Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

“This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!” Wow let’s talk about how amazing this banana bread is, and what better way than to quote the one and only Gwen Stefani. But for realzzz guys this is by far the best banana bread I’ve ever had and its VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE, totally allergen friendly! For anyone with nut allergies feel to use soy milk and the brand of chocolate I like to use is Enjoy Life Foods, mainly because it’s dairy, nut, gluten and soy free, but back to the bread: So this is a perfect pre/post workout snack just as it is or with some peanut butter or cream cheese and a great quick an easy breakfast on the go. I love taking it to school because it’s full of real, good for you ingredients to help power me throughout the day when I need a little snack. I also love to have this as a dessert because after every meal I need a little something sweet, so what better way to curb your sweet tooth while kicking that chocolate craving than with a healthy little slice of heaven. I hope you all enjoy and please comment down below what your favorite way to eat banana bread is. Also, you can find me on Instagram at @bakingwithbri to see my daily eats and some quick and easy recipes that I don’t post on the blog. So don’t miss out what’s to come next because I have some amazing stuff coming! Unfortunately with school it is hard for me to post during the week so I’ll most likely be posting during the weekend either Saturday or Sunday so that gives me a chance to test recipes and get creative before sharing anything with you lovelies. Anyways, have a wonderful weekend filled with banana-chocolatey goodness!

Happy and healthy eating,

Bri
