Banana Chocolate Bread

Marlena asked me yesterday if she could have a piece of chocolate for dessert…. “Sorry”, I said, “but I don’t think we are going to have a lot of chocolate for the next few weeks. How about we make some banana bread?” –Pause- “How about some chocolate banana bread?” she responded.

So that’s what we did. And it turned out really yummy. (But not very sweet – just to warn those of you who like it rather sugary…)

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups of whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1/3 cup soft butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • 2 t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • 2 T milk
  • pinch of salt

Mash bananas. Mix all the wet ingredients together in one bowl. Combine all the dry ingredients in a second bowl. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet mix. Blend for about 2 minutes. Pour in buttered loaf pan (8x4x2) and bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes.

Enjoy.
