A delicious way to replace unhealthy fats from butter with healthier fats by substituting with nut butter!


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium over-ripe mashed bananas
  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter (or other nut butter such as peanut)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup 60% cocoa bittersweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease bread pan with a little butter or cooking spray.
  2. Sift together flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a medium size bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together bananas, butter, almond butter, sugars and vanilla extract.
  4. Add eggs and milk and beat until they are incorporated.
  5. Add flour mixture and stir (or beat on lowest setting) until just combined.
  6. Stir in the cocoa disks (chocolate chips).
  7. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes or until your bread passes the toothpick test (a.k.a. no batter on toothpick when inserted into middle of the pan).
  8. When done, remove from oven and cool the pan on a wire rack.
  9. Sprinkle each slice with a pinch of sea salt before enjoying!
