Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Melt butter and set aside to cool.
  3. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan with 1 tbsp butter and flour the pan either with all-purpose flour or potato starch if you're doing the gluten-free variant.
  4. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the all-purpose flour OR the gluten-free flour mix with the rest of the dry ingredients.
  5. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Do not puree; some lumps are good.
  6. Beat the eggs slightly and add to the bananas. Add the rest of the wet ingredients, including the cooled melted butter and the chocolate chips. Mix thoroughly.
  7. Make a well in the bowl with the dry mix and pour the wet mix in, folding gently with a spatula until dry mix is just incorporated. Do not overmix.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350° for about 55-60 minutes or until nicely browned on top and a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Remove pan from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then remove loaf from pan and let cool on a wire rack.
Recipe Notes

If you can't find almond meal in the market, you can place about a cup of slivered almonds in a food processor and let it run for about 3-5 minutes until it becomes soft crumbs.
