Hi Friends!

Today, meet Rachel! If you’re looking for someone who is killing it on Instagram, she’s it. Hellooooo 81,000 followers! In fact, I think that’s where I first came across her. But she also just so happens to have a rockin’ blog where she shares delicious recipes like these Quinoa Chocolate Crunch Bars, these Crispy Baked Avocado Tacos or this 5-Minute Cinnamon Rawnola. Go visit her blog for more drool-worthy recipes. I am so excited to have her here today to share this banana bread recipe with you guys!

Hi babes! My name is Rachel and I’m the blogger behind rachLmansfield. I have a passion for sharing deliciously easy recipes made with simple ingredients that taste amazing and make you feel amazing. I don’t believe that anyone should have to drink green juice every day to feel good about themselves. Plus life is too short without chocolate, right? When I’m not blogging and Instagramming, you can find me at a barre3 class, trying some new NYC eats with my husband or soaking in a bubble bath for longer than I care to admit 🙂

I’m not someone who is keen on the idea of “titles” in the food space, but recently I have been very into the paleo lifestyle. Particularly paleo desserts. There is a paleo restaurant near my apartment in NYC called Hu Kitchen. Their mission is to get us “back to human” by eating simple and whole foods with no processed ingredients. Everything is a-m-a-z-i-n-g in there. Paleo desserts are by far my favorite because they don’t have any flour or refined sugar, which is how I typically bake anyways.

Banana bread is one of my favorite foods in the entire world, both to bake and to eat. It is so soft, moist and sweet plus it is nutritious and made with good-for-you ingredients.

I am so excited to share my Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with you today on Lindsay’s blog. I have been reading The Lean Green Bean for so so long. Way before I ever even considered starting my own blog. Lindsay is so real and such an inspiration. Not to mention you can learn a ton from her about the blogging space since she is an expert.

Not only is this Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread paleo, but it is also nut free, gluten free and grain free. You can also sub the eggs for chia or flax egg if you want to make it vegan. I personally haven’t tried this but a few of my readers have.  I love making some and having it for breakfast in the morning with some fresh fruit and a smear or nut butter or for an after dinner sweet treat (I do not go a day without dessert, ever).
