Choc Chip Banana & Zucchini Bread.

Just as most of my recipes are created, this one happened when I had 2 really ripe bananas & a zucchini that needed using up. I added chocolate because they make everything better! They're totally optional but highly advisable.

I like mine slightly undercooked so that it’s a little gooey. It's better to wait until it's cooled to slice it because it sets better but it's so delicious when it’s still warm & the chocolate is melted!




- 1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour

- 1/2 cup coconut sugar

- 3 tsp baking powder

- 2 tsp cinnamon

- 100g block of choc (or choc chips)

- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


- Preheat your oven to 180C

- Roughly chop up the chocolate into smallish chunks

- In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients (leave some of the choc to top it with)

- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients

- Pour into a lined or well greased loaf tin

- Sprinkle over the leftover chocolate

- Optional: Sprinkle over some roughly chopped almonds

- Leave the house in order to stop you from eating it all!
