Chocolate Banana Bread

Bananas and chocolate both come from the jungle here in Peru, so they obviously combine very well together!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Yield: One loaf

Source: Adapted from Baking From My Home to Yours


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 1/4 cup rubia sugar (or use a combination of white & brown)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup drinkable plain yogurt or buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together at medium speed until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in the mashed bananas and beat on low. Add the flour mixture in 3 additions, then the yogurt, mixing only until ingredients are combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks. Scrape the batter into the pan.
  4. Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 70 minutes. Cover the bread with foil if the top is getting dark. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan and cool completely.

  1. This is a recipe I would like to try. I sometimes add chocolate chips to my banana bread but never thought of cocoa!
