Gradually stir flour into moist ingredients. Fold chocolate and lavender into batter. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle coarse sugar crystals over batter.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour.

I changed the recipe for family preferences, so used spelt flour, honey instead of sugar, oil instead of butter and shortening, and dark cocoa instead of the chocolate. WOW! This is a sophisticated banana bread! I will have to more more tomorrow!
