One Bowl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I make this one bowl chocolate chip banana bread once a week.  It’s so easy and quick to whip up and it makes the perfect after school snack or a healthy breakfast on the go.  Over the years, I’ve tweaked so many different recipes and finally, this version has evolved into my own.   What I like best about this one is that I’ve given it a healthy twist while still keeping it decadent and delicious!  My advice is to make two at a time and freeze one so you have a treat on hand when you’re craving something sweet.


  • 1 cup organic sprouted spelt flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 to 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray (I like this one)
  • In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients
  • Add in wet ingredients
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • Pour into loaf pan
  • Cover loosely with aluminum foil
  • Bake for 30 minutes
  • Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes
  • Let cool for 10 minutes
  • Invert loaf pan onto cooling rack and let cool another 5 to 10 minutes
  • Cut into slices and serve
