Double Chocolate Banana Bread is the ultimate excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast. It’s insanely moist and super chocolatey while still tasting like bananas! The batter comes together in just 15 minutes so it’s the perfect way to use up all your overripe bananas.

Ingredient Breakdown

All-purpose flour – this gives the chocolate banana bread structure.

Cocoa powder – gives the banana bread its chocolate flavor! I always use natural unsweetened cocoa powder.

Baking soda – necessary to make the banana bread rise.

Bananas – the most important ingredient for banana bread! Make sure your bananas are overripe. The riper the banana, the better it is for baking because they’re sweeter!

Butter – melted butter adds both flavor and moisture! I always recommend using unsalted butter but salted butter works if that’s all you have on hand, just be sure to omit the 1/2 teaspoon of salt later on.

Vegetable oil – keeps the chocolate banana bread extra moist!

Granulated & brown sugar – sweetens the bread. The brown sugar makes it extra moist! Either light or dark brown sugar will work. You can substitute the granulated sugar for brown sugar.

Eggs – helps bind the ingredients.

Vanilla extract and salt – enhances flavor.

Chocolate Chips – It wouldn’t be called Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread without these! You can use whatever chocolate chips you prefer but I usually use semi-sweet chocolate chips.

How To Make Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1. In a small bowl combine the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl mash the bananas then mix in the melted butter and vegetable oil. Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla extract.

3. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until almost combined (there should still be streaks of flour). Add half of the chocolate chips then fold until just combined.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan then top with remaining chocolate chips.

Pro Tips For Double Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate.
  • Don’t over mix the batter! There should still be streaks of flour in the dough when you add the chocolate chips. Overmixing will develop too much gluten and the banana bread will be dense/gummy!
  • Make sure your parchment paper hangs over the sides of the loaf pan for easy removal after baking!
  • Let the banana bread cool for a little bit before slicing! If the bread is too warm it will fall apart.
