This Paleo Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is so fudgy and delicious. Rich chocolate banana flavor and naturally sweetened only with banana and dairy free, paleo compliant chocolate chips. Perfect for a paleo baked good breakfast, snack, or dessert!
You can never go wrong with anything that’s double chocolate chip! Am I right?!
This Paleo Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, believe it or not, was a total accident recipe. My son has been asking daily during quarantine to bake something “all by myself.” Most days I cringe at this request because I know it means a whole lotta mess for me to clean up and a whole lotta wasted ingredients.
BUT on this specific afternoon, I gave in and let him suit up! I got out some staples and he started throwing things together. Long story short, this magical loaf came out of the oven and i was scrambling to remember how much of what was thrown in.
We remade it later that week and then remade it again a couple weeks later. Delicious every time!
Rich enough for dessert but healthy enough for breakfast and did I mention it takes only minutes to whip up and get in the oven?? This will quickly become a family banana bread favorite!

You can of course use cocoa powder in place of cacao, however, I like to use cacao whenever and wherever I can for the many health benefits.
Just to name a few, these include:

Can I substitute almond flour for other flour like sunflower seed flour?
Cate & Co. Kitchen says
Hi Lily! Unfortunately I have never tested it out so I can't guarantee the results, but I do know in general you can typically substitute sunflower seed flour for almond flour 1:1. If you try it out I would love to hear how it turns out! - Emilee
