Recipe by Krista Smith

These yummy mini breads are great for gifts! I added some mini chocolate chips to the mix and peanuts to a few of the loaves! 1/4 loaf is 4 weight watchers points.

This is a nice, though oddly not that sweet, quick bread. I made it as both mini loaves and regular loaves. Nice light taste. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Lightly coat four mini-loaf (2-cup) pans with cooking spray.
  3. Place bananas and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add butter, egg and vanilla extract, mixing well.
  5. Scrap down bowl sides and add flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and nuts.
  6. Mix to combine.
  7. Fill pans about half full with batter.
  8. Bake until firm in the center and a toothpick inserted comes out with a bit of crumb on it, 35-40 minutes. (Or use 16 muffin tins and bake 15-18 mintues, or a full-size loaf pan for 1 hour.)
  9. Cool completely.
