Taste of Sweetness Saturday: Double Chocolate Banana Bread
Here's the original recipe, which I adapted from.
1 cup sugar
1/5 cup apple sauce (no oil)
1 1/4 cups mashed bananas (about 3)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 C flour
3/4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2. Beat sugar, eggs, and oil in large bowl at medium speed until combined. Beat in banana and vanilla at low speed. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; beat into banana mixture at low speed just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
3 Spoon batter into pan. Bake 60-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
The bread was dense and filling. I find most whole wheat breads similar, especially when using apple sauce over oil, but it was still great to have a slice (or two) every day for breakfast.
Thomas should come home more often!!
