Gluten-Free Blueberry Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

In searching for healthier baking options, I stumbled upon this recipe.
I don't have celiacs, but after doing a month long no flour challenge I wanted to test out a gluten free baked good.
This bread is awesome. Definitely does double duty as a dessert treat as well!
1.5C hazelnut meal
2 whole eggs + 3 egg whites, lightly whisked
1/4C canola oil
3/4 brown sugar
2 bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1C frozen blueberries (they float better in the batter than fresh ones)
1/2C dark chocolate chunks

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a loaf pan with butter or non stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl (I used my KitchenAid), whisk together all ingredients except for the blueberries and chocolate chunks.
  4. Whisk until just combined.
  5. Gently fold in blueberries and chocolate chunks.
  6. Pour batter into loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 50 minutes or until top is no longer wet and an inserted toothpick comes out clean from the middle.
  8. Allow to cool before removing from the pan and slicing.
  9. Enjoy!
