The Best One-Bowl Chocolate Banana Bread is a delicious, healthy chocolate banana bread that is so easy to make with simple and good-for-you ingredients.
As an avid recipe maker I’ve tried many banana bread recipes and this one is by far the best one yet! It’s super simple to make, so it’s great for beginners in the kitchen, and it’s perfectly moist and delicious with loads of good ingredients.
I don’t know about you but I’m always searching for perfectly simple recipes that don’t use any out of the ordinary ingredients. I wanted a good chocolate banana bread that tasted awesome but only had the most basic of healthy ingredients. This is that chocolate banana bread! You only need almonds, flax seed eggs, ripe bananas, cocoa powder and any type of liquid sweetener such as maple or date syrup.
This recipe is my second recipe for Snacking Essentials. I am a proud ambassador of their brand and truly love their products and the whole company itself. They are all about healthy eating recipes and treats as well as active lifestyle. Check out the gorgeous Homemade Granola I made for them last month.
This cake can be made completely by hand, though you can use a mixer if you like. I actually prefer to make the banana bread batter by hand – and the bonus is that you can do it all in one-bowl!This Best One- Bowl Chocolate Banana Bread is the recipe I make when I don’t know what else to bake. It’s the recipe I reach for when I only have an hour before we have to be somewhere and I forgot I had said I’d bring healthy dessert. Trust me, you NEED this recipe in your life!

This recipe is amazing and is made at least every other weekend in this house! It's so easy and is a great snack for my husband's lunchbox when at work. It's gorgeous plain or with some peanut butter spread on it! Total winner!
Sharon, thank you for leaving such a lovely comment. Thank you and I am so happy you love it as much as I do. And lucky husband to have a lunchbox snack like that! He is a very lucky man. Hedi x x x
5 stars!! So delicious! A wonderful chocolate fix. I've been cutting it into really thin slices. I didn't add the extra banana on top because I wanted to save my last banana for my morning smoothie. It still tastes amazing! I will definitely be making this again
Thank you so much Alyssa, means so much x x x
