A slice of moist banana bread is never a bad idea, and when it's chocolate flavored that's even better! Super quick to prep, it comes out so perfectly and it's one of my favorite treats!
Print Recipe


  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Kosher sea salt
  • ½ Cup 1 stick Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Cup Light brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F, grease 9x5 loaf pan with baking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mash bananas then add melted butter. Stir to combine.
  • Add brown sugar, egg, vanilla and sour cream. Mix well.
  • Gradually add dried ingredients to the large bowl of wet ingredients. Do not over mix.
  • Fold in chocolate chips, reserving ¼ cup for the top of the bread.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan, sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, oven times may vary, check for doneness at 50 minutes, and every 5-10 minutes after that until a toothpick comes out batter free.
  • Allow to nearly completely cool to room temperature before removing from pan.
  • Serve!



  • Use very ripe bananas for the richest and sweetest flavor.
  • Bake the bread in a pre-heated oven so that it cooks evenly all the way through.
  • Be careful to not over-bake your banana bread. It’s done when a tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.
