Chocolate Banana Bread w/ White Chocolate Ganache

J always wants bananas when we go grocery shopping but never ends up eating them so I end up having to use them up in my baking. Normally I make a Banana Apple Strudel muffin but tonight I decided to change it up and went the chocolate route. He like bananas but doesn't eat banana bread (once again, he's damn picky!) so I'm bringing half to work and half to my parents tomorrow.

Chocolate Banana Bread
1/2 cup unsalted butter, soften
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
1 tsb vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup ground Almond Meal (mine was from Trader Joe)
1 tsb baking powder
1/4 tsb baking soda
1/4 cup coco powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

White Chocolate Ganache
I used the recipe from Joy of Baking, click here for recipe. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan (you can also use muffin tins).

Cream butter w/sugar then add eggs and vanilla. Mix in bananas and sour cream. Stir in flour, almond meal, baking powder, baking soda, coco powder until the batter is smooth. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick (unused of course..hahaha) inserted and comes out clean. Cool the banana bread in the pan for about 20 mins then turn the bread out and wait until it completely cools then pour the decadent ganache all over the banana bread.
