This Espresso Chocolate Chip Banana Bread has been my morning guilty pleasure. It’s got a wonderful subtle espresso flavor, along with lots of banana and chocolate flavors as well. NOM.

It tastes like a banana chocolate chip cake.

BUT it’s made without refined flours, refined sugars or dairy.

It’s actually made with healthier ingredients such as almond flour, coconut sugar and olive oil, but you’d never know it by the taste.

I bought A LOT of instant espresso during the whole Dalgona Coffee craze that happened this past year.

I do like to use it in brownies or in chili. BUT its not something I do that often.

I also have not been making dalgona coffees all that often anymore either, so I wanted to try using it in something different.

Like in banana bread. This Espresso Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.

Ingredients needed to make this Espresso Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

  • olive oil
  • coconut sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • bananas
  • instant espresso powder
  • almond flour
  • tapioca flour
  • coconut flour
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • chocolate chips

Ingredient tips:

  1. Make sure your bananas are ripe. This makes a difference in the flavor of the banana bread overall.

2. Use a brand of espresso powder that you like. I personally like Medaglia D Oro Instant Espresso.

3. Lots of dairy-free chocolate chips, such as Enjoy life, aren’t technically Paleo. So if you are looking for a true Paleo alternative, try HU Chocolate.

4. Make sure your almond flour, tapioca flour, and coconut flour are good quality. For example, I think fine blanched almond flour works best in baking. Also, I love ALL of Anthony’s goods products and use their flours in all of my baking.

How to make healthy espresso banana bread

To start, you mix the olive oil and coconut sugar together. Then you add the eggs, vanilla, mashed bananas, and espresso powder to the bowl and mix.

In another bowl, you mix all the dry ingredients together ( the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt).

Then, you add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and mix. Then fold in some chocolate chips.

Lastly, you pour the banana bread into a pan and bake!

I like to eat this banana bread when it is still warm, but you can wait until it is cooled to eat it as well.

How to serve this Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread:

For starters, you can serve this Espresso Chocolate Chip Banana Bread all by itself, because it tastes amazing as is.

However, I love adding almond butter or sunflower seed butter to my banana bread.

I also love making french toast out of banana bread… if you haven’t tried this, you need to!

And lastly, I love eating this Paleo Banana bread with coffee or tea. NOM.
