This easy Italian double chocolate banana bread can be your ideal energetic breakfast that you can have along with a cup of tea, coffee, fresh juice, or ice tea. It is very delicious and rich! Here is the recipe:


  • 3 medium ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • milk chocolate chips, to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with nonstick baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Then, whisk in the brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, and egg. Sift in the salt, flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder; stir the batter with a wooden spoon until well-incorporated. Next, gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared pan; then, evenly sprinkle the semisweet chocolate chips. Place in the oven and bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve.
  • Keep bread wrapped tightly at room temperature for up to 4 days.
