The Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

If you know me you know that I don't usually like to cook.

But I sure do like to bake!

I am not a fancy food blogger but I do know what is good.

This is a simple recipe my family uses all the time and they love it! 

There is only one thing better than Banana Bread and that is:

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

3-4 ripe bananas mashed
1/3 c. melted butter or margarine
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1 egg

Mash the bananas, add the melted butter
Beat in egg, add vanilla
Mix well. 
Add the sugar, salt, and the baking soda
Mix in the flour
Add 3/4 c. chocolate chips
(I use a mixture of mini and regular chips)

Pour into a loaf pan

Bake for 60 minutes
at 350 degrees

Let cool and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream...

Hey, what's a few more calories??

  1. Oh boy... this sounds wonderful... I was just about to bake some Banana Bread! Perfect!

  2. Funny, one of our favorites are chocolate chip banana muffins. I pack them in the kids lunch. But I change it up a bit and add flax seed, whole wheat flour and oatmeal. I have the recipe on my blog here:

    So yummy! You don't even realize they are good for you.

  3. You have my vote! This sounds awesome!! I love bananas and chocolate:)

  5. Oh yum! I've been looking for a good banana chocolate chip recipe since we found out that our son is allergic to nuts. This looks like it would hit the spot!

  6. Just made 2 loaves of bread and a batch of muffins. My granddaughter says that I'm the best!! We had a blast making these and now I just hope we don't eat it all before hubby gets home from work!
