Banana bread never tasted so good. Adding in dark chocolate chips and dark cocoa powder elevates a plain old dated banana bread recipe to a whole new level.


  • 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


  • In a bowl, mash peeled bananas with a fork or with a KitchenAid paddle
  • Mix in the butter, oil, vanilla, and sugar
  • In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients together; flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda
  • Mix ⅓  of the dry ingredients with the wet, scraping down the bowl before adding another scoop of the flour mixture.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional)
  • Grease 1 large loaf pan or 2 smaller pans (batter should fill ¾ to top)
  • 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 approximately 35-40 minutes. Once mine get close, I just shut the oven off and leave the loaves in oven for approximately another 10 min, loaves always come out perfectly moist!
  • Let the loaves cool on the counter for 45 min
