Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Bananas are either eaten quickly in our house or they are left to sit and become over-ripe. This week, I had some over-ripe bananas and decided to look for a new recipe. I came across this double chocolate banana bread, which I have adapted to make a bit more points friendly. I plan to bring it to a book discussion group that I attend. Since some of the ladies are trying to eat very little sugar, I decided to try this recipe using Xylitol, which is a natural sweetener and is very low-calorie. You can use regular sugar and just add 1 point per serving. They key with bread and muffins is not to over mix or over bake. I like to cut bread into 16 pieces by cutting in 8 pieces on the long side of the bread and then cutting those pieces in half. This makes for a thicker, although smaller, slice. 

Serves 16

  • 1 c. Xylitol ( or sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. canola oil
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray.

  1. Beat Xylitol ( sugar), eggs, and oil to combine.
  2. Beat in bananas and vanilla.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips.
  4. Stir until just combined. Spoon into loaf pan.
  5. Bake 50-60 minutes or until top is cracked and bread springs back when you lightly touch the top.
  6. I like to check my bread at least 5 minutes early to make sure I am not over baking.
