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!

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

Course: Breakfast, 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 or all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips plus extra
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar for about 2 minutes until well combined.

  3. Add the egg then add the mashed bananas. Mix for 30 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Mix everything until all is well 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. Enjoy!

Top Ten Recipes of 2016!

Top Ten Recipes of 2016!

Facebook’s throwback feature reminds me that every year I say the same thing: THIS YEAR FLEW.

Except I really do think 2016 flew. Wasn’t it just January?!

This year was rough for a lot of people I know and for the world in general. I have to say though it was an incredible year for me, personally and career-wise. There were a lot of positive changes made in my life and, I don’t even feel like the same person that started the year. I’ve grown, learned and succeeded. What I had initially planned to do in January has taken a different turn because as we know, God always has other plans. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED. All good things.

One of them being this blog. I started this blog in February of this year. A lot of people don’t believe me when I say that but I did! Look! This was my first post. Eek, gotta update those photos ASAP.

I initially started an Instagram account, just for fun, posting photos from all the delicious restaurants I’d been to in Miami. For years, I was a Yelp Elite and would experience the BEST of the best here in Miami I also used to dine out A LOT. Things began to shift and evolve slowly into something I’d always wanted which was to work for myself. And what better way to start than to bring all your passions together and start A Sassy Spoon!

By the way, if you are looking to start a food blog too, these blog resources may help you!

In my past life, I would manage blogs and social media accounts for clients in the culinary industry (I still do sometimes). Now I have my own baby that has grown so much in the past year (and still has a lot to go!). This year alone, I’ve developed so many fun recipes, learned how to properly use a DSLR, how to edit photos, a bit of web development, design, networked with other bloggers, and even began monetizing. I also rebranded!

Most importantly, this blog has been on and popping ALL THANKS TO YOU!

A Sassy Spoon would be nothing without your support, your comments and your feedback. I love receiving emails, private messages, tweets, and comments from all of you. It really makes my heart smile! I plan to continue to make things amazing around here in 2017. Stay tuned + bare with me. :)

Ok, enough mushy stuff. Let’s talk FOOD!

Here’s a quick year in review of the recipes YOU loved from A Sassy Spoon.
