This recipe was initially entitled “Mocha Chip Banana Bread”, however regardless of including each espresso powder and brewed espresso to the batter, the espresso taste was misplaced after baking. What the double dose of espresso DID do, nonetheless, was improve the chocolate taste of the bread. So, Double Chocolate Banana Bread it’s!
Chocolate appears to be its personal meals group for me as of late, because it’s a part of my each day meals consumption. I attempt to preserve a bag of Guittard additional darkish chocolate chips in inventory always for baking and snacking… however I discovered myself with an empty bag final week (the horror!) and needed to get my chocolate repair by mixing a small spoonful of on the spot cocoa powder into Greek yogurt. It was surprisingly tasty.
With this fast bread, I (and also you) can healthfully satiate a chocolate craving very first thing within the morning! A mere 1/2 cup of unrefined maple syrup is all of the added sugar you want should you use overripe bananas (with brown skins). In case you’re used to extra of a cake-like fast bread in the case of sweetness, you’ll be able to improve the quantity to three/four cup, however I actually assume it’s candy sufficient with 1/2 cup.
A light-weight sprinkling of darkish chocolate chips on high provides a little bit of decadence, however be forewarned, you’ll have to fend off an intense temptation to select all of them off earlier than the bread has even cooled down from baking!
In case you’re pondering slice of this chocolate banana bread could be even higher with a drizzle of peanut butter, then we’re on the identical wavelength. There isn’t any higher taste mixture!
