Banana Pecan Cacao Loaf [oil-free, dairy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free option]

3 very ripe bananas (can be frozen and defrosted)
1/2 cup unsweetened apple butter
5 large, gooey Medjool dates, pitted
1/2 T vanilla extract
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup almond flour
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a blender, combine the bananas, apple butter, dates, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, and salt. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix to combine well--but do not overmix. Add the chopped pecans and chocolate chips (if using) and fold in. Pour mixture into a loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean and the top can be lightly pressed and bounce back, it is ready to remove from the oven. Cool before cutting and serving. Can be store in the refrigerator for 5 days in an airtight container or wrapped well and frozen.
