Banana Bread With Dark Chocolate

Something about this time of year always has me craving banana bread. It probably has something to do with the fact that I always try and increase my fruit and veggie intake at the beginning of the year. This year we are going to try out whole 30. I am excited to really clean up our diets and detox, but I’m not thrilled about giving up dairy.

You can obviously skip the dark chocolate to reduce the sugar in this recipe, but I love the way the chocolate melts into the bread. My favorite way to enjoy this bread is toasted with a little butter. There are not a lot of ingredients. I tried to make it as much about the bananas as possible.

Since this bread is so focused on the bananas you end up with a really moist treat. Nothing is worse then a piece of dry breakfast bread. I think next time I might swap the chocolate out for raisins and pecans.
