This rich, decadent chocolate banana bread is so moist, so tender, and so blissful. Easy recipe that is sure to please a crowd.


  • 34 medium sized bananas, about 1 1/3 cups
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350°(F). Spray a 9×5 loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mash bananas. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, cream together the butter, oil, brown sugar and sugar. It will become light and fluffy. Then mix in the eggs and mashed bananas. You can use a hand mixer for this step if you want but a good wooden spoon will work too.
  5. Now pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir well to to combine. Gently fold in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Press them in a little bit.
  7. Bake at 350°(F) for 50-60 minutes. Check for doneness by poking the center with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, the banana bread is done.
  8. Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing.
