For the banana bread

4 medium bananas (about 1 pound/455 grams)

4 large eggs

¼ cup (½ stick/50 grams) unsalted grass-fed butter, melted

½ cup (125 grams) almond butter

½ cup (60 grams) coconut flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of fine-grain sea salt

For the swirl

2 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

½ cup (3½ ounces/100 grams) Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips

1 tablespoon organic honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-by-5-inch (23-by-12-cm) metal loaf pan and line it with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the bananas, eggs, butter, and almond butter in a food processor or mixing bowl and mix until the ingredients are well blended. Add the coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and salt and continue to mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  3. In a double boiler over medium-low heat, mix together the swirl ingredients. Heat, stirring often, until the chocolate has melted.
  4. Pour the bread batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly. As soon as you pour the batter, pour the chocolate swirl directly on top and use a knife to swirl the chocolate throughout the loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before serving.
