Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Tutorial

I've tried a lot of banana bread recipes and this one is by far the best. It's not super sweet and it's very few ingredients. No white sugar or oil needed. I threw in some chocolate chips for fun but you can omit them. You can also throw in some nuts if you wanted.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
1/3 cup chocolate chips

Step 1 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Step 2

In your stand mixer or with a hand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar. 

Step 3

While the butter and sugar are doing their thing, mash the bananas in a separate bowl. 

Step 4

Once the butter and sugar are creamed, add the eggs and banana, blend well.

Step 5

Pour the banana mixture into the bowl with the flour. Fold into the flour until just moistened. Don't over-mix.

Step 6

Add the chocolate chips, fold in gently.

Step 7

Pour into prepared loaf pan, spread out evenly.

Step 8

Bake for 60-65 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 5-10 minutes then turn the loaf out. Serve warm.

I just made this today-60 minutes is way too long. It was dark and hard by the time I took it out of the oven. Partly my fault for not checking it.

Delicious! I needed to reduce the sugar for dietary reasons though, so I changed to a half cup. Perfect amount of sugar.
