Easy and Delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Sharing is caring!

I absolutely love chocolate chip banana bread and this recipe is so easy! It started with a search for banana bread recipes that didn’t use flour as I was trying to make a gluten free option for a church friend. I did find a few recipes that I’ll try out in the near future. But this particular recipe is not gluten free.

This recipe yields a regular sized loaf of banana bread but since I was making mine to take to church, I ended up using two loaf pans. Actually I can’t really call them loaf pans but they sure are handy to have!

I love easy baking recipes. Like my French toast biscuit bake. A lot of the prep-work on those can be done the night before.

The original recipe also called for nuts and no chocolate chips. But, since I’m more of a pecan than a walnut person, I skipped the nuts all together. And well, I couldn’t resist adding in chocolate chips.

I was going to try to make something else with the bananas since they really needed to be used. I think it’s hard though to beat a good banana bread recipe though.

The original recipe also called for vegetable oil but I used melted butter instead. I was going to try unsweetened applesauce but decided against it.

I had the butter out at room temperature and then microwaved it for 1 minute in two 30 second intervals. You can, of course, melt it in a small pot or pan on the stove as well.

Yield: 1 loaf

This recipe went over really well at church so I think might get a few mini loaf pans in the near future. I love making things to give as gifts and I think that this chocolate chip banana bread would be a welcomed one.

It wasn’t too sweet, even with the chocolate chips melting during the baking process.  This was also my first try at using light brown sugar instead of white sugar but I think it turned out really well.
