Coffee Dark Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

Banana Bread 1-1

Coffee Dark Chocolate Banana Bread screams class and sophistication.  My mom is a horrible cook, don’t worry she will attest to that as well, but she can make awesome banana bread.  I have no idea what her secret is because she doesn’t follow a recipe.  My mom likes to throw ingredients into a bowl and go on blind luck.  Chocolate chips always make an appearance though.  Specifically dark chocolate, which we both share a mutual love for.

Since this Coffee Dark Chocolate Banana Bread has half whole-wheat flour in it AND coffee, I am declaring it perfectly suitable for breakfast.  It’s not too sweet, has a hint of caramel flavor and a slight bitterness from the dark chocolate.  Not to toot my own horn but this banana break is knock your socks off good. Unlike my mom, I wrote this recipe down so everybody can enjoy it.
