Chocolate Banana Bread:

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9" x 5" loaf pan (I use homemade cake release). Line with parchment (optional).

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.**

In a medium bowl, whisk together mashed bananas, oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Bake for 55-65 mins or until a cake tester comes out mostly clean.

Cool in pan on wire rack for 10mins, turn out and cool completely on wire rack.


Finely chop chocolate and place into a bowl. Bring cream just barely to a simmer and pour over chopped chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 2 mins. Stir with a spatula until combined and smooth.

Cool completely before drizzling over loaf.***
