Grain-Free Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Bread

I swear to you, this banana bread is just as good (if not better) than regular flour banana bread. The flavor is pure and delicious. I swapped out refined sugar and flour for a hazelnut flour (which you can buy or make on your own!) and raw honey. Please note, you can cut out the vanilla extract and whole milk in this recipe to make it paleo. I love vanilla extract for flavor, but you are your own boss! Do what you want.

Oh one more tip: this tastes amazing when frozen, and when paired with a chocolate hazelnut spread, which you can make on your own or buy!
