  • 1 ¾ cups flour all-purpose
  • ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¾ cups sugar granulated, white sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large bananas this should equate to 1 ½ cups of mashed banana-- very ripe with black spots on them.
  • 6 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup Greek Yogurt plain is fine but flavored will work if you're in a pinch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla pure vanilla extract is best
  • ½ bag chocolate chips + 1 large handful for the top of the loaf I like to use the large Guittard ones for the top of the loaf but any or a mix of chocolate chips work great


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Spray 2 bread loaf pans generously with non-stick cooking spray
  • Melt the butter and set it aside to cool.  Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork.  Measure the bananas and make sure they measure out to be 1 ½ cups of mashed banana.  
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, mashed banana, eggs, greek yogurt, and vanilla. Mix until the eggs are incorporated into all the other ingredients.
  • In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt.  mix with a whisk until combined.  
  • In a large bowl, add the banana mixture (the wet ingredients) to the flour mixture (dry ingredients) and stir gently until all the ingredients are combined.  Do not over mix.
  • Pour the banana bread batter into the greased bread pans and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on the batter.
  • Bake in a 350-degree oven for 50-65 minutes or until when a toothpick is inserted into the bread, it comes out clean or only with a few crumbs on it.  
  • Let the bread cool for a few minutes before slicing into it.  Enjoy!
