Chocolate Banana Bread
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan (I like to use coconut or olive oil spray).

  3. In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and baking soda.

  4. In a large mixing bowl add mashed bananas, melted butter, melted coconut oil, light brown sugar, vanilla, and egg. Blend with a hand mixer on low to medium speed until smooth.

  5. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet, being careful not to over mix.

  6. Stir in about 3/4 of the chocolate chips.

  7. Pour bread batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.

  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes (or until toothpick inserted toward the center of the loaf removes clean).

  9. Remove from the oven and cool on a baking rack for 10 minutes before loosening bread to remove it from the pan.

Eat and Enjoy!
