Moist Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips


Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3-5 mashed overripe bananas
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and vanilla.
  3. Stir in eggs, mashed bananas and chocolate chips until well blended.
  4. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just enough to moisten. Pour batter into greased loaf pan.
  5. Bake in preheated over for 60 to 5 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Note: Use nicely browned bananas for the best flavor. Mine pictured could go a couple more days but I wanted a nice treat for my kids after dinner tonight!
