  • 2 C all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1/2 C light brown sugar
  • 1/4 C unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 C ripe bananas roughly 3-4 bananas, mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 C plain yogurt
  • 3.5 oz semi-sweet or dark chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add mashed bananas, eggs and yogurt. Mix until barely combined. Add dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Melt chocolate in a medium sized heat safe bowl in 30 second intervals at 50% power. Stir after each 30 seconds. Continue until chocolate is completely melted.
  • Add 1 cup of batter to the chocolate. Mix well.
  • Lightly grease a 10-inch loaf pan with baking spray. Line your pan with parchment paper (this makes removing the bread easier).
  • Add large spoonfuls of alternating batter throughout the loaf pan. Swirl gently with a knife, be careful not to over swirl.
  • Bake for 65-75 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack before removing the loaf from the pan. Store in an airtight container or freeze, wrapped and labeled well.
