Chocolate Chip Banana Bread {Gluten-Free}

This chocolate chip banana bread is a game-changer. Kids love it, adults love it, everyone LOVES it! Mainly sweetened with ripe bananas, this crowd-pleasing recipe is one continually make over and over.

Brown rice flour is a whole grain flour that has a mild, nutty flavor. It’s a versatile addition or substitution to gluten-free recipes, especially baked goods.

Using a combination of brown rice flour and almond meal flour creates a pleasing texture, dense enough to stay together but light enough to melt in your mouth.

And who doesn’t love chocolate chips?! Of course, the chocolate chips are a delicious addition to the banana bread. Although, if you choose to leave them out, I believe you will still be delighted in the taste and texture of the bread.

      You can use oat flour, whole wheat flour, or regular all-purpose flour 🙂
