This Double Chocolate Banana Bread is going to become your new favorite banana bread recipe! It's easy to make, crazy moist, tender, and loaded with chocolate chips and cocoa powder for an ultra chocolaty breakfast treat that's full of flavor. Perfect for using up ripe bananas.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9 by 5-inch metal loaf pan*** with parchment paper, leaving an overhang. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
*I prefer Dutch-process cocoa for its flavor and color in this recipe, but you can use natural unsweetened cocoa powder too.
**For an ultra-chocolaty experience, use ¾ cup (128 grams) of semisweet chocolate for the topping. Once the chocolate is melted, use a spatula to coat the entire top of the bread. Coating will be deliciously thick and will solidify when cooled.
***If baking with a glass or ceramic loaf pan, drop the temperature to 325°F and increase the baking time by about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the loaf registers at least 200°F internal temperature.
