Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


For all you Banana bread lovers out there ,

This is by far the best recipe I have made to date.

Super simple and you probably already have all the ingredients on hand!


Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

The cinnamon and chocolate chips are the surprise flavors in this quick bread!

Ingredients

1-1/4 cup sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter…. softened ( I used margarine)
2 eggs 1/2 cup milk
3-4 mashed bananas ( I used 4)
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon ( I used 2)
1/4 – 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I used 3/4 cup)
walnuts if desired

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Cream together sugar and butter; add eggs one at a time.


Mix in milk, bananas and vanilla. 
Stir in dry ingredients. *do not over mix the batter. You don’t want it smooth. 
Over mixing the batter will give you tough, rubbery bread. 
Pour into greased loaf pans. ( made 2 loafs) 
Bake until bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 
about 60 mins for regular loaf pan, or 30 mins for mini loaves 

NOTE……My regular sized loaf pans only took about 35 minutes..

  8. Hi Diane
    Before I bake my next Chocolate Chip Banana Bread I thought I should ask you....can I substitute butter with olive oil as a healthier option ? If yes,how much oil for the half cup of butter ? And would this apply to all versions of Banana Bread ?
    Thanks
