This Choc Chunk Banana Bread has been our go to for a while now. It’s fluffy, chocolate-y, super easy to make and just overall delicious.
Banana bread is something I didn’t grow up with, but moving to Australia you can buy it in pretty much every single cafe (that is, if you’re not vegan). If you’re eating plant based, finding a delicious slice of banana bread on the go is a bit trickier, so I usually just make my own. Plus it’s a great way to use up old and overripe bananas that I otherwise wouldn’t eat anymore.
The batter is made within 10 minutes and made with ingredients that you probably already have at home. It’s also quite versatile. You can easily swap the chocolate chunks for sultanas and swap the almonds for a different nut.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you might also like to try these delicious treats:
I hope you love making and eating this choc chunk banana bread just as much as I do. Please let me know what you think about it in the comments or tag me on Instagram @nothangryanymore with your creations. I love seeing them!
