  • 1 stick

  • 1/2 c
    Truvia Splenda Blend
  • 2
    Flax Eggs
  • 3
    overripe bananas, mashed

    pure vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

  5. 5. Add the chocolate chips to the banana bread batter
  6. 6. Pour the batter into a parchment lined loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean.
  7. 7. Let the loaf cool for an hour before slicing.
