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.
This chocolate banana bread is super easy to make, however, see below for my favorite tips to make this bread everything and more:
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!

Having company and I was out of ideas for dessert,well I made this quick and fast
It was moist and tasty. The best I have ever made. Needless to say;my guest went home with a few.
I'm so happy to hear that, thank you for your review!
how would i substitute the sour cream?
you can use greek yogurt instead
Eating this was a little mind bending, but I assure you it was all good. I bit into the first bite with the expectation of brownie like chocolate richness, and instead was delighted by chocolate bananas! How it was so alarming as chocolate banana bread is the name of the recipe I will never know. But as this was my first foray into such territory my brain told me to expect a tried and true chocolate dessert. I followed the recipe in most of the ways but had to make two changes. One is that I used a 9x9 cake pan, because I couldn’t find my loaf pan, and used dark chocolate chips instead of semi sweet chips as I didn’t have any of the later on hand. It baked up beautifully and I cut it up like a cake and enjoyed warm out of the oven. My family loved it as well. I don’t know that it will last until tomorrows breakfast.
I'm so happy to hear this! Thank you so much, I'm so glad that you enjoyed this recipe! 🙂
Best chocolate banana bread I’ve ever tasted! Thank you Britney, for sharing your recipe!
I was going to share the other loaf but after I tasted a slice, I decided I’ll freeze the other one fir me fir someday! Haha! So Fudgy. I’ll just reduce the white sugar to 3/4 if I use semi sweet chocolate chips. I used Hershey cocoa like you recommended (left over from chocolate crinkles baking last Christmas!)
Now I can look forward to breakfast snack tomorrow! !
Awww I'm so happy that you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for your feedback!

This banana bread is just delectable - I don’t even really like chocolate that much but I made this for my partner and we both ate it all in one night! It was so moist and not too rich - the perfect balance of flavors. I am just blown away. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!!!
