Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Makes one loaf, 12-16 servings
  • 5 medium over ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup non-hydrogenated margarine
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup melted semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp milk (preferably non-dairy)
  • 1 3/4 c. whole wheat white flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/4- 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips (or chunks)

Turn the oven to broil. Slice the 5 bananas horizontally into 3 slices each. Spread out on a greased baking sheet and broil for 6 minutes, until the top turns brown and starts bubbling. Let cool. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Puree the bananas and cream in the butter, brown sugar, eggs, chocolate, milk, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, leavening, salt, and cocoa. Pour the wet mixture over the dry and fold in until there is no powder apparent. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into a greased and “cocoa powdered” 9x5 loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool for at least 10 minutes before enjoying!
