Chocolate Chip Banana Bread deliciousness!!!!

This bread!!! My kiddos absolutely LOVE chocolate chips in their banana bread, so I have to indulge them…Most who know me will naturally assume that I might sneak an avocado, kale or beet in when I can. However NOT today! This bread is delicious and MOIST - not my most favorite word but truly describes it! Full of chocolatey goodness and the perfect addition to the lunch or an after school snack…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Yields: 1 loaf

Bake: 350 degrees

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: @ 50 mins. depending how hot your oven is.

Ingredients:
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour - i love Bob’s red mill

1/2 c. cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

3 Bananas (@ 1-1/2c. mashed)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg room temp.

1/2 cup 2% greek yogurt

1/3 cup agave syrup

1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chips (I absolutely love 60% bittersweet).

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees; In medium bowl mix dry ingredients and set aside. In a separate bowl mash bananas and combine wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and stir together till combined. Stir in 3/4 c. of chocolate chips and reserve 1/4 to sprinkle on top. Prepare a loaf pan - i usually use olive oil spray or avocado oil spray. Pour mixture in to prepared loaf pan, sprinkle with 1/4c. of chips and pop in oven. I typically cover with foil about 35 mins through baking as to not burn the edges. Bake for 45-50 mins depending on how hot your oven bakes. Check to make sure knife comes out clean. Let cool about 10 mins. before removing from loaf pan. Enjoy!!!! xo. W.
