4. Chocolate Banana Bread

What’s better than aromatic, moist, and fluffy banana bread? Easy: chocolate banana bread.

Aside from all the things you love about banana bread, this one is even more exceptional because of the added chocolate flavor.

The batter itself is infused with cocoa powder. Plus, it’s not just dotted with chocolate chips, but covered entirely with them!

5. Chocolate Banana Brownies

6. Double Chocolate Banana Cupcakes

Double the chocolate, double the fun.

Despite being very chocolate-forward, though, you’ll love how these cupcakes aren’t overwhelmingly rich.

The ripe bananas both complement and balance out the decadence of the chocolate.

The buttercream is chocolatey, but not too sweet.

The cocoa powder adds a little bit of bitterness that dials down the sugar, giving you a perfectly balanced dessert. 

7. Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

A crisp and flaky pie crust is loaded with chocolate, whipped cream, and sweet bananas. Mmm.

This pie is incredibly sweet, creamy, and chocolatey!

As a bonus, this ice cream only requires three ingredients to make! Impressive, amirite?

Or, turn them into a decadent dessert topped with ice cream or whipped cream. 

13. Chocolate Banana Pudding

Made with layers of wafer cookies, bananas, and chocolate banana cream pudding, this dessert is utterly delicious.

If you’ll notice from the layers, this pudding requires no cooking or baking at all.

Just assemble the layers in a pretty trifle bowl and refrigerate.

The hardest part is waiting for it to chill! It’s best served a day after, but it’s okay if you dig into it after 1 hour.
