Chocolate Chip Chocolate Banana Bread

My friend recently had a surprise baby shower at work, and I knew I wanted to make her favorite banana bread. BUT I wanted to up the chocolate game with this bread, so I experimented with subbing some of the flour with cocoa powder. Lord have mercy, this was yummy!

Chocolate Chip Chocolate Banana Bread


3-4 mashed bananas
2 eggs
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup of AP flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup whole milk
1 tsp vanilla or almond (next time) extract
sprinkle of salt in the batter
1/2 bag of chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, combine mashed bananas, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Once the butter has cooled, whisk into the banana mixture.

In a larger bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Gently fold dry ingredients into banana mixture until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into a buttered loaf pan or muffin tins. Bake for about 50 minutes. If you use a toothpick or knife to check if it is ready, but there will probably be some melted chocolate and banana on them.
