This rich-tasting quick bread is made with a combo of two favorites: bananas and chocolate! Our Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe makes two loaves, so you'll have one to keep and one to share as a tasty gift.

What You'll Need

  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 4 to 5 bananas, mashed
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat two 9- x 5-inch loaf pans with canola spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oil, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and bananas; beat until thoroughly mixed. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired.
  3. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans and bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes then remove from pans.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'd like to know how to save & print some of these comments along with the recipe. It used to be so easy to do. Now, I have to write the comments I wish to record by hand.

this recipe is so delicious, easy to make, and not hard on the wallet! i substituted pecans for the walnuts and tasted better to my southern cooking tastes!

nice moise banana bread. Next time I am going to use my small loaf pans and make little loaves, I think it will be good!

divide everything by 2...

Really?? You can't figure that out??

We love this bread! Very moist and good. Thanks
