This Double Chocolate Banana Bread is:
- deliciously moist and fluffy
- so quick and easy to make
- loaded with banana and chocolate flavour
- stuffed full of chocolate chunks
To make this banana bread recipe, simply whisk together the dry ingredients (including chocolate chunks) in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in another. Combine the two mixtures together (avoid over-mixing), then pour into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper or foil. Top with extra chocolate chunks if desired!
Bake for about 50 – 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with a few moist crumbs. You may want to cover the loaf with foil halfway through baking to prevent it from browning too much.
