Super Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Super moist and deliciously sweet banana bread made with whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and dark chocolate chips! Perfect for breakfast or snack.

WAIT! Don’t do it! Don’t throw those ripe bananas away! Put them to good use. You know when you buy bananas at the grocery store, you fully intend on eating them all. You buy 5, one for each weekday. And hey, sometimes you actually do eat all 5 that week!

Sometimes however, Friday arrives and there they are, all the bananas, sitting on your counter. Maybe not all, probably 4 out of the 5. We’ll give you SOME credit. You had one on Monday. Great job!

I cannot count the number of times this has happened to me in the past. I love bananas but I either forget to grab one on my way out the door, decide to eat something else that day, or [insert silly reason here].

Your initial thought is “Ugh, I gotta throw these away. AGAIN.” But I have news for you, you totally DO NOT have to throw ripe bananas away! Why? Because the secret to making deliciously moist, sweet and flavorful banana bread is to use very ripe, almost-ready-to-trash bananas.

Trust me.

Super moist, sweet, and delicious banana bread with lots of chocolate chips and tons of banana flavor! Perfect for breakfast or snack!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout the years in cooking, you CAN get creative with almost rotten food. Ha! (Obviously, not all foods)

I place bananas with skin and all in the freezer. Yes, they get black. Yep, they get mushy! And well, yeah, they look pretty gross. But guess what? The more ripe they are, the sweeter the banana bread!

I don’t know about you but I love me some sweet treats! Plus, you add in some chocolate chips and you’ve got yourself a winner.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to have another slice. It’s just SO GOOD! Enjoy!

Super moist and deliciously sweet banana bread made with whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and dark chocolate chips! Perfect for breakfast or snack.

Servings: 1 loaf
Author: Jamie Silva
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3-4 ripe bananas mashed (frozen bananas are perfect because they're extra sweet)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour You can use all-purpose flour too
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips plus extra
  • 9 x 5 loaf pan
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large stand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar. Mix for 2 minutes until combined.

  3. Add the egg then add the bananas. Mix for 30 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is evenly combined. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Mix until the flour is evenly combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  4. Place a folded piece of parchment paper in a 9x5 loaf pan then spray the pan with non-stick spray. This will help remove the loaf later.
  5. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan. Bake for 60-80 minutes until a knife can be inserted in the center of the loaf and it comes out clean. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
