Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this bread. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • cocoa powder
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • baking powder
  • baking soda

  • chocolate chips OR chunks

Simple, basic ingredients that you probably already have at home!

How to make Double Chocolate Banana Bread

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.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

This Double Chocolate Banana Bread is:

  • loaded with banana and chocolate flavour

Have some chocolate banana bread leftover? You can keep in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months!

Whenever I crave a slice or two, I like to warm mine up in the microwave for a few seconds… warm, melt-y chocolate perfection.

I believe my grandson would love the Double Chocolate Banana Bread. Could I substitute milk for the greek yogurt? My grandson has a deadly dairy allergy and cannot yogurt. I want to substitute with soy milk. Is that possible or what do you suggest...........maybe just leaving out the yogurt.

You can certainly use soy milk instead of yogurt.

I am presently baking your bread, following the recipe, and it is taking a lot longer than 60 minutes. Right now, it's going into the 90th minute. Hoping for the best...

There are a few reasons why it can take longer than stated. The main reason is oven temperature. I always recommend using an oven thermometer to make sure your oven is the correct temperature. Cover the pan with foil to prevent excessive browning on top. Enjoy! :)
