“Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.” (Ernestine Ulmer)

Ingredients

Batter

190 gr (1 ½ cups) all-purpose flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

80 gr butter (room temperature)

100 gr (½ cup) granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 ½ – 3 bananas (mashed)

60 gr (¼ cup) plain yogurt

Streusel

2 tbsp ground cinnamon (up to 4 if you just love the flavor…)

50 gr (¼ cup) brown sugar

130 gr (¾ cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips

50 – 70 gr (¼ – ½ cup) chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions

 Preheat oven to 180° (350 F).

In a bowl knead the butter until smooth, then add the sugar. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, mashed bananas and yogurt and mix until well combined and creamy. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Don’t overmix.

To make the streusel, combine the cinnamon, brown sugar, chocolate chips and walnuts in a bowl.

At this point, spread half of the batter into the baking pan and cover with half of the streusel. Repeat with the remaining batter and streusel.

Bake for 40 minutes. Allow to cool before removing it from the pan.

Be ready for a delicious chocolaty banana bread with just the right blend of cinnamon!

Cheers!
