Dark Chocolate Banana Bread


  • 3-4  Whole Bananas Frozen 
  • 1 Stick of Unsalted Butter (melted)
  • ¼ Cup of Vegetable Oil
  • 1Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg (room temperature)
  • ¾ Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Flour
  • ½ Cup of Unsweetened Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 Cup of Chocolate Chips (optional)
  • ½ Cup of Chopped Nuts (optional)


  1. In a bowl, mash peeled bananas with a fork or with a Kitchenaid paddle
  2. Mix in the butter,oil, vanilla, and sugar
  3. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients together; flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda
  4. Mix ⅓  of the dry ingredients with the wet, scraping down the bowl before adding another scoop of the flour mixture.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional)
  6. Grease 1 large loaf pan or 2 smaller pans (batter should fill ¾ to top)
  7. Bake 350F until a toothpick comes out clean (just make sure you don’t hit a choc chip) 1 large loaf should take 55 -60 minutes and 2 smaller loaves will take aproximately 35-40 minutes. Once mine get close, I just shut the oven off and leave the loaves in oven for aproximately another 10 min, loaves always come out perfectly moist!
  8. Let the loaves cool on the counter for 45 min
