Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I had some banana's that were getting pretty ripe so I decided to make up a quick batch of banana bread.  I happen to have some chocolate chips on hand, so of course I had to add them!  Here is what I used...

1 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
4 medium overripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chocolate chips

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease loaf pan (or muffintin, if you prefer)
In a large bowl, combine banana, sugar, egg, vanilla and oil.  Mix well. Use a small mesh colander and sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda andsalt on top of the wet ingredients and then stir to combine. This will save you from dirtying a second bowl. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan (or muffin cups). Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a bread comes out clean. It took me about 45 minutes.  Muffins will bake faster.  Letcool before serving.

This was pretty delicious. I topped it with some homemade whipped cream.   I think next time I'll add a little homemade almond butter to the mix because what could possibly be better than almond butter, banana, and chocolate???



  1. oh yum! Have you ever used yogurt in your banana bread?

  2. I did a loaf of your banana bread last weekend, was awesome. We ate it that day there wasn't even a crumb. Will be making again when bananas are ready.

  3. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you!!
