  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 23 x 13-cm (9 x 5-inch) loaf pan with a strip of parchment paper, letting it hang over both sides. Butter the other two sides.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter with the brown sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until smooth.
  4. On low speed, add the bananas and dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Add the chocolate and combine. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle with the peanuts.
  5. Bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean but slightly topped with melted chocolate. Let cool for at least 1 hour and unmould. Serve warm or cold.


  1. The best! You’d never refer to another recipe if you try this one. Simply amazing!

  2. I made it with almost double the amount of dark chocolate. PERFECT!

  3. I lik.edthe texture. I just would like it better if I doubled the chocolate chips in it,

  4. Made this several times. Never gets old. I put macadamia nuts instead. Also add a table spoon of instant coffee. Enhance The chocolate yum yum yum.

  5. This recipe is to die for! I basically only use Ricardo recipes these days. Thanks for this super moist, delectable banana bread recipe! Love it!

  6. Perfect recipe for a moist and fluffy banana bread! Not too sweet nor greasy! And easy to make! Thanks Ricardo!

  7. My (adult) son just made this for us and I love it! I will definitely make it again! He used mini chocolate chips and they stayed suspended evenly throughout the loaf.

  8. I made this yesterday for my kids...17, 14, and 4...they loved it, it is already gone. It was delicious and very moist. I put the chocolate chips and crushed walnuts right in the batter. This will definitely be made again...and again.

  9. I made this yesterday. Not only was it very easy to make, it was delicious. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks Ricardo.
