Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

When I posted my popular coffee-infused Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe, I was fully convinced I’d never make another banana bread recipe that rivals it. That’s my go-to recipe every time I have ripe bananas on hand and it never disappoints. Then, I came across this recipe…

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

This moist, rich banana bread is made from a chocolate and sour cream batter and is studded with melted semi-sweet chocolate chips. It’s pretty darn fabulous – not too sweet and the banana flavor pairs perfectly with the cocoa.

I’m not sure I’ve seen a prettier loaf of banana bread in all my days. This will proudly join my other recipe on the regular banana bread rotation from now on. It’s that blessed good.

Have you ever added espresso to this recipe or added cocoa powder to your other banana bread recipe? I am thinking it would be great...the coffee would accent the cocoa really well!

We don't get sour cream where I live. Will regular cream do? Can I make it sour somehow?

Do you have plain yogurt or greek yogurt? Either of those will work nicely.
