A New Take On A Classic, Banana Chocolate Bread

Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

I found THIS recipe on Pinterest via Evil Shenanigans and figured I’d give it a shot. When I say give it a shot, I barely measure correctly and just wing it. I’m not a fan of rules or specifics, so mine may have a little more nutmeg, less banana, definitely more chocolate chips, but whatever happened it worked.   

Little fun fact about me, I hate bananas the second they are fully yellow and start to develop a single brown freckle. Something about an over ripe banana makes me want to throw up. But what doesn’t make me throw up ever, is a super ripe banana, mashed up, with chocolate, and then baked into a fabulous decadent bread.  

In an effort to not eat the whole thing (because this is something I could definitely do in about 2 days flat on my own if not sooner) I was super generous and gave a third to my sister and the other third to my Mom for her to serve up to her Mahjong friends.  


  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease loaf pans
  • Cream sugar, oil and add eggs in one by one
  • Mash bananas and add in
  • Add dry ingredients
  • Toss chocolate chips in a tbsp of flour then fold into the mix
