Delicious Banana Bread with Chocolate Chunks

I was cleaning out the freezer the other day and discovered 3 sad, old bananas. Not wanting to throw them out, I made the following recipe - and it was so good there was no time for a photo opp. It is also one of the easiest recipes I've ever made!

I used chunks cut from a huge milk chocolate bar instead of the chocolate chips and it was delicious. The recipe called for 40-50 minutes but it took my loaf about 1 hour to bake. Keep checking yours towards the end of the recommended time just to be sure it is cooked all the way through. It could have been because I used a silicone loaf pan instead of a metal one.

Ingredients & Prep: (Recipe from

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 bananas
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips or chunks

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine and mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Place batter in a greased bread pan (bottom only) or in muffin tins.
  4. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan. Complete cooling on a wire rack.
