Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

If there’s one thing I can always count on turning out well, it’s chocolate chip banana bread.

I’ve been making banana bread since I was a kid, and perfecting the recipe for years. I’ve been told many times that this is the best banana bread ever (not kidding, plus I totally agree), and people are always asking me how I make it. So, now that you’re about to have the precious recipe for the “best banana bread ever”, why not whip it up and judge for yourself!

Now, I know you’re excited to see the recipe and some photos like always, but today we are going to do things a little differently. Instead of sharing my usual step-by-step picture tutorials, I’ve got something even better – a video!

(Note: This banana bread is dairy free!)

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Servings: 10-12

  • 3 Ripe Bananas (Overripe/brown is better)

  • 1 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour

  • Preheat oven to 350ºf and liberally spray a glass loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Peel the bananas and mash them in a small bowl with a whisk or fork until they become pulpy (like baby food).

  • Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Stir/fluff up with a whisk.

  • In a separate bowl vigorously whisk the eggs, sugars, vanilla extract, and oil until the mixture is smooth.

  • Add your liquid mixture, banana pulp, and chocolate chips to your flour mixture and mix until fully incorporated.

  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and place in the oven until a toothpick comes out clean (~60-70 minutes).
