Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Banana Nut Bread

1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

2 tbsp flour

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Banana Nut Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place oven rack to middle position. Butter and flour the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. Set aside.

  2. Place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 - 10 minutes, until lightly toasted. Let cool and then chop coarsely (be sure to leave a few aside for garnishment if desired).

  3. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  4. In a medium-sized bowl, mash bananas. Add eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. With a rubber spatula lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined and batter is thick and chunky. Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips.

  5. Pour batter in prepared loaf pan. Garnish with whole nuts, if desired. Bake until bread has risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

  6. Place on a wire rack to cool and then remove the bread from the pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.
