  • Warm the oven up to 175°F (350°F). Set aside a 9×5-inch loaf pan that has been greased.
  • To make the bananas smooth, use a fork to mash them in a large bowl.


  • When you add the melted butter and sugar to the mashed bananas, mix them together well.
  • It will be smooth and creamy after you add the egg and vanilla extract.


  • Sift the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a different bowl.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix them together until they are just combined.


  • Add the Greek yoghurt or sour cream and mix it into the batter until it’s fully mixed in. Be careful not to mix too much.
  • If you want, you can add the semi-sweet chocolate chips and gently fold them into the batter until they are spread out evenly.


  • Use a spatula to smooth the top of the batter as it goes into the loaf pan that has been prepared.
  • You can add more banana slices and chocolate chips to the top of the batter if you want to make it look better and taste better.


  • After the oven is hot, bake the cake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean or with a few wet crumbs on it.
  • Take the chocolate banana bread out of the oven after it’s done and let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan.
  • Move the bread carefully to a wire rack to cool down completely before cutting it.

  • You can serve the chocolate banana bread warm or at room temperature. Cut it into thick slices the next day.


  • This rich dessert is great on its own, but you can also top it with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, or powdered sugar.


Tips and Variations

  • If you want the best flavour and sweetness in your banana bread, use bananas that are past their prime.
  • Add a tablespoon of mayonnaise or sour cream to the batter to make it even more moist.


  • Add chopped nuts, like pecans or walnuts, to your chocolate banana bread to make it your own. They will give it more flavour and crunch.
  • You can use whole wheat flour or almond flour instead of some of the all-purpose flour to make it healthier.


  • Add a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter if you like spices. It will make it smell warm and lovely.
  • Pour the batter into muffin tins that have been greased and adjust the baking time to make mini chocolate banana bread muffins.
