My new favorite! I thought the banana bread I had been baking up all these years was great - I switched things up a bit, lessened the sugar, took out an egg and out with the sour cream. This bread is amazing! You don't have to add in chocolate chips but, OHHHH they really enhance the overall flavor of this bread. I always love making this because it doesn't require an electric mixer, and we always seem to have 2 leftover, sad bananas that can get put to great use in this bread.
You gotta give this one a try! Enjoy! Diane
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
2 medium bananas, over-ripe, brown and mashable
1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350
In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir in the melted butter.
Mix in the remaining ingredients; adding the flour in last. Once all ingredients are well incorporated -
Pour your batter into a prepared loaf pan *I use Pam with Flour for Baking spray on my pans. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. I use my 4 x 8 loaf pan for this bread.
