2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large bananas, mashed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup milk
4 ounces dark chocolate, melted
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips*
Of course, in our house we add nuts from Durham Pecan, but you can certainly omit.
Mix flour, cocoa, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder together. Set aside.
Mix egg, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Add bananas and milk. Do not over mix.
Stir in dry ingredients, mixing with a spoon until batter comes together. Add melted butter and stir until it become a part of the batter, then stir in melted dark chocolate.
Fold in chocolate chips.* Pour batter into loaf pan.
Bake on a baking sheet for 55-60 minutes, or until center is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Remove bread from oven and sprinkle with additional chocolate chips if desired. Let cool completely (1-2 hours) before cutting.
*If you want less melting of chocolate chips, toss with ½ tablespoon flour before folding into batter.
