Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

This recipe has a twist. So I didn’t have any cinnamon on hand {gasp, I know!}, but, I did have nutmeg and chocolate chips! This is a dangerous recipe, but, if you are brave enough to make it once, you may never go back to the same old boring banana bread EVER AGAIN!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

Wet Ingredients

  • 2-3 Ripe bananas
  • ½ stick room temperature butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ c light brown sugar


  1. Start by mushing the bananas with a fork.
  2. Once the bananas are mushy add the stick of butter and blend until creamy, adding in one egg at a time.
  3. Next add the brown sugar and vanilla teaspoon and beat until you have a smooth consistency.


Dry Ingredients

  • 2 C Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl until they are incorporated.
  3. If you have a stand mixer you’ll want to put on your bread attachment at this point. Let’s marry the wet and dry ingredients, shall we?
  4. Add a cup of dry ingredients at a time to the wet ingredients and mix until the dough comes together. Now let’s get CRAZY! Add 1 c of semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels and stir!
  5. Grease your bread pan and pour your mixture in. Make sure the mix is even in the pan.
  6. Bake in the oven for 55-65 minutes. To ensure the bread has baked all the way you can use the tried and true tooth pick {or fork!} method. Stick in the toothpick and if it comes out clean, it’s done!

    I can’t wait to try this my family loves to make bread. We have been looking for one the kids will love along with the adults. I think this one will be a winner.

  2. Tanya Holland says

    I usually make banana chocolate chip muffins but this seems even easier. I am going to try this recipe. Banana bread is a favorite of mine.


    I know without even trying it I would SO love this recipe. Banana’s are one of my favorite fruits and flavors and I love anything chocolate, but put those two together and it is one of my all time favorite flavor combinations. One time when I was younger my mom made banana bread with m&m’s in it and it was SO delicious. I am sure your recipe is too!

    I happen to have 2 large super ripe bananas upstairs! I’m so glad I saw this, I’m totally going to try it today, although I do think that I would add cinnamon instead of nutmeg. I LOVE cinnamon!

    Boy do I agree about boring banana bread. A member of our family makes pumpkin bread for two holidays every single year. I had enough around 30 years ago. Good for you experimenting in the kitchen. A new, more exciting bread has been revealed.
