Summer is here!  Summer means flip flops & sundresses & bright colors & ice cream.  Actually, those last two I welcome all year round but you know.

What I love most about summer is the FRESH FRUIT!  A trip to the grocery store and I can hardly contain myself.  Strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, canteloupe, mangos, pineapple… I am in heaven!  But my absolute FAVE summer fruit are red, ripe, sweet raspberries.

After picking up a perfectly fresh pint from the store, I knew I had to throw them into a recipe.  Preferably one with the rotting bananas sitting on my counter because I just can’t look at them anymore.  So what better way to use my bounty of fruits than in a carby, sweet banana bread?!I love baking banana bread. Just like chocolate chip cookies, banana bread is a favorite “blank canvas” recipe of mine because there are SO many variations and add-ins you can play with.  Peanut butter, walnuts, toffee, oats, caramel, chocolate, butterscotch, nutella, berries, mango, etc etc.

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread. This is the best banana bread recipe! So flavorful, moist, and tender. sallysbakingaddiction.com

You can make it with butter or oil, yogurt or sour cream, all-purpose or whole wheat flour.  But no matter what add-ins or variations you choose, there is an art to making truly great and perfectly moist banana bread – and I’ve come to perfect it.  It all starts and ends with some really, really brown bananas.  Like almost black and too ripe to eat.  Mushy and thick and practically rotten bananas are the secret to an unbeatable moist, dense, and sweet banana bread.

Today’s banana bread, with it’s incredible moistness and sweet banana flavor, is chock full of fresh summer raspberries and studded with rich dark chocolate chips.  I’m telling you… this bread is addicting. Oh and it’s practically a health good.  You’ve got your bananas, berries, dark chocolate, low fat yogurt, and whole wheat flour.

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread

Moist, flavorful, and bursting with goodies like raspberries and dark chocolate.

Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (250 grams) white whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons (60 grams) unsalted butter, softened to room temp
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mashed very ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • 1/3 cup (60 grams) plain low fat yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (135 grams) dark chocolate chips (I used half semi-sweet, half dark chocolate)
  • 1 cup (150 grams) halved raspberries, tossed in 1 Tablespoon (8 grams) all-purpose flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a separate large bowl, beat the sugar and butter with a stand or handheld mixer on medium speed until well blended - about 1 minute. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the mashed banana, yogurt, and vanilla. Continue beating until blended.

Slowly stir in the flour mixture by hand, until *just combined* - do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips and then gently stir in the raspberries - you do not want the raspberries to bleed their color. You may sprinkle a few raspberries + chocolate chips on top for looks as well.

The batter will be very thick, so spoon it into the prepared loaf pan rather than pouring it. 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.

    I love the smell of banana bread. Did you know that Yankee Candle has a banana bread candle? I own it, and it is out of this world. It is a discontinued one, but you can get lucky and find it once and awhile! I would highly recommend your finding it! Great recipe, love!

    Sally this looks amazing!!! And the pics…each and every post I am seeing your photos just shine and get more amazing than the last. Beautiful work!

    And I like the rainbow-themed font :) And the split/half-n-half pic. Did you use something like picmonkey to create that? It can be a pain in LR. One of the only downfalls of it.

    Gorgeous post!!

      Averie! Thank you SO much. This is the nicest compliment I could ever receive because I personally was not excited about these pictures! Thank you for the confidence boost! I actually used LR for the diptych/split in half pic. I googled “How to create a diptych in LR” and watched a youtube video to create it – it was a pain, but you can save it as a preset and use it each time, so you only have to do it once! Thank you thank you thank you! xo, Sally

    I am a banana bread freak! I love love love it so much but honestly, can never seem to get it just right. I actually think it’s because my bananas aren’t dark enough, so the flavor isn’t as strong. What a great tip to use up those nasty-looking naners on my kitchen counter :) and I would totally wear banana bread perfume with you if you bottled it–so you have one order in! Also, raspberries are one of my faves; what a unique way to throw them into bread! I swear, you’re a freakin’ genius, Sally! I love that I found your blog because I know we’d be BFFs in real life! <3

    I made this last night, yum! I had to use golden raspberries because my store was out of red raspberries (absurd, I know!). I also used fat free greek yogurt, and I subbed in 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for all-purpose. It’s not as beautiful as yours, due to my golden raspberries, but still really tasty. I love it, thanks! :)

    I made this awesome bread, but was inspired by your love for chocolate and peanut butter – so I had a little light bulb moment. I replaced the berries with some healthy peanut butter, the kind you have to stir and the ingredients say, very simply, peanuts. 1:1 ratio replacement of berries with the peanut butter. I added about a 1/3 cup more yogurt for an extra creamy texture. I also used almond milk in place of the skim milk and replaced the flour with rice flour – toying with gluten free! I baked using a mini-loaf pan, making 8 single serving deserts that I gave out to friends so that they could share in the heavenly bread. VERY filling and VERY awesome! I also made a second pan of bread, leaving out the chocolate, replacing with just peanut butter morsels – but added almond slivers to the recipe… any nut would be just as good.

    What a lovely recipe Sally, thank you ever so much for sharing – the way you write your blog is such a pleasure to read/follow, thank you. I have just baked this banana bread, it’s cooling as I type. I followed the recipe exactly but I ended up some how with a lot of batter, and it therefore took much longer to cook – it’s a bit of an odd shaped loaf too.. good job I do not have to post photos – your banana bread looks far prettier than mine. I will take it to work tomorrow for my friends, whom I know will love the banana, raspberry and dark chocolate combination. Thank you again, it really is a lovely recipe and a really nice twist on banana bread :)

    Hi Sally,

      Hey Jessica! Try covering the bread with foil and baking for 65 minutes. That may help the sides and bottom to burn less and cook the middle.

      I wish I could find a wholesaler who sold extra ripe bananas! But I always have to wait for them to get ripe on my counter! I’m glad you found measuring cups, Anita! Thanks for all the kind words and let me know what you make first!

        sometimes at the market they will sell ripe bananas at a cheap price…from now on I know what I’m buying…ripe bananes by kilo’s! Overripe them and into the freezer :-)

        Will send a pic from the next bake!

    Hi Sally, unfortunately the outcome of my cake was a disaster…i followed the instructions carefully… but i missed out the butter (has to be in room temp) so what I did was to put it in microwave to have it melted…. the cake was so hard heavy as a rubber… I cant even taste the banana on it (considering I waited for so long for my bananas to be fully riped) hehe… I wonder what happened how come my cake turns out like a rock? I really wanna know so that I can avoid to do same mistake again.

    By the way, do u have a chocolate cake recipe that has that sauce inside or serve as a toppings… i forgot that french word… mostly it goes with the puddings.

    thanks

      Use room temperature butter and cream it as the recipe states, do not use melted butter. That is why the bread did not turn out. So just follow the recipe exactly for success. I don’t have any chocolate cakes with ganache or syrup in it, though my Triple Chocolate Layer Cake is a favorite! http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/04/08/triple-chocolate-layer-cake/

    I love all your posts Sally! You should make your own book, or even iPhone/iPad app. I was just wondering, I made this lAst weekend, and it would not cook throughly. Just wondering what I could have done wrong. I had it in the oven for 70 minutes. And it still wasn’t cooked. Maybe I over mixed?

    Btw.. Do you have any videos with your recipes? That would make life easier haha!!

      Hi Joy, I do not post videos for my recipes at this time. I do, however, have an upcoming cookbook: http://www.amazon.com/Sallys-Baking-Addiction-Irresistible-Cupcakes/dp/1937994341

      All ovens are different. This bread takes longer in my fiance’s parents kitchen than it does in mine. It takes less time in my own parent’s kitchen than it does in mine. I suggest you buy an oven thermometer, make sure the temperature is accurate, and cover the bread with aluminum foil to ensure it bakes evenly.

    Hi! I am a norwegian girl who is taking a semester at UC Berkeley as an exchange student. One of my favorite hobbies is baking, and when I searched for some recepies I luckily found your blog!
    I just love the way you describe your bakingaddiction, and I have already tried your oatmeal pancakes and breakfast banana cookies. They tasted both fantastic!
    I would love to bake this raspberry-banana-bread, but do you think I can try o bake it without the sugar?

    Thank you! :)

      Hi Anne, I don’t recommend leaving out all of the sugar. If you’d like to reduce it, perhaps go down to 1/3 cup at the very least. The bread won’t really be sweet, but hopefully you’ll still like it. Enjoy!

    I made the recipe today – it was perfect on a sunny spring day!
    The bread came out so so deliciously! My family and guest loved it and asked for more. It was super moist and I loved the combined flavors of banana and raspberries. I did it with frozen raspberries, since they are no seasonal fruits at the moment, but I guess it came out just as it was supposed to.
    Thanks so much for sharing the recipe, I posted it on my blog as well and linked it to yours.

    But what I was most glad about is the fact, that your recipe works even here in Germany! I was worried to not have the right ingredients, but there weren’t any problems at all. I will try some of your other recipes soon!
    Love, Laura
