Our Dark Chocolate & Coconut Banana Bread is SUPER moist, mouth-watering, and will have you going back for thirds before you know it! Baking with olive oil (and no butter) can be tricky sometimes when you are trying to create your own recipe. The problem to overcome is, how do you keep the moisture in the baked good? Although olive oil adds great richness and flavor, you don't need as much, often leaving you searching for another source of moisture. That's where the coconut cream comes into play for this banana bread.
It's funny how certain foods trigger fond memories in life... banana bread is one of those foods for me. From elementary to early high school, my parents often drove my brother and I to school (which I was so thankful for). Whether someone forgot their backpack (cough cough at my brother lol) or lunch was left in the fridge, we were often running to class as the bell was ringing. However, whenever we had a little time to spare, my mom would drive us through Starbucks to order each one of us a small hot chocolate and warm banana bread slice. And each time, I knew that was a sign that it was gonna be a good day. Now, every time that I have a slice of banana bread, my mind goes racing back to those exciting mornings full of laughter.
