Banana Banana Bread

It’s been a baking kind of day.  One of my favorite things to do is make tasty treats in my kitchen as I not only enjoy the process I find it to be a big stress reliever in my life.  It’s a bonus that all my kids love my baking too!  Every day after school they ask for a snack of my own creation and by far their favorite is Banana Bread, loaded with Chocolate Chips!


I bake at least one loaf every week, sometimes two (like today) and a few weeks ago I actually made 4 loaves.  Three of them we ate and the fourth went to the neighbor’s house.  They love it too!  So here is my recipe for Banana Banana Bread, enjoy!

Banana Banana Bread


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs, beaten

2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas

1/2 cup sour cream or yogurt (optional)

1/3 cup Chocolate Chips (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  Lightly grease a 9*5 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar.
  • Stir in eggs, mashed bananas, and (optional) sour cream/yogurt until well blended.
  • Stir banana mixture in flour mixture; stir just to moisten.
  • Fold in Chocolate Chips (optional)
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Enjoy!  Great with butter, or toasted.
