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!

I used sour cream, ripe bananas and butter to make this Chocolate Banana Bread super moist and soft. I also loaded the banana bread with tons of gooey chocolate chunks.

What makes this Banana Bread super moist:

  • Brown Sugar: In place of granulated sugar I used brown sugar to add extra moisture to the bread.
  • Sour Cream: Adds a nice richness, tang and tons of moisture!
  • Bananas: I add three extra ripe bananas to the bread. They add so much moisture to the batter and extra sweetness!
