How to make – soft moist banana chocolate chip bread

I’m all about homemade and you can’t beat homemade banana bread its so much better than any shop brought banana bread.

The trick to soft moist banana bread is to use over ripe banana.

Ripe Bananas

 As bananas ripen the starchy carbohydrates turns to sugar helping to keep you bread moist and soft, also by using brown sugar this will also help to keep it moist and soft.

So grab you over ripe bananas and turn on the oven and have a go at making this super simple and quick banana chocolate chip bread.

Cooked Banana bread loaf

 Grab a fork and a large bowl and mash the bananas, I like a few little banana lump in mine.

Add your butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla and beat together with your fork.

Wet ingredients for banana bread

Sift in you flour and baking powder, add your chocolate chips and fold in with a spoon or spatula until just mixed all together .DO NOT OVER MIX

All the ingredients for banana chocolate chip bread mixed together

Pour into your baking pan. I used a silicon loaf pan so I did not line or grease my pan, but if you are using a stainless steel loaf tin I would recommend lining it with baking paper.

Some weeks all our bananas get eaten before a brown spot appears on them, then other weeks the bananas are ripe within days and no one will eat them so that’s when it’s time for banana chocolate chip bread. You can also sub the chocolate chips in this recipe for nuts or go half chocolate chip and half nuts for a banana chocolate nut bread.

Notes If you have a few little flour lumps in your mix when you pour it in to you loaf pan that is fine as they will bake out when the banana bread cooks.

I always use salted butter in my baking so if you are using unsalted butter i would add a little bit of salt ( ¼ teaspoon of salt for every ½ cup butter)
