Today I am super excited to share with you a new recipe I tried the beginning of this week. Chocolate Banana Bread. Talk about YUM! My husband is not a fan of sugary treats. Why, I’m not sure. He’s crazy. But, moving on….I love anything sugary or chocolatey. If it’s both- even better. But I am learning to like non-sugary treats and snacks, too. My hubby was quite happy to try this moist, fluffy banana bread, with a hint of chocolate. He was even happier to find that it wasn’t at all sugary. Yes! Success. 😉
It rose so much, was fluffy and light, but the top was nice and crunchy. Just how we like it! Here’s the recipe….enjoy!
Chocolate Banana Bread
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup room temperature butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)
1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
Heat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9X5″ bread pan and set aside.
In a mixing bowl add the butter and sugar. On low speed, with the paddle attachment on, mix for about 5 minutes until creamy and slightly fluffy.
Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool a little.
Add the eggs, mashed bananas and Greek yogurt and mix until combined.
Slowly, on low speed, add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stop the mixer when all the flour is incorporated.
Take 1 cup of the batter out and mix it with the melted chocolate.
Pour the remaining batter into the greased bread pan.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the banana batter and, with a fork, make a couple of swirls.
Bake the banana bread in preheated oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Leave to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan before removing. Cool completely on a wire rack.

I look forward to trying this. Though, my favorite bread will always remain my Gram’s Zucchini Bread!
My son LOVES banana bread and chocolate. I never even thought of adding chocolate to the bread to make Chocolate Banana Bread! Brilliant and it looks delicious. I also like that it is made with Greek yogurt! Pinning.

Oh my gosh, who was the genius that put chocolate and banana bread together? That looks amazing! My husband’s favorite is banana bread, and mine, chocolate. Oh yeah!!
This sounds so amazing – way better than just regular banana bread 🙂
This looks really good and would be a great use for those bananas that are getting a little too ripe and nobody wants to eat them at that point.
My all-time favorite sweet bread is Hawaiian bread- a close relative to banana bread. Your chocolate banana bread looks so delish!

This looks like it would taste fabulous! Sometimes we get more bananas than we can eat in our organic share and it would be great to try something a little different from regular banana bread.
