Strawberry Dole Whip


Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

As many of you are getting to know Kailee has a huge love for anything blueberries, Kristopher not so much (I can sneak them into some foods and he does not really mind, but will not really eat them plain, he will eat them in bread as long as there are, as he calls it, 'no chunks'). Kristopher loves chocolate, anything chocolate, and since dark chocolate is extremely good for you, I really do not mind giving him some once in awhile. In order to make the bread a little bit 'healthier' for him, I have added almost everything I did in my Fluffy Blueberry Bread except the blueberries.

Make these into 4 mini loafs or into 24-48 muffin breads! The choice is yours, chose wisely!! =]]

You Will Need: 

2 Cups Organic All-Purpose Flour (or whole wheat)
1 tsp Baking Powder (Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 tsp Baking Soda (Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Organic Cinnamon
2 Organic Pasture Raised Eggs, room temp
1/2 Cup Organic Butter, room temp
1/4 Cup Organic Raw Milk, room temp
2 Organic Bananas, brown spots and soft
1 tsp Salt (Real Salt Brand)
1 Cup Organic Coconut Sugar (or reg)
1-1 1/2 Cups Organic Soy-Free Chocolate Chips

Cream the softened butter together with the sugar (coconut sugar or regular organic sugar work well here) 

Add eggs, vanilla, and milk, and cream together

Add the ripened bananas and mix until there is chunks but not HUGE ones (I love looking at the bread and seeing all the small chunks of banana)

Add dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips and whisk well, until combined. I did not have my kitchen aid mixer so I used an good old hand mixer and whisk

Fold in chocolate chips

In your buttered dish add 3/4's full batter. Oven at 350 bake 35-40 minutes or toothpick insert is clean, take out of oven and cool 7 minutes, remove from pan and continue to cool until fully cooled

There you go! Cut and enjoy plain or warmed with butter. Pop remaining loaves in freeze, freeze completely, bag in zip-locks and label. These little suckers go fast so be ready to have NOTHING left! These are amazing little gifts for the upcoming Holiday's.
