First of all, this bread is delicious. So delicious that the pictures I took as I hurried through the baking process just don't do it justice.
You see, I needed a treat to take to my parents' house for Father's Day and so I made this chocolate chocolate chip banana bread. And it was so yummy that I knew I had to share. Except when I looked back at the photos, I realized that I didn't have a single one of the sliced bread. Only the bread sitting nicely in it's little loaf pan.
This was a pretty big pinterest success. I used the original recipe by Money Saving Mom and followed her recipe almost to the letter. (By the way, she says this is freezer friendly, so if you'd like to make it now for later...you have my recommendation.)
INGREDIENTS1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate, but you can use semi-sweet or dark depending on your preference. I also actually misread this and DUMPED 1 1/2 cups into the bowl and then realized that definitely couldn't be right, so I after pulling off what I could, I ended up with about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips...not the worst thing to have happened.)
3 ripe bananas
I only had 2 bananas left by the weekend, but they were pretty big, so I used them and the recipe worked fine. But, if you want a rich banana taste, you should have 3.
My version of mashed bananas..super easy with a fork if they are fully ripe.
