- 2 cups no-sugar-added chocolate chips (such as stevia- or monk fruit sweetened), divided
- 3 cups blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup arrowroot starch
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp each baking powder and baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 6 ripe bananas
- 6 tbsp ghee or extra-virgin olive oil
- 12 pitted dates
- 24 drops liquid monk fruit (TRY: NOW Real Food Organic Monk Fruit Zero-Calorie Liquid Sweetener)
- 4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 1 cup toasted, chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mist a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray. In a medium heat-proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, place one-half of chocolate chips. Cook, stirring, until chocolate chips are melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
- In a large bowl, combine almond flour, arrowroot, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a food processor, combine bananas, ghee, dates, monk fruit and vanilla; blend until smooth. Pulse in eggs just to incorporate. Add to bowl with flour mixture; stir until well combined. Fold about one-third of batter into melted chocolate. Divide remaining chocolate chips and walnuts among both batters; stir to combine.
- Drop dollops of each batter in prepared pan, alternating them. Use a knife or a skewer to swirl batters together to create a marbled effect.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, and then flip over onto rack and remove pan. Cool completely and cut into 20 slices. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator or freezer.
