Preheat the oven at 350°F (175°C). Also, grease a 9×5 loaf pan or use a parchment paper and cover the pan insides.
Take a large bowl and add the dry ingredients – whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Once you have mixed all the dry ingredients well, set them aside.
Take another large bowl, add the peeled banana. Mash them well, but if you like them a little bit chunky, then just mash them coarsely.
Then add yogurt, oil, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix all of them together.
Then fold the dry ingredients in to the wet ingredients with a spatula. Do not overmix.
At last, add those chocolate chips for that chocolaty goodness. Save some of the chocolate chips to add on top of the batter once you have poured it into the pan.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread the chocolate chips evenly over the batter.
Slide the pan into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check whether the bread is done. If the toothpick comes out clean, take out the pan and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
Remove the banana bread from the pan and place it on the wire rack.
Slice and enjoy this healthy banana bread.
