Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Blog

August 26, 2017

Double Chocolate Banana Bread that is packed with banana chunks, lots of dark chocolate and is so easy to make! This is truly a must-make banana bread recipe.

From this recipe, I changed things up a bit.   For starters, I used raw 100% organic CACAO powder which is so good for you!  Did you know that it’s known to be one of the superfoods that can be a factor for LONGEVITY?  What?!?!  Chocolates can prolong life?  YES!!!!  Provided you pick the raw kind, and not the processed, artificially-flavored and sweetened one.   For the bananas, I used the really ripe ones like those which have dark spots on its peel.  That gives the bread a naturally sweet taste and it helps make it a bit more moist too.   You don’t want dry banana breads, do you?

For the sweetener, you may pick whatever is your preference.  I usually go half pure maple and half honey.  But if you only either of which, then go for it.  And if you wish for it to be sweeter, then add a couple more tablespoons.  I usually keep my banana bread not too sweet since I sometimes top it with peanut butter when I eat it.  Peanut butter + banana + chocolate just totally makes sense! Ha!

This banana bread is so kids-friendly without having to think of the sugar rush!  To sum it up, it:
