  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 120 grams
  • ½ cup brown sugar 107 grams
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 42 grams
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 6 grams
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 4 grams
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 ripe bananas 300-360 grams, mashed
  • 2 large eggs 100 grams, room temperature
  • ½ cup unsalted butter 113 grams, melted (1 stick)
  • ½ cup applesauce 114 grams, see note
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 4 grams
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips 128 grams, divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
    1 cup all-purpose flour, ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • In a separate large bowl, combine the bananas, eggs, butter, applesauce, and vanilla.
    3 ripe bananas, 2 large eggs, ½ cup unsalted butter, ½ cup applesauce, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir together until just mixed.
  • Fold in ½ cup chocolate chips.
    ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Add the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate chips over the top of the bread.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the bread.



  • 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.
