Banana bread seems to be very popular in these times. I don’t know if its because everyone is trying to make sure they don’t waste any food or because banana bread is just THAT popular. But when I first arrived at my parent’s house, that was the first thing my dad requested that I make. I had to wait a week or so for the bananas to ripen and then I forgot about them. Thankfully, my mom had stored them for me, so they were ripe and ready for baking when I decided to make chocolate chip banana bread this week.
Although I’ve made banana bread before, I haven’t perfected it like a few other things I love to bake; until now. The chocolate chip banana bread I made this week is AMAZING. It was so good and so moist that my dad has requested that I make another one next week. Sounds like someone is addicted.
Here’s the recipe below for Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 2-3 ripened bananas
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup sour cream (or 2% Greek yogurt)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease your loaf pan.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together the butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes.
Add in the mashed bananas followed by the eggs, yogurt (or sour cream) and vanilla.
After you've mixed all the wet ingredients, fold in the dry ingredients. Then add in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and top with any leftover chocolate chips.
Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean (with the exception of a few moist crumbs).
Let it cool, then store in an air-tight container.
I hope you enjoy this bread as much as my family and I have. And if you make it, please let me know; I’d love to see your pictures.
