  • 1.5 cups gluten-free flour, I use Trader Joe's or Bob's Red Mill 1:1
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 bananas typically this yields ~ 1.5 cups of mashed banana
  • 1 egg large
  • 2 tbsp honey, softened
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 90 grams chocolate chips, I use Enjoy Life mini chips (this is 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp)
  • VANILLA Infused Sugar


Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a large loaf pan with parchment paper.

Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Combine wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.

Quickly mix in the vinegar.

Add chocolate chips at the very end and quickly stir in.

Pour the batter into your lined loaf pan, then sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly along the top of the loaf and sprinkle with VANILLA Infused Sugar.

Bake for 45-50 mins or until a toothpick placed into the center of the load comes out cleanly (chocolate excluded!).
