If you've ever had one of our Vegan Rye Brownies at our FLOUR SHOP pop-ups, you are already familiar with the winning combination of chocolate and rye. Did we need another banana bread recipe? Perhaps no, since ours is already a favourite. But this one has chocolate and chocolate chips so you don't want to miss out.
Double Chocolate Rye Banana Bread
~ adapted from Smitten Kitchen
4 medium very ripe bananas
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup GRAIN Organic 100% Whole Grain Rye Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, roughly mash bananas (we like to leave a few bigger pieces). Whisk in melted butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together - GRAIN Organic 100% Whole Grain Rye Flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, and add to wet ingredients. Gently fold batter together with a spatula and when it's almost all mixed together, add the chocolate chips, and continue to fold until just combined. Do not over mix.
Pour batter into a prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean and the top has set.
