Double Chocolatey Chippy Banana Bread

I love perfectly ripe bananas, but the time frame that they are perfectly ripe is very short… 5 seconds.  Well, that’s a slight exaggeration, but only slight.  With that being said, I usually have a freezer full of overripe bananas.  I have a delicious Banana Crumb Muffin recipe that is my go to, but sometimes I’m craving something a little sweeter, a little chocolateyer… that a word?  It totally should be.  Anyways, this is another recipe with the perfect mixture of yum for all those bananas piling up in your freezer.


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 mashed over ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa (unsweetened)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 generous cup of mini or reg. semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 340°.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together your sugar, oil and eggs.
  3. Then mix in your vanilla and squishy mashed bananas
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together all of the remaining dry ingredients.
  5. Gradually stir dry mixture into wet mixture just until combined. Don’t over mix.
  6. Grease and flour your loaf pan (to prevent sticking) and then pour in your batter.
  7. Bake for approximately 60 min. Check center to make sure it is done all the way through. If utensil does not come out clean, bake for another 5-10 min, then check again. It will have a beautiful cracked top. If you pull it out too soon, the middle will not be done and it will sink in.
  8. Serve warm or room temperature with a delicious glass of milk!
