Mom’s Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Filed under: Uncategorized — Emily @ 3:46 am

I don’t have a picture, but I thought I’d share this recipe since it is by far my favorite banana bread recipe. I like it much better than the Black and White Banana bread from below. Although I think I would love Dorie’s recipe if I had added chocolate chips instead of plain chocolate.

My mom passed along this recipe in the book she put together for my wedding. Her inscription on this recipe says: “A favorite of your teenage years”

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread:


1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 large mashed bananas

1 1/2 cup flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Cream together the butter and brown sugar.

Add the eggs, vanilla and mashed bananas.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.

Bake in greased loaf pan for 60-70 minutes at 350 degrees F.
