The first step in making this banana bread is to get together all your ingredients together. You’ll likely already have many of the items in your pantry and fridge, which is another easy thing about this recipe. You will need to pull out unsalted butter that’s already soft, sugar, eggs, flour, cacao powder, baking soda, salt, bananas, plain Greek yogurt, and dark chocolate chunks.
