  • Mix 2 eggs
  • V: instead of 2 eggs, add 2 tablespoons of flax seed to 6 tablespoons of water; mix and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes in the fridge

I often use the Enjoy Life brand – 40g sugar per ½ cup chocolate chips) Option: add small walnut pieces (quantity as desired; consider ½ cup – 1 cup)

Set oven to 375 F

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until ready (you can test with toothpick – it must come out clean).

    Hi, Dr. B. – do you bake this in a standard loaf pan? My daughter has fibromyalgia and loves banana bread (and chocolate), so I’m looking forward to trying this. Thanks much!

      I bake it in an oven-safe glass loaf pan. I hope you and your daughter enjoy it!
