Chocolate Banana Bread
Making banana bread has become a part of my weekly food prep routine. The girls love to snack on it during the day and I also love to grab an occasional slice when I have a sweet tooth.
I decided to mix up a slightly more decadent version of my usual banana bread base recipe by adding chocolate! Cocoa powder in the batter and chocolate chips make this banana bread feel extra special. My girls were so excited when I gave them a slice because they thought it was chocolate cake!
I know people hate this word, but this chocolate banana bread is so moist! This is thanks to an extra egg, but also sour cream! Sour cream is glorious in cakes and breads and if you haven’t tried adding it, it’s a must! If you don’t have sour cream, you can also use milk (any milk will do). I also prefer to use brown sugar over white sugar in my banana breads. The molasses also adds moisture.
This recipe takes under 10 minutes to mix up and smells glorious while baking. Enjoy it for breakfast or as a sweet treat with some tea or coffee. I always like to freeze some of my banana bread too so it stays fresher longer! You can also bake this recipe into muffins if you would prefer.
