This is undoubtedly the BEST chocolate banana bread recipe you'll ever make! It's a one bowl recipe that's super moist, tender, slightly fudgy, and just all around delicious! It's like a brownie and banana bread in one and I honestly cannot stop eating this cake!
Lately, I've been working on so many different recipes. However, this Chocolate Banana Bread is BY FAR my favorite. This is the best chocolate banana bread I've ever eaten - chocolate or no chocolate. It's amazing.
The bread is super chocolatey, tender and moist, easy to make, and just heaven on a plate. If I could describe this properly, it's like a brownie and traditional banana bread got together and had a baby. The fudgy yet cakey texture with the chocolate chips... as I said, heaven on a plate! Also, It goes PERFECTLY with a cup of coffee. Or by itself. Or with whatever you like - it's just that good.
As I mentioned above, I have been testing so many recipes lately. I've been bursting at the seems with creativity, however, there's nothing like enjoying something simple and easy, this like chocolate banana bread.
What I also love about this chocolate banana bread is that it uses basic pantry items and doesn't require you to buy any special ingredients. I used ripe bananas just as they became spotty and a little cocoa powder and chocolate chips.. also a touch of nutmeg. This combination of ingredients is out of this world!
I thought you'd never ask! Ok so super simple recipe here. Mash up 4 ripe bananas and add the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, melted butter, and sour cream. Then add the cocoa powder (I prefer Hershey's cocoa powder, however, use whatever you have!), flour, kosher salt, baking soda, and nutmeg.
Mix it all together and add the semi-sweet chocolate chips. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top! Then bake! Bake for one hour to an hour and 10 minutes. Of note, this recipe requires a 9x5 loaf pan.

Coffee is my favorite! Slicing into this chocolate banana bread heating it up with a little butter.. then sipping my coffee?! SO good.
You can enjoy the bread by itself too. However you decide to enjoy it, it'll be delicious!
