Instant Pot Double Chocolate Banana Bread
If you like banana bread but wanted to try a different way to prepare it, you’re going to really enjoy this. While there is nothing wrong with the traditional version, I am a big fan of chocolate, so combining one of my favorite types of bread with chocolate was a great thing.
When you are craving something chocolatey, but you also want something that is still somewhat healthy, this Double Chocolate Bread is a great choice. You can reap the benefits that come from eating bananas while getting your chocolate fix for the day.
The Extra Ingredients You Need to Have
As you may notice, the recipe calls for ingredients that are quite common when making banana bread, but with a few extra ingredients to give it that chocolate taste. In addition to the overripe mashed bananas and flour, you will need cocoa powder and chocolate chips.
I like to use milk chocolate chips, but you can use dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate. There are plenty of different chocolate chips to choose from, so check out what your local grocery store has to offer before deciding which ones you want to add to your Banana Bread.
What to Add to Your Instant Pot Double Chocolate Banana Bread
Once your Instant Pot Double Chocolate Banana Bread finishes baking in the oven and has cooled off for a short while, you can slice it and eat it right from the baking pan. However, you might like to add a little something extra to it.
While I do like to eat the banana bread as is, there are times when I add a dollop of whipped cream on top to make it taste even more like a dessert. A sliver of butter spread on a slice of this Banana Bread also tastes excellent. You can eat your banana bread on the go or even have it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
How to Store the Instant Pot Double Chocolate Banana Bread
Keep your banana bread fresh by removing it from the baking pan and tightly wrapping it with clear plastic wrap. I like to use the press and seal option because I can cover the bread entirely and then seal it shut.
For maximum protection, I place the packed bread inside a large plastic zipper-sealed bag. You can put the banana bread in a bread box, on your kitchen table, or in the fridge. If you plan to freeze it, eat it within two months.

Instant Pot Double Chocolate Banana BreadPrint
Satisfy that chocolate craving with this Instant Pot Double Chocolate Banana Bread recipe. There is something about chocolate and bananas that simply go together perfectly. This banana bread is perfect to have as a snack or even for breakfast.
- 2 cups flour
- ½cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅔ cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 large bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- ¼ cup milk
- ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Prepare a 7.5 inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. (Any cake pan that will fit into the electric pressure cooker will work but cooking time might vary slightly depending on the thickness of the batter.)
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar, egg, vanilla, banana, butter, and milk.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix together just until combined. Do not overmix. The batter will be somewhat thick.
Stir in the chocolate chips, reserving a few for sprinkling on top.
Transfer the batter to the springform pan and smooth evenly.
Cover the springform pan with aluminum foil and place on a trivet with handles (or create a sling using aluminum foil.)
Pour water into the liner of the electric pressure cooker. Carefully lower the trivel into the liner.
Program the electric pressure cooker for 55 minutes on manual or “pressure cook.” When the cook cycle is complete, perform a quick release of the pressure. Remove the lid and carefully use a towel to remove the liquid from the top of the aluminum foil.
Lift the trivet from the pressure cooker and remove the aluminum foil from the springform pan. Allow the bread to rest until any water that has accumulated on the top of the bread has absorbed or dried.
To serve, release the springform pan sides and cut the bread into wedges.
