Bacon Chocolate Banana Bread. Chocolate and bacon, does it get any better? Rich but not too sweet, and of course grain free!


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 oz melted chocolate 60% or greater
  • 2 tsp coconut oil melted
  • 1/3 cup bacon bits
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt


  • 1/4 cup bacon bits
  • 3 tbsp ghee, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp palm sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Melt chocolate and coconut oil together.
  3. Pan fry bacon bits so they are lightly crisped.
  4. Combine, banana’s, maple syrup, melted chocolate, coconut oil, bacon bits and eggs, mix with a hand mixer.
  5. Add cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt (remember the bacon adds salt, so just a pinch!).
  6. Line a greased loaf pan with parchment paper (I had a paper loaf pan that I dropped in).
  7. Spoon mixture into pan.


  1. Combine ingredients, and spoon gently over the top of the loaf batter.
  2. Bake for 50 min.
  3. Allow cooling completely before cutting.


If you are not a bacon fan, it’s okay, I understand, substitute chopped pecans or chocolate chips, but don’t forget a little more salt!
