Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana bread

Chocolate peanut butter, banana bread that’s gluten free, easy to make and a healthier twist on classic banana bread. A snack that’s quite high in protein from the almond, quinoa flour, and eggs. Plus, it’s enriched with decadent chocolate and creamy peanut butter for the best flavours. The ingredient list is short and simple!

This banana breads the perfect pick me up treat for any time of day, or a satisfying breakfast option. It has it all for an easy gluten free recipe — great taste, nutritious ingredients, and a boost of protein to keep you energized.


In all of my recipes there are measurements in grams. It is way more accurate and that is why you will need a kitchen scale to make this gluten free banana bread. Here is the link to the kitchen scale that I use, but there are cheaper ones available. There are ONLY TWO types of gluten free flours in this recipe, and the eggs are needed for the binder. I have not tried this recipe with flax eggs.

Basic Steps to Gather Ingredients for this Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Make a Shopping List and write down all the ingredients you’ll need:

Ripe bananas, eggs, smooth peanut butter, almond flour, quinoa flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, apple pie spice or cinnamon powder and semi sweet chocolate chips.

Consider Specialty Stores: If your local grocery store doesn’t carry certain items like almond flour orquinoa flour, you may need to visit a store like “Choices” or “Natures Fare” that are in our area of BC. You may need to consider shopping online. I do find a lot of hard to find items on Amazon.

Remember to check for Gluten Free Labels or look for the BROW (Barley, Rye, Oats and Wheat) in the ingredients. I usually buy Hersheys chocolate chips and Natur Peanut Butter which is certified GF

Don’t forget to bring your reusable shopping bags to carry your ingredients home. If you are similar in nature to me, and you have a habit of forgetting the bags.
