Chocolate Walnut Banana Bread

Yum-o…! Chocolate Walnut Banana Bread looks like a loaf but tastes like a sweet muffin. I like to bake two mini loaves because one of the reasons I enjoy baking is the opportunity to share my treats. The other reason – I like to lick the bowl ;-) Enjoy!

1 cup (120g) flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons (11g) cocoa powder

½ cup (8 tablespoons, 113g) butter, softened

½ cup (106g) brown sugar (light or dark)

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 medium bananas, mashed (~1 cup or 220g)

1/2 cup (113g) Greek yogurt

½ cup (85g) semisweet chocolate chips

¾ cup (85g) walnuts, chopped

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.

  • Lightly grease or line loaf pans; either two mini loaf pans or one 9" x 5" loaf pan.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until lighter in color and creamy.

  • Beat in the egg.

  • Stir in the vanilla, banana and Greek yogurt.

  • In small increments, add the dry ingredients. Stir gently after each addition until all of the dry ingredients are added to the wet.

  • Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

  • Spread the batter in the prepared pan(s).

  • For two mini loaves, bake for around 45 minutes. For a single loaf, bake for around 60 minutes. A wooden toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean.

  • Cool completely on a wire rack.
