Her’s a new banana bread recipe I found – try it next time you want something sweet with your coffee…..
Chocolate Chip-Espresso Banana Bread
1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (3 to 4 bananas)
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray two 8×4-inch loaf pans with canola oil cooking spray. In medium bowl, stir together bananas, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, the brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla and eggs. In another medium bowl, stir together flour, espresso powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to banana mixture, stirring to combine. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into loaf pans. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon granulated sugar on top. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until brown and firm to the touch. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and place top sides up on cooling rack. Cool completely befor slicing.
For even more chocolaty flavor , drizzle with melted chocolate across top before serving.
