Decorating Tips

For an extra touch of elegance, sprinkle the top with a mixture of chocolate chips and peanut butter pieces before baking. Once cooled, a drizzle of dark chocolate ganache or a dusting of powdered sugar can add a lovely finish, making the bread even more irresistible.


  • 3 large ripe bananas (or 4 medium)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable yogurt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or substitute 1:1 gluten-free flour for a denser texture)
  • More than 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable milk (only if the dough is too thick)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 to 6 chopped plant-based chocolate peanut butter cups


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Butter a cake mold.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in coconut oil, sugar, syrup, vanilla extract and yogurt until smooth.
  3. Gradually add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda. Stir until everything is well combined.
  4. Gently fold in the chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Check about 30 to 35 minutes after cooking begins. If the top browns too quickly, cover with foil for the remainder of the cooking time.

Enjoy this decadent, vegan Chocolate Banana Bread because it brings joy to every slice!
