Double Chocolate Banana Bread
One of the most popular recipes on our site is our banana bread, so I've decided to change it up and add chocolate. That's sort of a no-brainer right?
Think of this recipe as a cross between our banana bread and a chocolate cake. It has a rich chocolate flavour with hints of cinnamon, and can be served with butter, nut butter or ice cream.
I decided to add some extra chocolate chips to the top, both for presentation and because there’s absolutely no such thing as too much chocolate.
2 free range eggs
⅓ cup butter, melted
2 mashed bananas (the browner the better as they mash easily and taste sweeter)
1 extra banana if you want to have one on top to decorate
¼ cup natural yogurt
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup gluten free flour
1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chocolate chips (i used dark chocolate)
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius fan bake – line a loaf pan with baking paper.
In a bowl, beat the eggs, then add the butter. Mix well.
Add the mashed bananas, yogurt, baking soda and salt, mix well. Add the gluten free flour, cacao, chocolate chips, and cinnamon and mix well.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 40 minutes. To make sure it is cooked through place a knife or toothpick into the cake before removing from oven. If the knife or toothpick comes out clean, it is ready!
Let the bread cool on a wire rack before serving. Is best served warm with butter or almond butter.
