Chocolate Banana Bread

Loaded with cocoa and chocolate chips with just a touch of cinnamon which makes this classic sweet bread truly exceptional. My kids devoured this bread the very first time I made it. Now it’s a go-to if my boys are in the mood for chocolate. Banana bread has always been a favorite of mine and I have made a more traditional chocolate chip banana bread for years. I always find it amazing that my kids claim they hate bananas, yet banana bread of any kind is something they can’t seem to say no to.

I often talk about using good quality ingredients, some things matter more than others. Quality-wise, cocoa powder, and chocolate are two things that matter in this recipe, so don’t skimp, use the good stuff. In my version of this recipe, I reduced the amount of banana and cinnamon used. I chose to highlight the chocolate flavor a bit more for a truly indulgent chocolatey taste. But you can easily adapt this recipe to meet your preferences or mood. This is the perfect sweet bread for Fall and one that won’t last all that long so you may want to double the batch!
