Chocolate banana bread

Late call on Internal Medicine is when you admit patients from 4-7 PM, and end up staying past then to work their problems up. What better prep than bringing banana bread, and that too, chocolate:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large brown bananas
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Mash bananas in a bowl and add melted butter, oil and stir. Add brown sugar, egg and vanilla extract. In another bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda & salt. Combine dry & wet ingredients and stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle more chocolate on top. Bake for 1 hour at 350*F.

Deliciously overloaded with chocolate. You almost can’t taste the bananas (which I personally can’t complain about!)
