It is the same old story every weekend.

Overripe spotted bananas lying on the counter waiting to be rescued.

The kids wonder if they will be baked into a banana bread, or will it be muffins this time? Maybe Banana oat muffins or whole wheat muffins perhaps.,

But this weekend had to be extra special – I was sick this past week and the kids were very accommodating so I thought of going beyond the good old muffins. We all needed something spectacular to forget how crappy and miserable this week was.

What better than chocolate to lift our spirits up, right?

Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 16 pieces
Diet : Nut-free

Method: Oven
Cuisine : American

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup mashed bananas, 3 medium sized bananas
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels

Instructions
 

Without a Blender

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper and grease the paper with either cooking spray or butter.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients - all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt till they are combined. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the mashed bananas, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and eggs and mix them well. Add the flour mixture and 1/4th cup chocolate chips and mix them till they are combined.
  • Pour the batter into the greased pan and sprinkle on chocolate chips over it. Bake for 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. ( I checked at the 23-minute mark and it was done)
  • Remove from the oven and let the cake cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut the cake into slices.

  1. Divine! This cake was absolutely divine! My kids finished the entire loaf!
    Amazing… Thanks for the recipe… It’s definately a keeper…

    1. Iris – I have not tried it that way so I am not comfortable saying it is okay to do it. You can give it a shot and let us know how it turned out.

      1. I added just 1tbsp of cocoa powder to the 1/2 cup, and topped it off with flour. It has just a subtle chocolate taste.. But amazing cake
