Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread

Who doesn’t like a nice slice of homemade banana bread?  Just the smell of it baking makes my mouth water.  I have several healthy banana bread recipes on my blog already, but I had never combined banana, chocolate and coconut together.  I finally combined those flavors making this chocolate coconut banana bread.  This healthy chocolate coconut  banana bread is oil free and has very little added maple syrup.  I use 3 VERY ripe bananas which helped add a natural sweetness to this.  Needless to say, ours was gone in just 2 days!

Using the extra rip bananas helped keep this bread nice and moist without the addition of oil.  This super easy banana bread recipe is vegan and gluten free.  You could even make a double batch and freeze some.  It freezes very well.  I hope you enjoy it.
