Chocolate Chip Banana Coffee Cake might just be my new favorite breakfast, snack, or even dessert.
Chocolate Chip Banana Coffee Cake is one of those recipe that counts as a breakfast, brunch, snack, or dessert.
Now I will totally admit that this is a special breakfast. This is not an everyday type of breakfast. But it is perfect for a weekend or holiday breakfast.
It is also a great way to use up those overripe bananas that you might have on your counter.
Bananas and chocolate are one of my favorite combinations. They just go together, especially in this banana chocolate chip coffee cake.
This cake is so full of flavor. It is delicious warm from the oven, but it is also good the next day.
The topping on this cake is part of what makes it so good. You might be tempted to leave it off, but don’t. It adds so much to the cake.
This cake is easy to make gluten free. To make it gluten free I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour blend. It worked perfectly.
You could also add nuts to this. I think it would be even better. We can’t have nuts because of my daughter’s nut allergy, but if you can have them you could either stir some chopped nuts into the batter or add some to the topping. Either way it would be great with nuts added.
