Just when you thought banana bread couldn't get any better, we added a generous amount of chocolate chips and our Chocolate Olive Oil. This loaf is perfectly sweet with three ripe bananas and only a 1/3 cup of brown sugar! It is also easily customizable; the chocolate chips can be substituted for crushed walnuts, almonds, or even pecans. The most difficult part of this recipe is simply waiting the 50 minutes while the bread is in the oven!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe:
- 3 medium overripe bananas
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup Wild Groves Chocolate Olive Oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup milk of choice (only if your batter is too thick)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350° and lightly oil a 9-inch loaf pan. Next, peel the bananas and place them into a large mixing bowl. Mash them well with a fork. Add the brown sugar, chocolate olive oil, and vanilla to the bowl. Stir until well-mixed. Add the flour to the bowl, then sprinkle the baking soda, cinnamon and salt on top of the flour. Then, stir everything together just until mixed (the batter will be thick). If your batter is way too thick depending on the size of your bananas, add in up to 1/4 cup of a milk of your choice. Fold in the chocolate chips, and then spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with the back of a spoon. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
