Mix baking powder, cocoa, and flour, sieve into the banana mixture and fold in until you have a smooth batter (feel free to taste).

Step 3/5

Chop the remaining chocolate and macadamia nuts, then fold in with a scraper. Grease your loaf pan and lay out some parchment paper. I like to let some hang over the edges, so I can lift the baked banana bread out effortlessly.
