  • 2 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 c gluten free flour I used Pamela's Artisan Flour

  • 1/3 c cocoa powder

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c semi sweet chocolate chips milk chocolate chips work well too


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a loaf pan. 

  2. (I mash my bananas using my stand mixer first)

  3. Mixed mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, Greek yogurt and vanilla together.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix flour, xantham gum (if needed), cocoa powder, sugar,baking soda, salt and baking powder.

Recipe Notes

I use my stand mixer for this recipe.  I find mixing the ingredients well helps combine the flour better and prevents chunks of flour in the bread. i also use Pamela's Artisan flour because xantham gum is sometimes not my friend, and this flour uses guar gum.
