Main Image of Previously Published Post


2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 - 3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 large or 4 small bananas (mashed)
2 whole eggs
1 Stick of Butter (softened)
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla


Preheat your oven to 350.

Grease one 9x5 or two 8x4 loaf pans.

Tip: You can use a brush or the discarded butter wrapper with the shortening to grease the pan for less mess on your hands.


Mash bananas in a bowl, blend in the brown sugar and vanilla extract, set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.

Add the eggs to the butter / sugar mixture

and blend together until fluffy

Combine dry items together.

Mix together the dry and wet ingredients.

Add banana mixture, and mix until well combined.

Add Chocolate Chips and stir by hand.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes and then lower the oven to 325 and bake for another 20-25 minutes, keeping an eye on the bread toward the end of the baking time.

Bread is done when a toothpick or cake tester has only a few moist crumbs on it.

*If more baking time is needed, bake an additional five minutes, adding more five minute increments, as needed until bread is done. It can take the bread an hour +/- to completely bake.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes.

Remove from pan, let cool completely on a cooling rack.

Serve with coffee, tea, or your other favorite beverage.

This recipe is a favorite at our house and we hope that you enjoy this Old Fashioned Banana Bread as much as we do.
