I don't normally gloat about my recipes to others. Sure, I'll say "Oh this one is a goodie!" But I've never been obsessed with a loaf quite like I am with this one. I perfected my banana bread, with the help of a little honey and chocolate. This one is the new girl in town and she's absolutely fabulous.
I made this recipe with my son the first time, and while I had zero intention of blogging it at first, I absolutely had to because it came out perfect. This one deserves a medal. No joke. The mouthfeel, the flavor, the overall structure, and the balance of flavors is 10/10, no matter how you slice it. I am obsessed with this honey chocolate banana bread and you will be too! This banana bread marries delicious chocolate chunks with the delicate and earthy flavors of honey, which creates the perfect trio when paired with banana. It's literally perfection.
These two, while honey and bananas are sweet, really compliment each other when paired together. Bananas have a natural sugar to them, especially when they ripen. While honey does have a sweet factor, I love baking with honey because it adds another layer of earthy, sweet flavor to the final result, making it perfect for breakfast or an anytime treat.
Not at all! I like to switch up the chocolate I use when I bake, but because I use some sugar, bananas, and honey, I didn't want to add too much more sugar as it's already pretty sweet (in a good way!). I used Hu Kitchen's baking gems, which are made with unrefined sugar and are not terribly sweet to begin with. I chop them up and add to the batter. When these baking gems melt, they puddle and spread really well, so the end result leaves you with a pretty even distribution of just enough chocolate throughout the entire banana bread.
The ingredients for this banana bread omit dairy entirely, and while we do use just a half cup of sugar to pair with the honey and banana, you can opt for more honey if you want to omit all the added sugar entirely!
If I can make this in 20 minutes and have it in the oven before my son goes down for a nap or bedtime, you can totally make this as quickly as I did!!
