2 bananas mashed (around 200g)

1 banana Chobani 2 % Greek yogurt (I use 6 oz plain 0% Chobani if I am out of banana)

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp almond extract (you can double the vanilla if you don’t have almond)

½ tsp kosher salt

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups white wheat flour (I use King Arthur and love it)

¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

¾ cup water

¼ cup baking Stevia or Splenda

½ cup (90 grams) dark or semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a loaf pan, or two. I used two 8×6’s. You can use any combination of pans you have, or even make this recipe into muffins.

Mash banana and mix in all other wet ingredients, then add in all dry ingredients into the same bowl. Add in chocolate chips and pour into prepared pans. Bake for around 35 minutes or until a knife poked into the center comes out clean. Try not to eat it all in one sitting. Enjoy!

*be warned, this stuff is like crack (for me at least) its so hard for me not to eat a piece after every meal! I put mine into plastic bags and into the freezer immediately after making it and just microwave a piece whenever I want one. It helps to keep it out of sight, or it’d literally be gone in one day!
