Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Banana Bread

10 ounces pitted dried prunes
3/4 cup bananas (about 2 medium)
2 large eggs
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup banana chips, chopped coarsely
1 cup chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Banana Bread

  1. In a small saucepan, bring prunes and 2 cups of water to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until prunes are very soft, about 20 minutes. Drain.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350F. Lightly butter a 59-inch loaf pan and line bottom with a piece of parchment paper, cut to fit.

  3. In a food processor, whirl prunes and bananas until very smooth. Add eggs and whirl to combine.

  4. In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda. Stir in banana mixture until evenly moistened. Stir in banana chips and chocolate chips. Scrape the thick batter into pan and spread level.

  5. Bake bread until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out a little chocolatey but not gooey, 40 to 50 minutes. Loosen bread from pan with a knife and invert onto a rack. Remove parchment. Turn bread right-side-up and let cool at least 1 hour before slicing.

  6. Cooking Tips

  7. *Shortcut: Sub 10 oz. (1 1/4 cups) unsweetened prune baby food for the pitted prunes, and omit water and cooking in step 1.
