All Purpose Flour -- 1 ¾ cup, I have also tried with multigrain aata
Cocoa Powder -- ¼ cup
Granulated Sugar -- 1 cup
Baking Powder -- 1 tsp
Baking Soda -- ¼ tsp
Salt -- ¼ tsp
Eggs -- 2 large
Unsalted Butter -- ½ cup
Ripe Bananas -- 3 Chiquita / 1 ½ cup mashed
Vanilla Extract -- 1 tsp
Chocolate Chips -- ½ cup
Pecans -- ½ cup, Toasted and chopped
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9 x 5 loaf pan.
In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients -- flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In another bowl, combine the mashed bananas, lightly beaten eggs, melted and cooled butter, and vanilla.
Fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a spatula until just combines.Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips.
Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 60 - 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let it cool on a wire rack and then remove the bread from the pan.
Serve warm or a room temperature.
