Sixty four cents for a bag of ripe bananas, "yes, please!"
The best way I know of to use ripe bananas is to whip up a batch of yummy banana bread. But instead of the typical banana bread, I wanted to try adding chocolate. I was dreaming of a full blown deliciously moist chocolate and chocolate chip banana bread. mmmm, mmmm.
This is one of those rare recipes that came together on the first try, and oh, is it soooo good. So easy, and so chocolatey you will want to run to the produce department for marked down bananas :)
Double Chocolate Banana Bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with butter flavored cooking spray.
Mix the following until blended:
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
2 1/3 cup mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 cup plus 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a cake tester or knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
