Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I recently read an article about how so many banana bread recipes call for the use of so much sugar when bananas are naturally sweet.  After I got to thinking about this, I realized how true this was so I wanted to try a recipe without sugar.  It was definitely different at first, but in the end I loved it.  I made this recipe into 5 mini loaf pans and sent them to Jackson’s school for his snack one day (theirs did not have chocolate chips as I was trying to make it healthier for the kids).  The kids at school loved it and I am sure none of them realized that it didn’t contain sugar.  As my family moves towards more unprocessed food, this would be a great addition to any breakfast.  You could add things to it or make it into muffins as well! Enjoy!

    That is so true! The bananas should be plenty sweet on their own. I cannot wait to try this recipe and I also love that you used whole wheat flour!
