Jump start your morning with delicious slices of a chocolaty, espresso-packed banana bread.
Next time you have a few bananas lying around, you have to try this: Chocolate Chip-Espresso Banana Bread. It really is amazing. The instant espresso powder offsets the sweetness of the chocolate. This recipe is moist and a little decadent and pairs nicely with a warm cup of coffee.
Banana bread is a comfort food that brings back memories of your mom or grandmother. It is a loaf of love! You only need a bowl and a wooden spoon to mix this up. Grab your bananas, instant espresso powder and chocolate chips.
Mash up the bananas. I used a potato masher, and it worked like a charm.
Add in the sugars, butter, vanilla and eggs. Beat until smooth.
Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture. Add in the chocolate chips and mix well.
Pour into one large loaf pan or two small ones. I like baking two and sharing one with a friend.
Bake until the top is brown and firm to the touch, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before slicing…if you can resist!
