Method Prep:20min › Cook:57min › Extra time:2hr10min › Ready in:3hr27min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a loaf tin with parchment, leaving an overhang on 2 sides.
Combine bananas, eggs, almond butter and butter in a blender; blend until smooth. Add coconut flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, vanilla extract and sea salt; mix well.
Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving in 15-second intervals until completely melted, 30 to 45 seconds.
Stir about 1/3 of the banana mixture into the melted chocolate until well combined.
Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Cover chocolate mixture with some of the banana mixture. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate mixture in varying spots over the banana mixture. Cover with remaining banana mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool in the loaf tin for 10 minutes; lift loaf onto a cooling rack. Cool completely before slicing, at least 2 hours.
