Slow cooker banana bread

My favourite slow cooker banana bread with chocolate.

Buttery, incredibly moist, loaded with chocolate chips and easy to make.

Yes, you can use the slow cooker to bake cakes or desserts. I love it specially to make spongy cakes, the texture and moist is always amazing. Plus no need to use the oven.

This is a traditional banana bread recipe with sugar and butter but I am testing healthier versions too. Soon available on the web.

Healthier slow cooker dessert ideas?

Two of my favourite recipes: Pumpkin and chocolate cake and Chocolate and pear cake.

Pumpkin chocolate cake is for sure my favourite autumn cake, when pumpkins are sweet and flavourful.

Can I bake it in the oven?

Of course, bake it at 180°C for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. You can also add some melted chocolate on top to get an extra chocolaty banana bread.

    Thanks, just put it on in the slow cooker after converting to cups/teaspoons. Bananas we were growing ripen all at once and we had to pick to stop the possums from eating them. Will let you know outcome. 🥰
