Chocolate Banana Bread
Fairly cheap

Delicious spin on banana bread. Top with chocolate chips if you can't get enough chocolate. These would also be tasty as muffins.

  2. In another bowl combineĀ cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stir together, batter should be lumpy (don't over mix).

Recipe notes

Bananas have been historically low in salicylates (0.34mg/kg Wood et al. 2011, 0mg/kg Swain et al. 1985, 0.05mg/kg Robertson & Karmode 1981), but have also tested as a medium-level salicylate (5.39mg/kg. Malakar et al. 2017, includes free plus bound salicylic acid).

I react to bananas when they are not ripe, and tolerate them much better if they are cooked. When eating them raw, I try to limit them to half a banana. Banana bread is one of my go-to ways I incorporate bananas into my diet.

I personally can't eat fortified flour with vitamin B's added, so I always use an unfortified wheat flour - usually Bob's Red Mill, Arrowhead, or King Arthur Mill.
