If you're familiar with my blog, you know I'm a sucker for banana bread. I also love chocolate and coconut together. When I was at the spice market the other day, I picked up some roasted cacao and figured that I would try it in a new banana bread recipe. And OMG is this a good one! I seriously ate half the loaf in a day. And I didn't even feel bad about it because this recipe is sugar and grain free! Yummy!

4 very ripe bananas, mashed

1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 oz. roasted cacao
1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9 x 5 loaf pan.
2. In large bowl, combine bananas, eggs, oil, butter, and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
3. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to wet ingredients and mix well.
4. Pour batter into greased pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle evenly with cacao.
