Twelve Days of Breads & Brownies - On the Fourth Day...

It’s banana bread time, but let’s do something special for the holidays – Chocolate Banana Bread, mmmm! And it’s a Paula Deen recipe, so you know it’s going to be delicious.

This was good stuff, and HH was sorry there wasn’t more – I was sharing the bread with others so the Diner didn’t end up with all of it, and my exercising didn’t have to be endless!!

Chocolate Banana Bread
(Featured in Cooking with Paula Deen, September/October 2010)

1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
¾ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
¼ cup butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 ½ cups ripe mashed banana (about 4 bananas)
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 oz chopped bittersweet chocolate.

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a 9” x 5” baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking soda and salt. In another large bowl, combine butter, eggs, bananas, yogurt and vanilla, whisking until smooth.

Fold flour mixture into butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Enjoy!
