I’m a little lazy sometimes. I’ll admit that. This is proof.
I was in town getting groceries and saw that bananas were 14 cents a pound. They were the ones that were banana bread ready so I grabbed a couple sacks of them.
The kids at my house love banana bread and love smoothies. I used these bananas all the time for both. Plus Georgia and Gannon are both trying baby food (Gannon hates it-Georgie loves it) so these softer bananas work great for making our own baby food too.
Well about the same day I saw a recipe in my Facebook feed that was for chocolate banana bread. That sounded interesting but I didn’t tag the recipe.
So…I was going to make banana bread with the bananas and remembered chocolate banana bread. Shucks. I didn’t tag the recipe. Of course I could have gone to the computer and Googled “chocolate banana bread”, but like I said, I’m a little lazy.
Instead I decided to tweak my own banana bread recipe.
It’s my favorite recipe and came from our daughter Kayla. This makes ONE loaf.
I ended up making it but I wanted TWO loaves and I wanted chocolate I made these tweaks. I doubled everything but when it came to the flour this is the change I made- 1/2 cup cocoa and 2 1/2 cups flour.
Here the loaves are ready for the oven.
They came out looking like this….
They sure looked good….
The texture looks good…
…but now for a taste…..
I’m doing a thumbs up for sure. You can see that I didn’t wait too long and let it cool properly…but it’s good and very moist. I think it will be even better once it cooled. Yep…my laziness in not finding a proper recipe and just tweaking my own definitely worked. I think next time I’ll add a few mini chocolate chips. YUM!!
