  • Mix flour, sugar, pudding mix, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Stir in bananas, 3/4 of the chocolate chips, eggs, and oil. Pour mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Applesauce can be substituted for the olive oil.

You'll need about 2 bananas to get 1 cup mashed.

Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out beautifully. I’m not a banana fan but I had some that were going bad, so I figured I would give this a try! It is warm and gooey when it first comes out of the oven but I also have enjoyed it at room temp. Will make again! Read More

If you want a super chocolate-y banana bread but you are out of cocoa powder but have chocolate pudding mix, this is the recipe for you. Personally, I was not a fan and I like chocolate, it was just too sweet and too much chocolate. My husband said it was just ok. I doubt I will be making this banana bread recipe again. I made the recipe as written subbing applesauce for oil as suggested. I also used gluten free flour with no issues. Read More

Delicious very chocolatey and I will make it again. I would give it five stars but as I changed it slighty because I had three bananas to use up I don't feel I should. I upped the bananas flour salt and baking powder by 50% I used applesauce as suggested instead of the oil (50% more) five large eggs just 1 cup of dark chocolate morsels (what I had in the pantry) two packs of chocolate fudge pudding and the same amount of sugar as in the original recipe. Baked in a large loaf tin for about 90 minutes. Turned out great but next time I will try it using one pack of pudding. Read More

Made homemade pudding because I didn't have the instant pudding it called for. My family really enjoyed this recipe. Read More

This was very moist, chocolaty and good. I made the recipe as written except I used self-rising flour (so I omitted the salt and baking powder) and I substituted brown sugar for white. I also sprinkled chopped walnuts on top with the chocolate chips. I'm glad I checked it at the 68 minute mark because it was already done and slightly overcooked (the edges were dry), so 1 hr 20 minutes definitely would have been too long. Read More
