Chocolate Banana Bread

Chocolate Banana Bread

Yields one small loaf, or 8 1-inch slices
  • 1/3 cup zucchini, peeled and then grated
  • 2 very ripe medium bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp turbinado sugar
  • 1 packet stevia sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • a dash of sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small (about-9 inch long) loaf pan and set aside. Combine zucchine and banana in a mixing bowl. Mash extremely well, until there are no banana chunks present. Add cocoa powder, sugar, stevia, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until completely combined. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Whisk the mixture well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones in 3-4 batches, stirring well in between each addition. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan, making sure to distribute evenly throughout the pan and smooth over the top. Bake for about 35 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick; if it comes out clean, it's done.
