The Pin Junkie: Chocolate Banana Bread

Chocolate Banana Bread

Chocolate Banana Bread recipe
Chocolate Banana Bread

Making banana bread is a great way to use up over ripe bananas.  I have an old family recipe for banana bread, but when I saw this one with chocolate, I knew I had to try it.  In my mind chocolate makes everything just a little bit better and I wasn't disappointed.  This banana bread is moist almost like a cake.   The chocolate isn't too sweet, and reminds me of dark chocolate.  The mellow sweetness of the bananas pairs beautifully with the chocolate.  This bread didn't last long, we ate it for breakfast, snacks, and desert. 

The original recipe is at Whisk & Knife.  It was delicious the way it was, but I'm wondering if chocolate chips or nuts would be good to add.  I'll have to make it again to find out!

If you decide to try this recipe yourself, please not that the recipe says to heat the oven to 180 Celsius.  So make sure you use the equivalent which is 350 Fahrenheit.

  3. This looks amazing!! I love bananas but unfortunately my husband does not and my son is allergic so they always seem to spoil before I can use them all, but this is a perfect way to use them up. I'll definitely be pinning this to save for later. Thanks!

  9. This just came out of the oven, and it's fabulous! I threw in a handful of choc. chips just because more choc is always better :)

    I don't bake my banana bread in a loaf pan though. No matter what I do, the edges burn before the middle is done. I poured the batter into a 9x9 square pan, and baked it for 26-27 min, and it came out perfect.

    I found you through your link at the Hope Studios Tutorial Tues.

    1. I agree - more chocolate is better! I think chocolate chips would be fantastic! This banana bread is so moist, you could bake it and serve it as a cake. I'm so glad you tried it and liked it Jill. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. This looks way better than the banana bread that I bought yesterday from Starbucks. I really should have just made my own.

  16. Visiting from Foodie Friday. People say that everything's better with bacon. While I don't disagree, I believe chocolate is better. Especially with bananas ;-)

  26. I love banana bread & have never made chocolate banana bread. But, no one else eats banana in my house. Maybe I can make one & freeze it by the slice. Thanks for sharing & linking up @ DearCreatives.com Theresa PS Happy 4th!
