Banana bread sweetened with bits of chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
  • 1-1/2 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 oz. (approx. 8 pcs) chocolate covered macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 c. ripe, mashed bananas
  • ⅓ - ½ c. sugar
  • ⅓ c. oil or coconut oil (melted and cooled)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Whisk together flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Set aside ¼ c. chopped candy for later to sprinkle on the top before baking, or mix in all of the chopped chocolate candies until well coated with flour.
  2. In another large bowl, mix together bananas, sugar, oil and egg. Add dry ingredients. Mix until just blended. Pour into a large, greased 9" x 5" loaf pan. Top with any reserved chopped candy. Bake 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. (1/2 c. mini chocolate chips + ½ c. finely chopped macadamia nuts may be substituted for the chocolate covered macadamia nuts if desired.)
