Banana, Cinnamon and Chocolate Mini Loaves

I discovered this recipe 2 years ago in the summer and I just fell in love with it and the product… banana, cinnamon and chocolate mini loaves! They’re like muffins but you have a slice – way more sophisticated I think 😉

They are super easy to make and I just love the taste…. the ripe bananas give it such a nice tang and the cinnamon lightens the flavour, as well as the chocolate giving it a good ol’ sweet taste. I also really enjoy baking with yogurt or buttermilk at the moment (rather than whole milk) as it gives it a more creamy texture.

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet as the loaves really speak for themselves, just give them a try!

( I also looooove using up over ripe bananas – I never seem to have time to eat all of them as I like mine quite firm)  and who doesn’t like a recipe that uses up ingredients rather than throwing them away?!

Banana, Cinnamon and Chocolate Mini Loaves 

 100g unsalted butter

2 eggs

175g golden caster sugar

225g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

3 tbsp greek yogurt

1 tsp cinnamon

4 very ripe bananas

100g dark chocolate, chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease the loaf tins
  2. Place the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and chocolate into a large bowl. Mix and create a well in the centre
  3. Beat the sugar and butter together and then the eggs
  4. Add the yogurt and then the mashed bananas.
  5. Add this mixture into the flour well and stir only to moisten. DO NOT over mix! (this will create really dense loaves)
  6. Add the batter to the tins and bake for around 20 minutes
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool
  8. Sprinkle over cinnamon sugar if desired!
