have cracked it. Only about 6 attempts later haha. This bread is moist and flavoursome, packed with goodness and fiber, and just completely wholesome.
