Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup banana chips
  • 1 17 .1-ounce package banana-nut muffin mix
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup chocolate milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon banana extract
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 6-by-3-inch miniature loaf pans with cooking spray; set aside.

  • Place the banana chips in a large zip-top plastic bag. Press out the air and seal. Using a rolling pin, roll over the chips until crushed.

  • Whisk the muffin mix and cocoa in a large bowl. Add the chocolate milk, oil and eggs, stirring until smooth. Stir in the crushed banana chips and chocolate chips. Divide the batter evenly between the pans.

  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pans on a rack for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make the glaze: Mix the confectioners' sugar, heavy cream and banana extract in a small bowl. Drizzle the glaze over the loaves and let cool completely.
