Servings: 1 loaf
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 3 medium overripe bananas mashed
- 2 large eggs lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray (I recommend Baker’s Joy).
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat together the melted butter and sugars until thick. Stir in the banana, eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Pour into the dry ingredients and gently stir to combine. Fold in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle remaining ½ cup chocolate chips evenly over top.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until passes toothpick test and done in the middle. Optional: Loosely cover with foil the last 10 minutes of baking to avoid crispy edges.
Remove from oven and allow to completely cool in loaf pan on wire rack before removing to slice and serve.
