I found this spin on banana bread to be perfectly moist, hearty and filling, and with the perfect touch of chocolate-y cacao flavor to make it taste like a super indulgent dessert, but with no guilt necessary! The blend of buckwheat and almond flours in this loaf lend it a bit of protein power, too!

Throw in the fact that it slices, hold together, and stores like a dream, and I have no doubt you'll be making this bread time and time again. I know we will!
