Double Chocolate Banana Bread

This Double Chocolate Banana Bread is AMAZING! Not too sweet, loaded with chocolate, soft on the inside and super moist.

Perfect for breakfast or dessert!


Sour cream, ripe bananas and butter make this Double Chocolate Banana Bread super moist and soft.

I also loaded the banana bread with tons of gooey chocolate chunks.


To make this Double Chocolate Banana Bread simply cream the sugar and butter and add in eggs. Add in the dry ingredients then stir in sour cream and bananas. Fold in chocolate chips and pour into a loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

Serve as breakfast or dessert and enjoy!

    Made this tonight and it is absolutely delicious! The chocolate is not over powering like brownies can be. I added walnuts because walnuts make it better! Thank you so much for the recipe. My husband said this the way he wants banana nut bread from now on!

    Made it yesterday and it was delicious. I didn’t have sour cream so used greek yogurt and added 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

  • Betty

    I made this today, and am having a slice right now. It’s fantastic.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    can i make this in mini loaves> if so how many and what amt of time

    • Hi Sandi!

      I have not tried making this recipe in mini loaves so I am not sure how many it will make I would say maybe 3-4 mini loaves? I would keep it at the same temperature but cook it for less time and keep and eye on it.

    I haven’t tried it, but it looks and smells wonderful! I had gobs of white chocolate chips, so I used them.
