Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Today is a very special day – and special days call for cake.  Now I’m not a frosted layered sponge cake kind of girl – I’ve never really been a fan of sponge cakes, nor a ton of frosting.  So instead, I like to opt for something a little more rustic, like a quick bread :)

What’s the occasion? Exactly one year ago today, a beautiful baby girl joined our family by coming out into the world  – she was full of spunk back then, is just as spirited today, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We had a quiet birthday, celebrating with a couple new toys (the xylophone was a huge hit), and skyping with friends and family.  And of course, some cake.  It was really a perfect birthday, even if there wasn’t a huge party with kids everywhere – there will be other years for that, years she will remember.  This time, it was for us to celebrate a year of family life together – all our lives have been incredibly transformed by the presence of this little person who shares her days with us, and it’s been such an incredible journey so far.  I can’t wait to see what the future holds in store.

Yield: 1 loaf

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Gluten Free


  • 200g GF flour mix
  • 100g raw sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 150g bananas (two bananas)
  • 50g applesauce
  • 100g melted butter
  • handful or so chocolate chips
  • butter for greasing the pan


  1. Preheat an oven to 180C (350F). Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl - the GF flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the eggs, bananas, and applesauce, stirring until blended.  While stirring, slowly pour in the melted butter (this is to prevent the melted butter from cooking the eggs).
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, add in the chocolate chips, and stir with a spatula until all is combined.
  4. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 45-60 min, or until passes a clean knife test. Enjoy!
