Pro tips to make Chocolate Banana Bread more delicious:

  • Use only very overripe bananas. Bananas are the key ingredient for this banana bread recipe, if the bananas will be riper, sweeter, and creamier, then tastier the banana bread will be.
  • Don’t over-mix the batter if you want to get Banana Bread fluffy and soft. Over-mixing can make it heavy and hard.
  • Don’t mash the bananas fully, leave the banana pieces or chunks in the batter, because they will make the bread juicier and creamier.
  • You can use any plant milk which you want such as oat, almond, coconut, etc. Pay attention to whether it’s sweetened or not to not over-sweeten the batter.
  • You can try to mix oat flour with buckwheat, it could work well.
  • You can add nuts to the mixture if you want or spread over with them The Banana Bread to get more crispiness.
