Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana BreadGluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1 c amaranth flour
1/2 c buckwheat flour
1/2 c chocolate chips
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
pinch of salt
2 eggs
1/4 c agave
1/3 c coconut oil (warmed to liquid)
2 ripe bananas
1/2 c apple sauce (unsweetened)

Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a bread pan with coconut oil.

Combine the amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside.

Using a food processor blend the bananas and apple sauce until smooth.  Add in the eggs, agave and warm coconut oil and blend until combined.

Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the bread pan.

Bake for 30 minutes at sea level, or if you break the batter up into smaller loaf pans.  If you are living at altitude it will take longer; it took me about 50 minutes. Test with a knife in the center. If the knife comes out mostly dry, its done!
