  • 4 Medium Bananas Speckled and ripe
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Butter Melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven (on convection setting if you can) to 325 degrees. Grease two loaf pans well.

  2. In a mixer (or by hand), blend bananas and sugar until well-mixed.

  3. Add eggs and melted, cooled butter to mixer and blend well.

  4. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt together. Add to mixer and blend just until incorporated.

  5. Add chocolate chips to banana mixture and blend just until incorporated.

  6. Pour batter in pans and bake 40 minutes. 

  7. At 40 minutes, cover both pans with a sheet of foil to prevent the tops from getting too brown. Reduce oven to 250 and bake 20 minutes more.

Recipe Notes

I’ve heard that if you coat your chocolate chips with flour, they won’t sink to the bottom. But no one has ever complained about this, and an extra chocolatey bottom has never bothered me. I sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top to compensate.
