Double Chocolate Banana Bread – Gluten Free

During quarantine, we made banana bread every week. I think that was food blogger tip 101 for getting through those first few weeks. It was comforting, it was delicious, and never once did it get old. During our weekly banana mashing, we decided that it may be time to spice things up a bit, and behold: Double Chocolate Banana Bread was born. This recipe satisfies the sweet tooth and also has the classic comforts of a banana bread loaf!

We did the unthinkable during our banana baking weeks… We *gasp* branched out and made a few different variations. Our classic gluten free Banana Bread still holds the top spot in our hearts, because nothing really beats the original, but this Double Chocolate Banana Bread recipe is a close second! The texture is insanely moist, fudgey and still packs a huge banana flavor.

We are still kind of in lock down here in Arizona, as the COVID cases keep ticking upwards. We are having our groceries delivered every week, and getting used to this new normal. One thing that helps us maintain a feeling of normalcy is baking. It serves as a great disconnect, and having a baked good around the house whenever a craving hits is a huge bonus. A secondary plus side is that both of our boyfriends are not huge chocolate chips fans when it comes to their baked goods, so we can pretty much devour this loaf all on our own. And yes. We realize this is hard to wrap the mind around because ALL baked goods should have chocolate chips in them. Lucky for these two, we can look past their flaws.

We know you probably do not care about whether or not our significant others like chocolate baked goods, but you do probably care about baking, creating and eating delicious things. Without any further delay, enjoy this Chocolate Banana Bread recipe!
