Breakfast is my most challenging meal of the day! For years (even recently) I would skip breakfast altogether. I know, I know, “It’s the most important meal of the day”. But, for some reason I usually wake up with no appetite! (trust me, it’s about the ONLY time of day that I don’t feel like eating!) The problem with this is that I am typically famished by 10am! You can guess what happens next- I am out running errands and am tempted to grab something, anything quick! When you are out and about, a quick snack is often limited to fast food or unhealthy, pre-packaged foods. When I started Clean Eating, I knew that this was one bad habit I was going to have to kick! I started my search for breakfast foods that I would find appealing at 6am when my sweet angels awake. I started to think…”What am I always in the mood to eat?” The answer came swift and clear: Chocolate of course!! 🙂 This is a recipe that I worked to perfect and it tastes great! Not only is it packed with chocolately goodness- it’s actually really healthy too!!! This one is for all of you Chocolate Lovers! You can eat Clean and still have your chocolate fix too!!
4 Ripe bananas
1/2 Cup coconut flour
1/4 Cup ground flax
2 Tbsp Melted coconut oil
1/2 Tsp salt
1/2 Tsp Baking soda
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/4 Cup Date butter
1/4 Cup chopped walnuts
3/4 Cup cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all dry ingredients (except nuts) together until fully combined. In food processor mix together all wet ingredients. Once wet ingredients are combined, add in the dry ingredients and mix once more. Stir in the walnut and pour into a bread pan. Bake for 45 mins to 1 hour (Depending on how big your loaf pan is) at 350F.
***TIP*** Let this sit for at least 20 minutes to cool. It may seem a little dough-y when it first comes out of the oven but firms up as it cools down.
I hope you love this bread as much as I do!
