This Chocolate Banana Bread is made with cocoa powder, bananas and chocolate chips, so it is loaded with chocolate flavor! It makes three mini loaves, so you can freeze some for later, or share with friends.
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease 3 small 3 x 5 3/4" loaf pans; set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oil, melted butter, brown sugar, egg, mashed bananas, and vanilla till well blended.
Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture with 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips. Stir till just combined and divide between the 3 loaf pans.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of chips on top of the loaves. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or till toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool for 5-10 minutes in pans, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely.
