video instructions available below 👇 


– 3 ripe bananas, mashed
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
– 3/4 cup granulated sugar
– 1 large egg, room temperature
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional, for extra indulgence)


1. **Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan:**
– Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

2. **Mash the Bananas:**
– In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Set aside.

3. **Combine Wet Ingredients:**
– In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and granulated sugar until well combined.
– Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter mixture, and whisk until smooth.

4. **Mix Dry Ingredients:**
– In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

5. **Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:**
– Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in a dense loaf.

6. **Fold in the Mashed Bananas:**
– Gently fold the mashed bananas into the batter until evenly distributed.

7. **Add Chocolate Chips (Optional):**
– If using chocolate chips, fold them into the batter until they are evenly dispersed.

8. **Bake the Bread:**
– Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it out evenly.
– Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached.

9. **Cool and Serve:**
– Once baked, remove the chocolate banana bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes.
– Carefully transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

10. **Slice and Enjoy:**
– Slice the moist chocolate banana bread into thick slices and serve it warm or at room temperature.
– Enjoy it on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate sauce for extra indulgence!

Tips and Variations

– For added texture, you can fold in chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans along with the chocolate chips.
– If you prefer a dairy-free version, you can substitute the butter with an equal amount of melted coconut oil or a dairy-free alternative.
– To keep your chocolate banana bread moist, store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days, or freeze individual slices for longer storage.

With its irresistible combination of moistness and chocolatey goodness, our Moist Chocolate Banana Bread is the ultimate comfort food that’s perfect for breakfast, dessert, or anytime you’re craving a sweet treat. Whip up a batch today and experience the joy of homemade baking at its finest!
