Chocolate Cinnamon Bread

If you too have a teenage boy then you understand the struggle with keeping them fed 24/7! Sometimes I feel my full-time job is keeping him fed! In trying to limit the packaged snacks I often cook muffins, energy bites, and bread to keep on hand.

That is where my chocolate cinnamon bread was born. Usually, it’s all about the banana bread so I switched it up this time. Also, I went with whole wheat flour but you can totally make this GF with GF flour or oat flour. Not sure about almond as that would be a different ratio. Overall just a few ingredients and voila you have yourself a healthy snack.

This can also be made vegan by swapping the eggs for flax eggs. Go crazy and add your own mix-ins. Of course, I went with chocolate chips, because why not? But don’t stop there, try raisins, walnuts, pecans…

After it is cooled, I like to slice them up, wrap them individually and leave them in the fridge. This makes it easy for grab & go snacking. I highly recommend heating your slice up in the toaster and smothering the top with nut butter or any butter really! Get baking and enjoy!
