Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Hello you all–  Here’s a recipe just like grandma used to make (almost).  She didn’t know the part about the mini chocolate chips.  But this is a moist, sweet, spongy treat–thanks to Grandma.

It’s a 4 generation favorite stand by.  Now Ani makes it.  When she gave some to a workman who was installing floors at her old apartment, he said that is was better than his wife’s banana bread, could he have the recipe?  Now that’s a recommendation!

2 smashed bananas
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1  1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips*

Smash those bananas and then stir in the oil, sugar and eggs.  Next mix in the flour, baking powder and salt.  Then add the walnuts and chocolate chips.  Spoon it into a 9″ square or round pan — or two smallish loaf pans sprayed with Pam.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.

*Use the mini size chocolate chips.  The big ones will sink to the bottom of the pan and burn.  I know this from sad experience.

This is so delicious hot from the oven– or toasted till crispy around the edges the next day.  Hope you like it!

  1. Rhonda…yummy recipe! I like to toast banana bread the next day and spread a little butter and peanut butter on it! Woof…okay so I spread a lot of butter and peanut butter on it! 🙂

    • I’m making this tonight for breakfast in the a.m….mixing dry ingred. first and then waiting till the morning to pop in the oven!! Don’t you love that smell in the morning with some hot and spicy tea! I need to send you some Cincinnati Spicy Tea…you would love it, I think.

  2. I noticed up top in the picture of the banana bread there are two checked napkins with feather stitching on them!! Did Nana Rose make them? Do you know how to do the feather stitch? I want to learn… 🙂
