Prep Time: 10 minutes    Cook Time: 55 minutes      Servings: 12      Calories: 268kcal


3 ripe bananas

120 g (3/4 cup) brown sugar

150 g butter, melted#

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

150 g plain flour

35 g cocoa powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp bi-carbonate soda

1/2 cup dark choc melts

1/4 cup choc chips


Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius (160 if using fan-forced).

Grease a rectangular loaf tin (approx 23cm X 13cm) with butter and set aside.

Mash the bananas in a  large bowl.

Add the brown sugar, melted butter, egg and vanilla. Whisk well.

Sift the plain flour, cocoa, salt and bi-carb soda over the top. Stir until just combined.

Add 1/2 cup dark chocolate melts and stir through.

Pour mixture into the prepared loaf tin.

Sprinkle over the choc chips.

Cook for 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out with just a few crumbs on it (don’t overcook though – you want a moist, fudgy loaf).

Allow to cool for 20 minutes and then place onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days at room temperature (or freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months).
