Raspberry Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

This week I made a ridiculously delicious  Raspberry Dark Chocolate Banana Bread. Be sure to check out the short video below that shows you just how to make it!

You know it has to be good because my teacher, my family, and I all LOVED it. I can almost guarantee that your mouth is watering when you look at the picture below. Now watch and enjoy the delicious looking pictures.

This loaf turned out amazingly yummy. It was a great banana bread and the distinct chocolate flavor with a sweet, fruity twist was awesome.

Now that you guys are hypnotized by the delicious beauty of the banana bread, let me tell you a bit more about it. The Raspberry- Dark Chocolate Banana Bread is more of an afternoon snack than a breakfast. It can be eaten at breakfast, but I wouldn’t recommend it. A big time sugar rush…. just might not do good things to you first thing in the morning!  This banana bread should be moist in the middle after it cools. I hope you LOVE this banana bread and guard it with your life! 🙂

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
  • 1 cup halved raspberries, tossed in 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat the sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Stir in the flour mixture; just until moist. Don't over-mix. Stir in the chocolate chunks and then gently stir in the raspberries. If you want, you can sprinkle a few additional chocolate chunks and raspberries on the top to make it look pretty.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from pan and cool completely on the wire rack.

Added 1/2 cup of Dutch cocoa and baked for 65 minutes on the lower third of the oven. Off the charts! Especially when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Excellent recipe.

My husband saw this recipe on Facebook and sent it to me. He loves raspberries. Me, not so much. But I made a loaf of this today and it is delicious! Thank you!

Here are some of the things I love in life: bananas, my son, chocolate, my husband, raspberries, Netflix, bread... I could go on, but I think you get the gist of it. Haha! This bread has tons of my favorite things in it. Next time I'll have to serve it to my boys while watching Netflix and snuggling my cat. Perfection! But, seriously, this was a tasty loaf of banana bread :)

Just bought ingredients and am making tomorrow. I picked up vanilla yogurt instead of plain though. Will that work?

Can I substitute full fat sour cream for the yogurt?
