Notes

  • Applesauce: You can substitute with an equal amount of milk if you don't have any applesauce.
  • Don't over mix the batter when you add the flour. The dry ingredients should be just combined.
  • Be sure to grease your tin well before adding the batter and baking. You can also use parchment for super easy removal.
Storage: Store double chocolate banana bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
