This chocolate chip banana bread recipe is a tasty addition to your breakfast! This recipe is a great way to transform your browning bananas into a warm, sweet, delightful snack. This chocolate chip banana bread recipe is very simple for beginners to make, and is a real crow-pleaser! I made this banana bread without eggs, and is completely vegetarian. I chose to make this banana bread with applesauce instead of eggs.
This banana bread is moist, and is best eaten warm. Store the leftovers in the fridge, then microwave for 15-25 seconds when ready to consume again.
I prefer to bake this bread at 350 instead of 375 because I’ve found that baking the bread for a longer time at a lower temperature helps the banana bread stay moist inside compared to cooking for a shorter time at a higher temperature. Put a toothpick inside the bread to test if it’s finished baking. If the toothpick gets dough on it, the banana bread is not quite ready and should be put pack in the oven.
I’ve found that, funnily enough, a potato masher works well in place of a food processor or blender for bringing together all the liquid ingredients.
I used pieces on a chocolate bar in place of chocolate chips for this recipe.
If you want to make banana bread with 2 bananas, all you have to do is halve this recipe!
