Chocolate Banana Bread

Last week I had a bunch of bananas that we forgot about that were about to go bad, so obviously I needed to make banana bread. But here’s the thing, I didn’t have any chocolate chips and I firmly believe you can’t make banana bread without chocolate chips. So, I thought maybe I could find a recipe for chocolate banana bread instead because I had cocoa powder on hand.

Brilliant idea.

It turned out wonderfully and was a little different texture than my normal banana bread. I definitely recommend it. (P.S. add chocolate chips though, if you have them.)

1 cup margarine, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
6 bananas, mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup lite sour cream



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9×5 inch loaf pans.

2. In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar and eggs. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Sift in flour, baking soda and cocoa; mix well. Blend in sour cream and chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean.
