Who’s up for some amazing skinny Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread? It’s the time and age where everyone is looking for healthier food, healthier bakes etc. People all around the world are more aware of the harmful impacts sugar, saturated fats, excessive carbs can do on your waistline and body. Every now and then I try to incorporate healthier ingredients into my bakes. Be it the added flaxseeds, oats that are so nutritious for you or reducing the overall sugar in a dessert.
I love desserts. Period. This makes absolutely sense since I love to bake at the same time I do enjoy eating what I bake. This wasn’t the case last time. I guess in the past, they didn’t taste tooo yummy hahaa. This SKINNY double chocolate bread adapted from Joyfulhealthyeats is so amazingggg that it will be a sin to keep my mouth shut and not spread the word. It has no refine sugar added. None of those nasty stuff.. The bread’s pure sweetness comes from Honey. I used New Zealand’s Manuka Honey in this cake. It smelled wonderful as I took the bread outta the oven. The sweet smell of honey coupled with the chocolate chip and greek yogurt that helps make the cake super moist. It’s like everything was mixed together for a reason.
I love putting greek yogurt in my bakes. They help to moist the batter up. Although sometimes you need to balance the proportions if you don’t want the final product to be tooo sour. I made greek yogurt pancakes that were so fluffy, mama approves.
Adding chocolate chips is your choice. I love to mix dark choc chips ( Healthier and less sweet) into the batter as well as sprinkle some on top for the finishing look. This cake is perfect for tea parties or if you’re trying to wow your guests with something healthier.
