Easy and delicious, this Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread whips up in a single bowl! You can even freeze it to always have a delicious snack on hand.
Chocolate chips and banana are a combination like peanut butter and jelly – they just work SO well together.
It was just a matter of time until I HAD to post a chocolate banana quick bread variation 🙂
This bread is loaded with goodies like Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour, healthy oil and eggs. Out whips up in a single bowl (yay for less dishes!) and is loved by adults and kids alike.
You can even make it, slice it and then freeze it in individual portions, so you can always pull out a slice or two when snack attack hits.
To defrost, simply leave it on a rack on the counter. In winter it will probably take a little longer, but on hot summer days it’s defrosted in a couple hours if you do actually freeze in individual slices.
If you like warm banana bread, you can always heat it in the microwave for a few seconds, or put it into a hot oven for around 3-5 minutes.
