Chocolate Banana Bread Preparation
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly butter 8-cup loaf pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
In small saucepan, combine water and prunes and bring to a simmer. Simmer slowly until the prunes are very soft, about 30 minutes. Drain excess liquid.
Puree the prunes, bananas, and eggs in a processor until smooth.
Sift together the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda into a large bowl.
Stir in the banana mixture and combine thoroughly.
Gently stir in the walnuts, banana chips, and chocolate chips.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean (or with only a bit of melted chocolate chip on it).
Turn the loaf out onto a rack to cool, and remove the parchment from the bottom.
