Instructions For Chocolate Banana Bread
Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, Greek yogurt (or sour cream), eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips, reserving a handful for sprinkling on top.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
Enjoy each delightful slice of moist and chocolatey goodness! This Chocolate Banana Bread is perfect for breakfast, snacking, or even as a dessert. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
