Place in a glass bowl over a pot of fast simmering water, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon or wire whisk. Be careful not to get chocolate too far up the sides of the bowl. Do not heat water too high or your chocolate will burn.

In a small saucepan heat coconut milk and vanilla extract on high and reduce by half- pour into a small glass or bowl.
15
Once chocolate is melted, immediately remove from heat.
16
Whisk in coconut oil one piece at a time making sure each piece is incorporated then drizzle in the reduced coconut milk whisking vigorously.
17
The ganache should be glossy and dark.
18
Allow to cool for a minute or two before transferring to a squeeze bottle or a piping bag or even just a sandwich bag with the corner cut off will work fine. Then, drizzle on the cooling banana bread.

About

Staring at a bunch of overripe bananas, I knew banana bread was on the horizon, but I also wanted chocolate. Not just a little chocolate, but every type of chocolate I had in the house. Triple chocolate banana bread is actually a misnomer since the ganache on top makes it quadruple, but hey, that sounds kind of funny.

This recipe is vegan, soy free, and full of whole food deliciousness. It's one of those NO WAY this is vegan recipes. It's free of butter, eggs, dairy, and margarine.
