Often times I feel like I race with how fast bananas ripen. Sometimes, they don’t get spotty fast enough, and I’m over here trying to make a banana bread. But other times, they turn ripe in a blink of an eye. 

Anyway, today is one of those days, I have a banana clock ticking.

If you have been around my kitchen for a while (Thank you for your support!), you know how much I love banana bread. I’ve got that easy flourless one, my original recipe ( Here ). Then, I gave it a summer twist of a peach banana bread. Even more? My most popular Chocolate chip banana muffins! Because nothing beats the addition of chocolate chips. 

You get the point.

I love Banana Bread.

Sweetened with bananas and sweet potatoes only, this recipe is healthy, so delicious and yet easy to make.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 small ripe banana
  • Steamed/baked sweet potato (super soft)
  • Eggs
  • Smooth Almond Butter
  • Coconut Flour

I tweaked recipe a little bit with additional coconut flour to make it rise a little bit. But if you prefer super gooey and dense banana bread, feel free to omit coconut flour.

Sweet Potato Chocolate Brownie

Here are the 4 ingredients you need:

  • Sweet potato

  • Almond butter
  • Eggs

How to Make Chocolate Banana Bread

How to make Chocolate Brownie Banana Bread step by step instruction

I divided the two recipes in half and adjusted them a little bit to make this chocolate banana bread.

First, in two mixing bowls, combine all the wet ingredient together. You can either use a blender or immersion blender. If the sweet potatoes you are using are very soft, you can just smash and whisk everything together with a fork.

Second, add the dry ingredients to each bowl. Coconut flour to the banana bread, and cacao powder to the chocolate brownie batter.

Third, line a 9×5 pan with parchment paper. Pour half chocolate brownie batter in. Then gently smash it on your kitchen counter. Now pour all the banana bread batter on top. At the end, scoop the rest of the chocolate and spread across banana bread.

Lastly, add some extra banana or chocolate chip on top. Then bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until tooth pick come out clean.

Tip: The brownie takes slightly shorter time than the banana bread does in the original recipe. Therefore, adding coconut flour to banana bread can make the banana bread part take a little less time to cook.
