The Best Banana Bread (with chocolate chips)

DSC_0214Happy fall! This is a solid banana bread recipe that results in a deliciously dense loaf.  It is nice and sweet, but uses minimal sugar – keeping it comparatively healthy to traditional recipes.  This recipe is easily veganized by using the substitutions in brackets.  I love and enjoy it both ways.  I often bake bite size portions in mini muffin tins for my little guy to take to kindergarten. It begs to be eaten with a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate ❤ ❤

Best Banana Bread:

  • 1.2 cup butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1/4 cup coconut or brown sugar
  • 2 free range eggs (or flax eggs)
  • 4 bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger (optional)
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (dairy free if you would like to keep it vegan)

Preheat oven to 350ºF

Cream together your butter (or coconut oil) and sugar.  I use my stand mixer with a paddle attachment, but you can use electric beaters or whip it by hand.  Add in your eggs and banana and mix well.  In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients.  Gently stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 60 mins.  If you’re using a muffin tin bake for around 20 minutes or until golden brown 🙂

Enjoy ❤ ❤
