Chocolate Stuffed Banana Bread Recipe

We love banana bread in our house. My kids will let bananas get super ripe just so I have bananas read to make the bread with. My personal favorite is my banana muffin (can be made into a loaf) with peanut butter and chocolate chips. However, this time I wanted to make a chocolate stuffed banana bread. Since using my bundt pan is my new favorite, thing, I decided to make my Banana Bundt Cake Recipe, but stuff it with LOTS of chocolate!

I have the bundt pan on the left (I actually have three…why did I not return two of them when I got married???), but I love the other two above so much, that I may need to buy those too!

Chocolate Stuffed Banana Bread

Delicious recipe for a chocolate stuffed banana bread.

Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Keyword banana, banana bread, bundt cake
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Cool 35 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes


  • 1 Cup Butter softened
  • 2 Cups White Sugar
  • 5 Large Eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 6 TBSP Milk
  • 5 Small Ripe Bananas
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Cups Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 Bag Large Chocolate Chunks


  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Grease your bundt pan and set aside. 

  2. Using your stand mixer (or hand mixer), cream together your butter and sugar. Add your eggs one at a time. Mix until thoroughly incorporated. 

  3. Now add your vanilla extract, milk, ripe bananas and baking soda. Mix until completely incorporated.

  4. Add your gluten free flour and mix by hand. You want to make sure it is thoroughly incorporated, but you don't want to over mix it. 

  5. Pour half of your batter into your greased bundt pan. Next spread out the chocolate chunks. I added the whole bag. I wanted the center to be REALLY chocolatey (and it was). Now add the rest of the batter on top.

  6. Place your bundt pan in the oven and set your timer to 65 minutes. Once those 65 minutes are up, add additional time, as needed. The banana bread pictured above took 75 minutes. 

Recipe Notes

If you would like to use regular flour instead of gluten free flour...DO IT! The measurements stay the same!

Chocolate Stuffed Banana Bread…is it Good?

You guys…the chocolate chunks in this chocolate stuffed banana bread was an amazing addition! So good! My kids literally devoured the entire bundt cake in a few days! I think next time I make it, I am going to use the peanut butter and chocolate chips I use in my favorite banana muffin recipe! I think that would be really good too!

While I made this chocolate stuffed banana bread gluten free, you can totally use regular flour in place of the gluten free. The measurements do not change. Some people have asked me about almond flour and coconut flour. I don’t use those flours so I really don’t know if you could substitute those in. Sorry! If someone is familiar with subbing those two flours, let me know!

Other Dessert Breads/Muffins You May Like

Like I said before, my kids like banana breads and muffins. I’ve made many different variations. Some others you just have to try are:

Oatmeal Banana Cinnamon Crunch Bread

Cranberry Banana Muffins

Strawberry Banana Bread

The strawberry banana bread is one of my favorites. I took it to a family beach day and everyone loved it…even those that are not gluten free!

What is your favorite dessert bread?
