  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder

  2. In a large bowl, mash the overripe bananas until nearly smooth. 
  3. Add wet ingredients to the bowl. Mix to combine. 
  4. Add dry ingredients to the bowl. Mix again to thoroughly combine. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. 
  5. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour batter into the pan and evenly spread across the base.
