This is a recipe I stumbled on a few years ago…and Jen-ified it. I cut the sugar, added more banana and applesauce. If using as a dessert feel free to add some mini chocolate chips. I usually serve it as breakfast to my choco-holic daughter so I skip the chips. It’s sweet enough and super chocolate-y with out them.
Chocolate Banana Bread / Cake
- 3 ripe bananas
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup apple sauce (unsweetened)
- 1 t vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 cup flour (can be whole wheat or white)
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 t baking soda
- ½ t salt
- Optional ¼ cup mini chocolate chips on top
Combine all ingredients. Grease or parchment line an 8×8 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
This cake is very moist. Refrigerate once cooled.
