Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 (180 g) cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 cup (40 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 large, ripe banana (300 g or 1 1/2 cup mashed)
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (85 g) chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (176ºC), and lightly grease a 9 x 5 (23cm x 13cm) loaf pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until well combined and set aside.
  3. Lightly beat the eggs in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add mashed bananas, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, brown sugar, and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir gently. Do not over mix. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour the batter into the loaf pan, spreading it out evenly, and bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. After 45 minutes, you may wish to cover with a sheet of tin foil to prevent the top from getting too brown.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

* You could also make this with whole wheat pastry flour or sub our ½ of the all-purpose with whole wheat.
