chocolate chocolate-chip banana bread


I was rather distracted by the boys whining at my feet when I was making my regular banana bread recipe and actually put cocoa instead of baking powder into my bowl. I decided to make the most of it and turn my plain ol’ banana bread into chocolate, chocolate chip banana bread. It turned out great and is still low-fat (well, except for the chocolate. ;) )

Chocolate chocolate-chip banana bread

3 large, ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips and blend well. Add in the chocolate chips and stir gently. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake on centre rack for 50-60 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool on a cooling rack and slice.

    Sure, blame the accidental chocolate addition on the kids :)
