We love a good banana bread. In fact, we yearn for it all the time! But sometimes we’re just looking for a touch of added sweetness, and there’s nothing like adding chocolate to the banana bread. In this recipe, we’ve coated you with the double chocolate, using both cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Shall we really still name this bread? It’s deliciously chocolaty like a cake!

  • Can I make Double Chocolate Banana Bread into muffins:

    You absolutely can!

    You can divide the batter in four ways for a Texas muffin pan and bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

    Divide the dough in half and make 2 mini loaves. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

    If you want to make muffins, line a muffin pan with paper cups and fill each cup 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes.

  • Chocolate options:

    You can use either milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips in this recipe. It all just depends on your personal taste preferences. For a truly decadent experience, use half milk chocolate chips and half semi-sweet chocolate chips.

  • What if my bananas aren’t ripe enough?

    You really want to use overripe bananas. If you haven’t finished either, simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place your bananas on a parchment-lined baking sheet that is still in the shell. Once it’s preheated, put them in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

    The outside of the bananas will begin to splash brown. Take the bananas out of the oven and let them sit on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes. The bananas will turn completely brown. Once it’s cool enough, peel the banana and you will get a nice yellow and mushy banana that is ready to use.

  • Storage instructions:

    Let your bread cool completely before storing it in an airtight container or zippered bag. It should take about 5 days.
