  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 4-5 ripe bananas 2 cups mashed
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted (sub with olive or coconut oil)
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup + more for decoration semi sweet or milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Few chunks here and there is fine.
  • Add sugar, butter, eggs one at a time and using a handheld mixer whisk on low until combined.
  • In a separate mixing bowl combine dry ingredients and add to wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips with a spatula. Mix on low until everything combines.
  • Pour into a 9 x 5 inch loaf tin (greased or lined with parchment paper). Make a small cut lengthwise about ½ inch deep in the center of the bread. Decorate with chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few breadcrumbs. Cool for 15 minutes in the baking dish and then transfer to a wire rack until cooled completely.


For the best flavor, use ripe bananas full of black spots. The more ripe banana will result in a lot of banana flavor and give plenty of sweetness to the bread.
Every oven is different, I recommend checking the bread towards the last 30 minutes.
Flavor of this bread is moist with melted chocolate inside. I used milk chocolate chips which tasted delicious in combination with the dark banana bread. I highly recommend using good quality ones so they don’t melt on top quickly. Semi sweet and dark chips are fine.
