Hawaii Mom Blog: Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I prefer to eat my bananas when they're still starchy (more green than yellow), and I often end up with uneaten bananas because they ripen too quickly.  Instead of throwing them out when they become too ripe, I make banana bread ... chocolate chip banana bread to be exact!

The recipe that I usually use calls for honey, and since I don't have any honey in my cupboard yet (I'm waiting for it to go on sale), I searched for a recipe that didn't have honey in the list of ingredients.  I found a recipe on Rachel Ray's website and decided to try it.  
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 bananas, mashed (1 cup mashed banana)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°F .
  • Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking or baking spray. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
  • Mix in the oil, bananas and eggs.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the loaf in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out and cool completely, right side up.
