Easy, healthy, gluten-free breakfast cheesecake! Yes, I said breakfast and cheesecake in the same sentence and in my kitchen, it’s not uncommon to have dessert for breakfast. In fact, it’s perfectly acceptable to have this healthy, lemon, blueberry cake first thing in the morning because its high in protein and full of fiber and carbs from the gluten-free oats–a perfect breakfast treat.

Healthy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

This super easy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread is extremely moist and made using only  whole food ingredients.

I shared some photos of this banana bread on my Instagram story last week and feedback I got was absolutely overwhelming so thank you for all of your kind words. I wanted to share this delicious recipe sooner but I was out of town all week in Milwaukee, Wisconsin–which by the way has some incredible food and by food, I mean CHEESE!

 


 

This banana bread is perfect in so many ways. For starters, it’s flavored with dark chocolate and who doesn’t love chocolate?

 

There’s added protein powder to kick those macros up a notch and not to mention give it a little extra sweetness without adding refined sugar! Double bonus!

 

 

 

Pro tip: If you want your taste buds to explode from a flavor overload, put Nuts ‘N More Cocoa Hazelnut Spread on your dark chocolate banana bread slice and you will not regret it!
