Teteeeup ya mau ada coklat2nya, takut bosen kalo pisang aja haha. Cocoa powdernya bikin lebih wangi juga kan. Penyesuiannya tentu di gula. karena pisang yang aku pakai sudah manis, jadi gula otomatis aku kurangin.
Buatku teksturnya agak kering, mungkin karena manggangnya kelamaan. tapi aku suka lembutnya, gak padat gituuu.. kalau panggangnya gak kelamaan pasti aku dapet moistnya. Minggu depan bikin lagi aah..

1/2 cup (55 grams) toasted walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped (aku mede saja, 50 gr, cincang –Asti)
1 3/4 cups (230 grams) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (30 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch processed or regular)
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar (aku 175 gr saja –Asti)
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (85 grams) white, dark, or milk chocolate chips
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 ripe bananas (approximately 1 pound or 454 grams), mashed well (about 1-1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

How To Make

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place oven rack to middle position. Butter and flour (or spray with a non stick vegetable/flour spray) the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch (23 x 13 x 8 cm) loaf pan. 

Place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Let cool and then chop coarsely.  

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 

In a medium-sized bowl combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, lightly fold the wet ingredients (banana mixture) into the dry ingredients until just combined and batter is thick and chunky. Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips.  Scrape batter into prepared pan and sprinkle the top of the bread with coarse brown sugar (optional). Bake until bread has risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 to 65 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool and then remove the bread from the pan. Serve warm or at room temperature. Can be covered and stored for a few days, or frozen for longer storage.

Makes 1 – 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf.
