 Ingredients List

  • Banana bread
  • 1/2 cup ( 90 grams) chocolate chips (I used Heshey's)
  • 1/4 cup (56 grams) room temperature butter
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt (I used plain Stonyfield)
  • 2 cups (240 grams) all purpose flour (I used Pillsbury)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • Ganache
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


1. Heat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9X5" bread pan and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl add the butter and sugar. On low speed, with the paddle attachment on, mix for about 5 minutes until creamy and slightly fluffy.
3. Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool a little.
4. Add the eggs, mashed bananas and Greek yogurt and mix until combined.
5. Slowly, on low speed, add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. 6. Stop the mixer when all the flour is incorporated. Do not overmix!!
7. Take 1 cup of the batter out and mix it with the melted chocolate.
8. Pour the remaining batter into the greased bread pan.
9. Pour the chocolate mixture over the banana batter and, with a fork, make a couple of swirls.
10. Bake the banana bread in preheated oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
11. Leave to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan before removing. Cool completely on a wire rack.
12. When cooled, make the ganache.
13. In a heatproof bowl, place the chocolate chips and heavy cream and microwave for about 1 minute. Stir to combine to make a smooth, rich, silky chocolate ganache.
14. Pour over the cooled banana bread and spread with a small spatula or the back of a teaspoon.
15. Let the ganache set for half an hour before slicing the bread.
16. Enjoy!
