  • Combine butter and honey in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Mix in bananas and vanilla extract.

  • Mix whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and fleur de sel together in a separate bowl. Mix into the butter mixture until batter is combined.

  • Whisk hot water into the batter. Fold in dark chocolate and walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out mostly clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes; invert onto a baking rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't have fleur de sel or manuka honey, just substitute regular salt and honey. But trust me, the richness of the Manuka honey adds so much depth to this decadent banana bread.

Be sure to watch for browning, as the honey will caramelize quickly.

OMG YUM! I made this using sea salt & Raw honey as that's what i have on hand. Baked at 350 for 45 minutes ( i was baking another banana bread different recipe at the same time) I forgot to add the chocolate chips in so i sprinkled some dark chips on top before baking. This is seriously one of the best banana breads i have ever eaten! Will be making this again Thanks!! Read More

My son and I just finished making these and they were awesome! We made them into muffins with a slightly larger amount of chocolate chips. They will be a favorite high-fiber snack for months to come. Read More

This recipe is definitely a keeper! I was looking for a healthy way to use ripe bananas and this is it. I left out the chocolate and doubled the nuts. Just delicious! Read More
