  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the yogurt and vanilla extract.
  4. Mix in the mashed bananas.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined. Avoid overmixing.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  8. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the bread cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Slice the Chocolate Banana Bread and serve.
