Do you have a go-to dessert you like to make when you have an event or just want something yummy? For me it’s an easy to make banana bread with mini chocolate chips recipe. It’s one of my family’s favorite snacks.
This banana bread is seriously so easy to make, involves no heavy machinery and you only need to use one bowl.
Easy Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup butter room temperature (plus more for greasing loaf pan)
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 cup sugar you can add 1/4 more or 1/4 cup less according to your taste
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350° (175° C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl mash bananas with a fork (I use my clean hands) until smooth. Add softened butter to mashed bananas and mix well.
Add the baking soda and salt to the banana mixture.
Next add the sugar, egg and vanilla.
Add in the flour and mix well. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Pour batter in your greased loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes at 350°, 175° C, until toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Cool on baking rack for 15 minutes.
Remove from loaf pan and cool completely.
I’m not a sweet eater but I can’t pass this up. It’s the perfect snack to have with my nighttime cup of tea.
