Chocolate Banana Nut Bread Mini Loaves

My second try on banana bread I decided to try something different- with chocolates! Chocolates goes well with bananas and nuts 🙂 I used this recipe with yogurt to see if there was a difference with the moisture of the bread and I did find it to be more moist that using baking powder/soda combo.



1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 Cups of unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 large bananas)
2 eggs
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup of chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place oven rack to middle position. Butter and flour (or spray with a non stick vegetable/flour spray) the bottom and sides of a 4 mini loaf pans.

Place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Let cool.

In a large bowl, mash bananas, add eggs, vanilla, melted butter, and yogurt.

In another large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.

Fold the dry into the wet ingredients, and mix well (but dont over beat).

Fold in most of the walnuts, and chocolate chips. Sprinkle on the top for decoration.
