Double-Chocolate Banana Bread

A little twist on the original banana bread idea. This will make one regular-sized loaf or about 16 slices. Great with a cup of coffee.

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or applesauce)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 cups mashed bananas
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom of an 8-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.

2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, eggs, and oil (or applesauce) at medium speed until mixed (use an electric mixer or stand mixer). Beat in vanilla. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; beat into sugar mixture at low speed just until combined. Stir in bananas and chocolate chips.

3. Spoon batter into loaf pan. Bake 60-70 minutes. Cool 10 minutes then remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

The original recipe came from a copy of Cooking Pleasures Magazine which is published by the Cooking Club of America.

This was super tasty and extra-doubly chocolatey! I made it with the applesauce and it was perfectly moist and fluffy. Took about 90 minutes at 350 though. Oh and make sure you have plenty of milk to go with it, I felt like a got milk commercial afterwards!
