Chocolate Flecked Banana Bread

There’s so many banana bread recipes out there. I’ve tried SO many of  them, as I’m sure you have too, but this one really, truly takes the  cake. Errr, bread.

This recipe doesn’t call for a ton of butter, and you don’t even need an electric mixer to make it. Plus it bakes up all puffy & brown on the outside, and moist & tender-crumbed on the inside.

– egg, beaten lightly – sugar – Greek yogurt – flour – baking soda – baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan then cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the pan with edges hanging over the side.

By taking this extra step you prevent the possibility of any bit of your tasty treat sticking to, and you can lift it right out of the pan once  it’s cooled and you’re ready to slice.

Melt your butter and set aside. Mash your bananas. Add sugar, yogurt, and  the lightly beaten egg. Mix. Add melted butter and mix again until all  the wet ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, & cinnamon. Whisk to combine and stir in your chocolate. Add the dry ingredients into the wet a little bit at a time.

Folding together very gently so as not to over-mix as this will result in a tough loaf! Pour into your greased and parchment-ed loaf tin and bake for 45-55 min.
