Double Chocolate Banana Bread from Smitten Kitchen

I am a huge fan of Deb from Smitten Kitchen and love to make her recipes because they always turn out and taste fabulous. This chocolate banana bread is perfect, it is easy, chocolaty, fudgy and delicious. 

Double Chocolate Banana Bread
Recipe from: Smitten Kitchen


3 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup  butter, melted

3/4 cup brown sugar 

1 large egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or paste

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon table salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder

1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chunks or chips


Pre-heat your oven to 350F. Prepare a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with butter or spray it with baking spray. I line mine with parchment paper as well to make it easier to remove. 
Mash bananas in the bottom of a large bowl. Then whisk in melted butter, add the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Place baking soda, salt, flour and cocoa powder in a sifter and sift over wet ingredients.  Stir dry and wet ingredients with a spoon until just combined do not over mix as you do not want to bread to be dry.  Stir in chocolate chunks or chips.
Pour mixture in to prepared pan. Then bake for 55-65 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick or skewer, should come out clean and may have a smear of the chocolate chips. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack. Let cool for in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and serve warm or cool completely.
