Chocolate banana bread

Banana Bread for Chocolate Lovers

Kitchen time


When I was younger I hated bananas. The smell, the taste, the fast that everybody loved them … Everything! I know hate is a strong word but I really really didn’t like them. Not even the chocolate covered ones or banana split! Even though bananas are still not one one of my favourite fruits, I must say they are delicious when it comes to desserts. So it seemed like it was time to finally try to bake banana bread. Easy job, right?


Not so simple :). As you all probably know, I never have every ingredient in my kitchen that I would need for the recipes I look up, and I always end up making something I made up. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes not so great. Luckily, this one fell into the first category, even though I kept looking into the oven if the thing would bake properly! From omnivores and sugar addicts, to vegetarians and vegans, everybody was impressed. After some more vegetable-colored breads, like zucchini loaf and carrot cake, there was time for fruity stuff.


You’ll need:

2 cups of spelt flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1/3 cup of cocoa
1 tsp of cinnamon

3 mashed bananas
2/3 cup of margarine
3/4 cup of raw brown sugar
1 tbsp of vanilla sugar
1/3 cup of rice milk

1/2 cup of chopped dark chocolate
Chopped almonds


Stir the first pile of ingredients together and then mix the second one for 2-3 minutes. Combine everything together, add dark chocolate and after spilling the mixture into the baking tray, sprinkle some chopped almonds on top. Bake for 1 hour at 175°C. Just to warn you, mixture will be very, very thick and the loaf almost doubles it’s size in the oven.
