One Bowl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Just a quick note!  This recipe was originally published in January 2017 and we’ve updated it just a tad to add a video.  The chocolate chip banana bread stays the same! 🙂

Banana bread is something that I crave regularly, all year round.  I look forward to cooler temperatures being upon us so that I actually feel like warming up my oven to make some!

Fall and winter are my favorite food seasons for sure.  As you know, I love quick and simple dinners, but there’s also nothing I’d rather do than spend a weekend hunkered down in my kitchen baking away!

Actually, when I first started this blog about a year and a half ago, it was going to be pretty much baking recipes only!  As I kept blogging, reading, and listening to everyone I started to understand that I would be much more of a value to you all if I posted things that we all need like weeknight dinner recipes!

Meals that are quick, easy, and not boring is what I was seeing that everyone wanted, and I enjoy making them and posting them just as much as sweet treats.  Who would have thought?!

One Bowl Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips Easy

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread:

Making chocolate chip banana bread is a breeze with this simple one bowl recipe!

  • First, you will want to mash your ripe bananas until they are as smooth as possible.  Then, add your sour cream and butter to the bananas.
  • Next, just drop in your sugar, eggs, and vanilla and mix really well once again!
  • Third, we will add the dry ingredients of flour, baking soda, and salt.  This is where it’s important not to over-mix.  Mix the batter just until everything is combined. Then, fold in the chocolate chips!

    DELICIOUS!! I add blueberries instead of chocolate chips to make it a tad more healthy. So moist and flavorful. It’s my go to recipe for banana bread.

    The easiest and best banana bread ever. Sometimes I leave out the chocolate and add walnuts or pecans.

    I’ve both made and eaten alot of banana bread, but I kid you not when I say, This is THEE BEST banana bread I’ve ever tasted. The only thing I do differently is add a little fresh squeezed lemon juice.

    Fantastic recipe 🙂 I alter it slightly by using 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated and have also added a streusel topping using 1/4 cup flour, 2 tbsp butter and 1 tsp cinnamon but the base recipe is fool-proof 🙂

    Seriously the easiest and the BEST banana bread!! I came across this recipe about 5 years ago, and it has been my go-to since. I’ve had success reducing the sugar to half a cup. Thank you for this yummy, fool-proof recipe 🙂

    I am not joking when I say, Litterally the best banana bread I’ve EVER had. I made this dozens of times, and it never lets me down. Sometimes i throw in nuts with the chocolate or I even sun the sour cream with yogurt. It ALWAYS turns out fantastic!! It’s a new family favorite. People always ask for my banana bread recipe and I send them here. Thank you for this recipe! I recommend it to everyone.
