Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

It's offically Fall! In my opinion, it's the best time of year. Warm baked goods, pies, bread, apple recipes, and sweaters. What's not to love? We had a weekend of apple pie baking.. The reason those aren't featured on here is simply because of one thing, the pies were nowhere near gluten-free. This week I will be featuring many of my apple and pumpkin recipes on my instagram. You can also find them in the search engine on the site! There will be new recipes up next week as well. Autumn is my favorite time to blog, so stay tuned for those.

This chocolate chip banana bread is perfect for cool fall days. The kids devoured this one. Feel free to experiment using different sweeteners. I used coconut sugar in this batch, but you can also try maple syrup, honey, xylitol, or monkfruit. Let me know how it goes!
