I used to be a banana bread purist. Bananas, nuts, that’s it. I wrote about it quite passionately when I first posted my classic banana bread (I’ll be updating this recipe soon). But then I had kids who ate bananas – until they didn’t eat bananas but I kept buying them over and over because they *might* ask for a banana.

So my counter gets over run with bananas

And we make a LOT of banana bread which means my kids have become expert banana mashers. Luckily, they eat banana bread better than they eat the actual banana. Kids. Eat yo’ food!

Since I make so many banana breads, I can’t just make the same banana bread every time. I mean, there are some days I make 4-5 breads in a day. Full sized breads, not minis. THAT’S A LOT OF BANANA BREAD. I’ve been experimenting with a bunch of fun banana bread flavors. All of them have been hits. I have so many banana bread flavors to share, I might just have to start an eBook for them. Would anyone even be interested in that? Let me know, I might have to make it happen! Might take me 6 months to get it done, but sure – eBook for banana bread lovers.

Today’s version is a double chocolate banana bread. You leave out the chocolate chips and just call it a chocolate banana bread but why would you want to leave out the chocolate chips. They’re the best part! I like to add extra on the top to make it even prettier and chocolatier. Scrumptious.

Enjoy!

I have been making your recipes for years always with your Nightshade free flour blend and my family loves your banana bread. A few days ago my daughter asked for a "chocolatey" baked good so I browsed through and found this one. My family DEVOURED this! I am the only one who is GF in my family but I barely got 2 pieces of this amazing loaf! This will be in our "regular" rotation of sweets!

I just found this recipe and made it last night, in the middle of all my Thanksgiving cooking. I had 3 bananas left that were one day from the trash. Oh my goodness! Delicious! I generally think of banana bread as a breakfast recipe, but this was just too sinful for breakfast. It is moist and very chocolatey. In case anyone is interested, I used Better Batter gluten free flour, and it was perfect. Thank you, I think, for this wonderful and easy recipe. Too good, almost!

Love this banana bread! Gets ra v e reviews. Just wondering though, I've wanted to try with coconut milk but didn't know if I should use from a can of carton. Guess that's a stupid question but don't have much experience with it, thanks, Linda

Thanks Linda! And no, not a stupid question! I make this often with unsweetened coconut milk from the carton.
