White Chocolate-Raspberry Chocolate Banana Loaf

This recipe was originally suppose to be these fabulous cookies, I had seen over on It's Yummilicious. I made a trip to the grocery store, just to buy white chocolate for those cookies! I had all intent to make those spectacular mouthwatering cookies, but then I noticed I had some bananas that were very ripe and raspberries about to turn. So, I ended up making a banana loaf. I know I must have over a dozen banana loaf recipes on here already, but I'm always looking for new ones, to mix things up a little.

We really enjoyed this one! It was chocolaty, with nice bursts of tart rasberries and creamy white chocolate. I loved how moist the bread was, even the following day it was nice and moist. This would make a great gift for new neighbours, or even to bring to your school's staff room as a little end of the year treat for teachers.

1 2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup HERSHEY'S cocoa powder
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 C coconut oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed 
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh raspberries
1C cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease a large loaf pan and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix thoroughly with a whisk and set aside.  In a large bowl, beat the coconut oil and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Stir in mashed bananas and stir to combine. Gently stir in dry ingredients, until just about combined. Add in raspberries and white chocolate chips, stirring gently until just incorporated. Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes; until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
