Another OMG goodness from The Culinary Cafe! These Mmmm Mondays are a wonderful collection of tasty recipes from The Culinary Cafe. Without further ado, here is the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe!
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 medium)
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup walnuts (optional, for me…don’t like nuts)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 small bag Ghirardellhi milk chocolate chips (really as much or as little as you like)
Grease the bottom and sides of a 8x4x2 loaf pan; set aside. Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir together with a whisk; set aside. In another bowl mash the bananas (I use a potato masher). Add in the oil, beaten egg, and sugar. Add the banana mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until moistened (the batter will still be lumpy). Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes until a wooden skewer comes out clean (I use a long wooden skewer, cause toothpicks aren’t long enough). Cool in pan on wire rack for about 10-15 minutes, or wrap in foil and store overnight. And to make this even more chocolatey…I drizzle it with chocolate syrup and serve it warm. I know, don’t judge!
