Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe to Social Foods so I figured my new Chocolate Chip Banana Bread was the one to post after a long silence.

My husband was complaining that my normal Banana Bread wasn’t rising enough. It has great flavor however the sour cream was changing the texture of a typical Banana Bread. I did a little research and found this super easy recipe from Simple Recipes. This was super easy to make and I only needed to use a bowl rather than a mixer.

Ingredients: Use organic and local products if possible

  • 3 very ripe bananas peeled (previously frozen bananas that turned spotted)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips (or more if you want a lot of chocolate)


  1. Preheat the oven 350° (175°C) and butter a 4×8-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash your previous frozen ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  3. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour and then fold in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour at 350° (175°C), or until a loaf fully cooked. Test with a tooth pick. Insert into the center and if it comes out clean then your loaf is one.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Then enjoy!!!!
