Chocolate Cinnamon Streusel Banana Bread...

Because the world can never have to many banana bread recipes!  Am I right?


This banana bread is my current obsession when it comes to this classic quick bread!  Moist flavorful banana bread that has been topped with a buttery cinnamon streusel and then drizzled with chocolate.  Your house will smell divine as this banana bread bakes away in your oven!  Slather on some almond butter and I am in banana bread heaven!  

This little quick bread makes a sweet afternoon treat or would make an excellent addition to a brunch your weekend brunch spread!  Hey, speaking of brunch why not whip it up as part of a special brunch for dear old dad on Father's day!!  What dad wouldn't love this bread?  

Chocolate Cinnamon Streusel Banana Bread 
12 Slices 

3 Ripe Bananas Mashed 
2 Egg Whites 
2 Tablespoons Butter - Melted
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce 
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar 
1 1/2 Cup Flour (I Used Unbleached All Purpose) 
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda and Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Oats (Old Fashion) 
2 Teaspoons Sugar 
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon 
1 Tablespoon Butter
2 Tablespoons Sliced Almonds
2 Tablespoons Mini Chocolate Chips

In a large bowl mix together mashed bananas and brown sugar until well combined.  Add in your apple sauce, egg whites and butter.  Stir until combined, set aside. 
2- In another bowl stir together flour,  baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.  Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until wet and dry ingredients are combined. 
3- Pour bread dough into a greased loaf pan.  In a small bowl combine topping ingredients (excluding chocolate chips) until course crumbles form.  Evenly spread crumb topping over banana bread and bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 minutes.  
4- While banana bread is still warm (and in pan) sprinkle top of banana bread with mini chocolate chips.  Allow bread to cool completely before removing from pan!  Slice and enjoy!
