Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread (Blender Recipe)
Hi friends! Sharing something sweet with you guys today. I’ve been scrolling through my old photos and came across this gluten free chocolate chip banana bread made with oat flour. I remember making this right before heading into my staff relief rotations during my dietetic internship. Safe to say that was a VERY stressful time in my life, and some comforting banana bread was much needed!
I know some people may be thinking that RDs are immune to emotional eating, but that simply isn’t true. We are only human, and I don’t believe in being too hard on yourself when it comes to food (being super regimented and “perfect” is never the answer!) That said, we all need treats now and then. If said treat can be made at home with decent ingredients, then even better :).
