Double Chocolate Banana Bread ... Guest Post by Jana of Life Could Be A Dream

Hey beautiful Put a Bird On It readers! I'm so excited to be swapping blogs with Daniela today! I'm Jana from Life Could Be a Dream (be sure to hop on over there in just a minute to see what Dani has cooked up for my readers!). I met Daniela last month at Build Your Blog Conference. She was the very first person I introduced myself to, and I'm so glad I did! She is an absolute gem and we became friends pretty quickly. We bonded over having kiddos about the same age, our mutual love for Chic-fil-A, and discovering fabulous new beauty products together. One of the first things people learn about me is that I graduate from culinary school. I am a foodie times a million. I love creating new recipes, but most of all I just love to eat. Banana bread is way up there on my list of favorite foods. There are so many delicious ways you can make banana bread. My mom's original banana bread recipe is my favorite, but I love this blueberry pie swirl version as well. Today's recipe is all about chocolate. I'm a sucker for it, and I'll eat it with anything. Especially in banana bread. Holy. YUM.


Double Chocolate Banana Bread

1 cup oil 
2 cups sugar 
2 tsp vanilla 
4 eggs 
2 cups mashed banana 
1 tsp salt 
3 cups flour 
1/2 cup + 2 TBS cocoa powder 
2 tsp baking soda 
2 tsp baking powder 
1 cup sour cream 
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

 Preheat oven to 335 degrees. Grease two loaf pans and set aside. Mix together all ingredients except chocolate chips until well blended. Then, fold in the chocolate chips. Split the batter between the two loaf pans and bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack and cool before inverting to remove from pan.

Aww yeah. That's what I like to see. While it's baking, this banana bread will make your house smell seriously SO amazing. Like, somebody please make a candle out of that smell.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! It's a new favorite of ours. My little guy and I couldn't stop eating it. I hope you'll stop by Life Could Be a Dream sometime and say hello. :)
