Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My family loves banana bread! Since I always make banana bread or muffins if we have overripe bananas, I decided to mix it up this time & throw in some chocolate chips! It was delicious, with just the right touch of added sweetness!

Choolate Chip Banana Bread

I always buy bananas at the grocery store, but sometimes we do not eat all of them and once they start turning brown, then no one will touch them! I can’t stand throwing food out, so when I have extra bananas, I let them get super ripe, & then make banana bread with them. Chocolate chips adds a fun & sweet twist to a family favorite!

Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Servings: 12 slices


  • 6 tbsp butter or margerine melted
  • 3 bananas very ripe
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/3 cups white flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chooclate chips
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Meanwhile, soften the butter or margarine in the microwave. Mix the bananas & butter or margarine together.
  • Add the beaten egg, sugar, vanilla & salt to the banana mixture & mix well. Then mix in the flour until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Grease a bread pan. I prefer Market Pantry’s baking non stick cooking spray. Pour the batter into the prepared pan & bake for about 55 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check if it is done. The toothpick should come out clean.
  • Allow bread to cool on a rack before slicing. Enjoy!
