Chocolate Banana Bread

Today I am super excited to share with you a new recipe I tried the beginning of this week. Chocolate Banana Bread. Talk about YUM! My husband is not a fan of sugary treats. Why, I’m not sure. He’s crazy. But, moving on….I love anything sugary or chocolatey. If it’s both- even better. But I am learning to like non-sugary treats and snacks, too. My hubby was quite happy to try this moist, fluffy banana bread, with a hint of chocolate. He was even happier to find that it wasn’t at all sugary. Yes! Success. 😉

Chocolate Banana Bread | Through The Lens of Hannah Diane     It rose so much, was fluffy and light, but the top was nice and crunchy. Just how we like it! Here’s the recipe….enjoy!


Chocolate Banana Bread

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup room temperature butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)
2 eggs
1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

Heat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9X5″ bread pan and set aside.
In a mixing bowl add the butter and sugar. On low speed, with the paddle attachment on, mix for about 5 minutes until creamy and slightly fluffy.
Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool a little.
Add the eggs, mashed bananas and Greek yogurt and mix until combined.
Slowly, on low speed, add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stop the mixer when all the flour is incorporated.
Take 1 cup of the batter out and mix it with the melted chocolate.
Pour the remaining batter into the greased bread pan.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the banana batter and, with a fork, make a couple of swirls.
Bake the banana bread in preheated oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Leave to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan before removing. Cool completely on a wire rack.
