Chocolate Banana Bread

The most delicious chocolate banana bread (or cake) ever. In Canada we call it banana “bread “simply because it’s baked in a loaf pan but it’s definitely cake to me. I tried to lighten the ingredients up and use healthier alternatives but feel free to make any substitutions necessary. It is so moist and another one bowl wonder. You will need:

Chocolate Banana Bread

Course Dessert, Snack


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cup avocado oil or any
  • ¼ cup nut milk or any
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa/cacao
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • handful choc-chips


  • Pre-heat oven to 375F.
  • In a big bowl mash the bananas, and add in your wet ingredients + sugar. Stir and add in the cacao, flour, and baking soda.
  • Pour it out onto a loaf pan lined with parchment paper to ensure your bread does not stick. Shake the loaf pan a little bit to distribute your batter and bake for 40 to 45 minutes depending on your oven.
  • A toothpick should come out clean. You can let it cool and enjoy.
  • We like to wrap it nicely after it’s cooled and leave it on the counter as it doesn’t last us long.
