Easy homemade Dark Chocolate Mocha Breakfast Bread. Moist baked bread that includes dark cocoa powder, fresh brewed coffee, milk, olive oil and dark chocolate chips. Slightly sweet and full of rich flavor.
Coffee is one thing I can never get enough of. It’s gotten to the point where I’m adding it to my own baked goods. Well maybe that’s not a bad thing actually, since it lead to this Dark Chocolate Mocha Breakfast Bread. Coffee is a daily habit and that’s not only because of the caffeine boost. The ritual of brewing it, the taste and the social aspect around coffee make it one of my favorite beverages.
This mocha breakfast bread is based off another unique breakfast bread recipe I shared a while back. It resembles a brownie, especially while in batter form, but with much less sugar and closer to a cake-like consistency. It’s just sweet enough to complement the dark chocolate and coffee flavors, yet you can enjoy it in the morning with your favorite cup. It’s plenty rich with dark baking cocoa, dark chocolate chips and strong fresh brewed coffee.
It’s National Coffee Month, so there’s no better time to drink coffee or bake it into treats like this Dark Chocolate Mocha Breakfast Bread. With only a handful of ingredients and minutes of prep, this comforting breakfast bread is perfect with your morning cup.

what size pan did you use for it?
I used a standard bread loaf pan, which is roughly 4×9. Thanks for the great question.
AMAZING!! Was looking for a recipe to make for my gluten free baking stand at the farmer’s market. Was tired of all the fruity breads and this broke that mold. I used Namaste Gluten Free Flour at a 1 to 1 ratio Matching the recipe. Adding Espresso chocolate chips as well as dark chocolate was the only modification. Instead of 1 bread loaf pan, I used the Wilton 4 loaf silicone pan and baked for 35 minutes. Perfection!!! Took it to the Cider House to share and get feedback, and received ‘Yums’ and kudos from all. Thank You!
This was very tasty and wonderful as a dessert bread. I did make this in my bread machine so it came out a bit dense but delicious. I used 2 shots of Nespresso and that worked out well. Everyone at home was a fan of this! Next time I want to try it in the oven and see if it turns out a little lighter.
