Dark chocolate creates a beautiful marbled effect in this moist banana bread made with Greek yoghurt and less sugar than most quick breads.
Scrumptious! I didn't change the recipe at all, but I did add some chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips to the batter. Yummy! - 15 Oct 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
YUM!! I've been using AllRecipes for over 15 years but this is the first review I've ever written. It seemed appropriate that it's also the first review for this recipe. I did make a few changes, based on what I had. But, none of these minor changes affected the integrity of the recipe. (1) used sour cream (no Greek Yogurt, but will make again when I do have, and as poster mentioned, think I will try flavored), (2) added extra 1/4 tsp salt (1/2 tsp total, because used unsalted butter), (3) added 1 tbsp sugar to cocoa/water mix (wanted little more sweet), (4) used 1 tsp vanilla, since that seems typical in baking recipes, thought the 1 tbsp. might have been typo. This is my favorite banana bread recipe ever - and I've been baking for 40 years! The flavors are more subtle/mild than most recipes. The banana and chocolate are not overpowering, which I prefer because this bread goes great with hot cocoa, hot tea, coffee or a glass of milk, without having strong competing flavors. As the poster mentions, it is not real sweet. So if you want a bold, sweet flavor, this may not be what you're looking for. But if you want a simple, wonderful complement to a relaxing cup of tea, this is perfect! I also really liked the texture; some recipes are too moist-they can be too dense, almost doughy; others can be dry; this is moist without being overly heavy.
