Chocolate and Tahini Banana Bread

I love a good old slice of banana bread with a moist crumb and strong banana flavour. But by adding chocolate and tahini, it gives the ordinary banana bread a much needed makeover. Tahini gives the bread a more nutty flavour and chocolate, well, is just good to add in anything. After watching Adam Rose make a tahini banana bread on her Instagram and ever since wanted to make one myself.

I’ve made a couple of different kinds of banana bread in the past like the dulce de leche banana bread and the eggless and chocolate banana breadI wanted to add more in my baking kitty since they were so good. And this chocolate and tahini one is simply delicious. Bake a batch this weekend and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Prep time:

10 mins

Baking time:

45-50 mins


Flour – 1 and 1/2 cups

Baking powder – 1 tsp

Baking soda – 1/2 tsp

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Banana – 3 ripe ones

Unsalted butter – 1/2 cup

Vanilla – 1 tsp

Tahini – 2 tbsp (tahini recipe)

Egg – 1

Chocolate – 1/2 cup chopped + extra to melt and drizzle over bread


Preheat oven at 190 degrees C while you make the batter.

Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and powder together.

In a saucepan, melt the butter on medium heat and let it bubble for about 2 mins. Once it begins to smell slightly nutty and has turned brown in colour, turn the heat off and keep it aside.

Mash the bananas in a big bowl and whisk in the tahini, egg, vanilla and the butter. Mix well.

Now add the chopped chocolate chunks.

Fold in the dry ingredients. Pour the batter into a parchment paper lined loaf tin.

You could top it with crushed nuts of your choice if you’d like.

Bake at 190 degrees C for 45-50 mins.

Once the bread is baked and completely cooled, drizzle with melted chocolate.
