This chocolate banana bread is where my love of banana bread meets my craving for chocolate! Toss in those mini chocolate chips (because why not?!) and you have yourself a delicious slice of chocolatey heaven!
2 pasture raised eggs
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
3 medium very-ripe bananas
1 2/3 cups white whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup chocolate protein powder (I use KOS)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (+ more to sprinkle on top!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all wet ingredients, except eggs, together in a stand mixer until nice and creamy. Then add in eggs and mix until just combined.
In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and whisk for about 30 seconds to ensure leavening agents are well dispersed. Then add in mini chocolate chips and evenly coat*
Add dry ingredients into the wet and mix until well combined.
Transfer to a lightly greased 9x13 loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a knife comes out MOSTLY clean. If it's completely clean, your loaf will be a little dry.
Allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes and enjoy!
*Adding chocolate chips into flour mixture to evenly coat them, prevents them from sinking to the bottom while baking
