Chocolate Oat Flour Banana Bread

Chocolate Oat Flour Banana Bread

I’m thrilled to present this oat flour chocolate banana bread. After several weeks of testing, I can now say that the recipe is flawless. Madison, my kid, adored it! It is moister than baked oatmeal because of the oat flour, which also contains more nutrients than wheat flour. It’s also inherently gluten-free. Try my other banana bread recipes, such as my Gluten-Free Banana Nut Bread, Blueberry Banana Bread, and Banana Nut Bread, if you’re looking for something more conventional.

Banana Bread Ingredients

  • Oat Flour: To make the banana bread gluten-free and to add additional protein and fiber, I used oat flour. Make sure your oat flour is gluten-free by reading the labeling.
  • Cocoa Powder: For the greatest chocolate banana bread, stir in 1/2 cup cocoa powder.
  • The bread rises and becomes softer due to the action of baking soda and powder.
  • Salt enhances the flavor and texture while balancing the sweetness.
  • Bananas: Using a fork, mash three medium bananas to make a cup and a half of mashed bananas. For the tastiest banana bread, use really ripe bananas that are speckled with black.
  • Eggs: Two huge eggs are required.
  • Sweetener is added with maple syrup.
  • For warmth and richness, use vanilla extract.
  • Chocolate Chips: Because I used both chocolate chips and cocoa powder, this bread is actually a “double” chocolate banana bread. Lily’s semisweet chocolate chips are good since they don’t have any added sugar.

How to Make Chocolate Banana Bread

  1. Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together all five dry ingredients.
  2. Wet Ingredients: Mash the bananas, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup.
  3. Take care not to overmix as you stir the dry ingredients into the banana mixture until well blended. Add a half cup of chocolate chips and mix.
  4. Bake: Spoon mixture into a parchment paper-lined loaf pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top. Allow the pan to cool for 15 minutes before slicing, then bake for 45 to 55 minutes at 350°F, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


  • Sweetener: Use honey instead of maple syrup.
  • Desire less chocolate? Leave out the chocolate chips.
  • Chocolate Banana Muffins: Fill a muffin tray with batter, oil it, and bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. To make sure a muffin is done, insert a toothpick into the center of it.
  • If you wish to freeze a loaf for later use or to give as a gift, double the recipe.

After allowing the bread to cool, keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week or on the counter for a day. You may freeze the slices or the entire loaf for up to three months if you’d like. To make it simple to remove a slice when needed, wrap each one separately in foil or plastic wrap. To serve, either reheat the frozen slice in the microwave or defrost it in the refrigerator.

Oat Flour FAQ

Why use oat flour instead of all-purpose flour?

Oat flour is a great substitute for gluten if you have a gluten sensitivity because it is naturally gluten-free.
Compared to all-purpose flour, oat flour is higher in protein and fiber. This bread has 9.5 grams of fiber and 5.5 grams of protein per slice.

Is oat flour as good as rolled oats?

Because oats are crushed to make oat flour, it retains all of the health benefits of rolled oats. Manganese, copper, and B vitamins may be found in good amounts in oats.
