- If desired, pulse chocolate chips into batter.
- Scoop batter into a greased 7.5 x 3.5 inch loaf pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes.

This turned out really well! I substituted coconut oil for the shortening. I also used 4 mashed bananas. A few were on the smaller side. Did not add chocolate, but did add walnuts instead.
Fair, just not sweet enough. Used pecan pieces instead of Chocolate. Needs way more sweetener. the bananas may not have been ripe enough. would suggest letting them get very ripe. also, would recommend adding Spenda - just not sure how muck. May try butter, more ripe bananas and at least splends or possibly Stevia by the bulk which is VERY sweet - will have to figure out how much. this is a good start but needs tweaking. maybe 1/2 coconut flour, 1/2 almond flour and sweetener.
Fabulous! Moist and sweet! For those counting carbs, the true count per serving is 12.4 grams when you include the almond meal.
