Now that we all stack our fridges with way more than we actually need, here I come to the rescue for those sad, over-ripened bananas you thought you were gonna eat but didn’t. Yeah, we’ve all been there. Especially now. So, how about turn your trash into treasure and stop food waste in an enjoyable way? I’m talking a rich and decadent Chocolate Banana Bread to take away this isolation blues.

Tips and tricks for the best Chocolate Banana Bread:

-The key ingredient to the banana bread is..oh, well…bananas. Make sure they’re over-ripened, the softer the better. Also, that’s when their sweetness reaches its peak.

-You can use any type of milk you like, even buttermilk works well here. I used almond milk this time cause that’s what I had in the fridge.

-You can switch the coconut oil with melted butter, it works just as fine.

-Feel free to take it to the next level with 1/4 cup of your favourite nuts or chocolate chips to make it even more chocolatey and decadent. THERE ARE NO RULES NOW!

-Check the banana bread with a toothpick. You want it to be wet, but clean, so it’s still moist. Remember that it will keep cooking even after you take it out of the oven, because of the heat inside it.
