Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

Last week I had a few bananas to use up so I decided to make a banana bread. I went in search of an easy recipe and found this one for Easy Banana Bread on the blog Blissfully Delicious. Not too many ingredients and everything in one bowl? Works for me!

I had some chocolate chips so I decided to add them. I also added 1 tbsp sour cream to the batter.


  • 1 3/4 c flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2/3 c butter, softened
  • 2/3 c firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 c mashed ripe bananas - I used 3 bananas
  • 2/3 c chopped walnuts - omitted this; instead I added 1/2 c chocolate chips
  • Added: 1 tbsp sour cream

Directions: Blend everything together and bake in a 10x4 loaf pan for 1 hour on 350 degrees. Note: I floured the pan first and it didn't stick at all.

  1. I definitely approve of your substitution of chocolate chips over nuts. Good call! :)

  2. Glad it worked out for you! This is my go-to fail-proof recipe for a quick snack. Nice substitution.
