Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

First things first, let’s just get one thing straight: eating chocolate for breakfast is perfectly acceptable when there’s fruit mixed in. Like this Double Chocolate Banana Bread. Totally breakfast food. Second thing: sometimes one type of chocolate just isn’t enough. For these special occasions, you’ve gotta go double or go home. Just trust me on this one.

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Not sure what your freezer looks like, but mine is filled with frozen bananas. If you don’t freeze bananas that are slightly too ripe to eat, what the heck are you doing?! Throw ’em in the freezer for smoothies and banana bread. And then just add chocolate. x2. We’ve been over this already. Are you convinced yet?

1 cup granulated sugar
8 T unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 T milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 T cocoa powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease or line a loaf pan.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk, vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa powder. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients.
Pour batter into pan and sprinkle with chocolate chunks. Bake approximate 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    I have so many bananas in my freezer for banana bread. I’ll have to give this recipe a try. I obviously love chocolate too so that’s a double bonus! (ha, like my lame pun 🙂 )
