Sometimes, Things are Just Meant to Be…

A couple of Sunday mornings ago, I was getting ready for church when hunger pangs stopped me dead in my tracks. After a quick scan of the fridge, I realized that I had nothing prepared to eat for breakfast before I headed out of the door.

So, I had two choices. I could cook up a little something for myself. Or, I could whip of a batch of something for my church family to enjoy during our refreshment time.

With one eye on the kitchen clock, and the other scanning the kitchen for sundries, I envisioned a tasty baked good that I could create in one hour tops. So, I grabbed the cassava flour and almond flour. Then, I went to look for canned or frozen fruit to make something really similar to my strawberry banana date breakfast cake.

Except, I had the bananas. But not the strawberries or the dates. Or any other fruit. So, when my eye caught the bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, I just rolled with it…

How to Make Grain Free Skillet Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I used the base for my strawberry banana date breakfast cake, changing around a few things to use what I had on hand. I mashed the bananas in the bottom of my KitchenAid mixing bowl. Next, I poured almond flour, cassava flour, sugar, eggs, butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and baking soda into the bowl. I mixed it on medium speed for about 90 seconds. Then, I hand-mixed the chocolate chips into the bowl:

Next, I poured it into a greased 12-inch cast iron skillet, and baked it for 40 minutes:

I covered it with foil, and took it to church. At refreshment time, I was validated by more than a few compliments from my church family. So, I am declaring this gluten free banana bread recipe adaptation a winner, y’all!! Enjoy it with others when you can…
